The purpose of escaping the Karma is to reach your essential and eternal nature. That is the soul, the all-pervading, immortal soul which is neither born nor dies. But the soul is now caught and imprisoned in this bodily cage made up of flesh, bone and marrow, germs, and worms, etc. And it is seeking a way to get freedom. Freedom, peace, and bliss are one and the same. If a man has got freedom, he’s peaceful. We know we are not free. It doesn’t matter how much money, how much wealth, how much power and position we have, we know we are not free. We are unable to do things according to our wish. Getting imprisoned in this bodily cage is due to the desire to enjoy the fruits of our actions and even if there is only one desire, we will fulfill it at sometime. None of our desires will ever go unfulfilled. That is the law.
