What Destiny Means

You may have wondered whether destiny really exists. Yoga Vasishta tells us what destiny really is. Listen to this audio to learn more.

What Destiny Means

Destiny is the result of your own past karma. Whatever you do, good or bad, you have to undergo its result. You can not escape from it.


Who controls destiny?

You can not control the result once something is done. You can do good deeds for a good future, and refrain from bad deeds to avert trouble.

Destiny is sure to happen. Time controls when it happens.

Destiny awaits to happen means it is only a matter of time before you get the result of what you do.


How does Yoga Vasishta depict Time and Destiny?

As a dancing couple. They dance in synchrony from creation to elimination without taking a break by giving to beings the results of their karma.


Destiny in Sanskrit

The Sanskrit term used by Yoga Vasishta for destiny in Niyati (नियतिः). Niyati means - नियम्यते अनेन - that with which the world is controlled. Another word is दैवम् - जन्मान्तरकृतं कर्म तद्दैवमिति कथ्यते।. It means that your own karma from the previous births becomes your destiny.
