I don’t concentrate to do japa with these thoughts I’m agitated. Kindly help me now please reply immediately.
Note: By Krishna’s grace no economic problems. I have two daughters.”
First thing is, you will acquire karma for this act.
Second thing is, you can get out of this karma immediately.
Let me explain both.
First of all, Only in India and some asian countries, even the grown up persons drive without a driving licence.
Though they have the licence, there is no guarantee that he got that licence after showing his driving skills to the RTO (Regional Transport Office) because there are many brokers who arrange a driving licence in India even without showing our driving talents.
Actually, day by day, it seems that the leaders committed a mistake of not entrusting the country to the strong and determined rulers who abide by rules and implement the rules strictly, after the independence. We are still paying the price for that. There is corruption in all stages that enables achieving anything though illegal just by paying a bribe and a new sincere ruler can not correct the system easily. Two laws for the same country.
Since Independence, in India, the schemes and projects have been planned keeping only the votes in mind, not the actual needs of people. Giving freebies instead of starting industries and developing agriculture to make the people earn and stand on their own legs.
Ok, As said by Srimad Bhagavatham, these things will go worse further that we are going to see in future. So, we are in a position to stop further births in these nasty atmosphere of kaliyuga.
Oh, I got emotional seeing the irresponsible ruling of the governments since independence. I am really worried seeing this trend of India that is blindly following the west forgetting its own glories.
Let me come to your point.
You drove without licence and hit at a man. However, for your goodness, he has survived. So, you have some mercy from God.
Since you have spoiled his plans for 20-25 days and made him suffer with pain, you add negative karma of hurting another person knowingly (because you had no licence).
As per the karma theory, you will be hit by someone in your next birth and suffer in the hospital for some days.
However, you can escape from this karma by doing the following:
(1) Admit him in a good hospital and give him good treatment and you pay all the expenditure.
(2) If he is a daily wage or he suffered loss of earning for 20-25 days, pay atleast 20-25,000 rupees as a compensation for his loss of earning.
(3) Give some money for the follow up treatment.
(4) Kindly enquire him periodically till he says that he has fully recovered.
(5) One day, sit with him and beg his forgiveness because only if he says from heart and by words that he has forgiven your mistake, your karma will be relieved. Also get the forgiveness from his spouse or parents and brothers/ sisters.
Make their heart cool through above support.
Hereafter, you can feel relieved from karma and your karma would have been deleted from your account.
This is the system of karma network.
In case, a person dies in the accident, the person who hit at him with his carelessness should accept the responsibility of all the expenses and support for his family maintenance and the studies / marriage of his children. This will be expensive because you are adopting a family of the deceased and support them from outside. This too will REDUCE the karma. That means, he will not die in accident in next birth, but will escape with some wounds because he took care of the family of deceased person. If he does not do this, he will die in accident in his next birth, though he had faced jail term for his accident in his previous birth.
Hope this clears your doubts. First get the driving licence or sell the car. Don’t play with the innocent pedestrians.
