Is violating the karma possible?
ACTUAL QUESTION from a woman devotee:
Harekrishna prabhuji, i read your today’s counselling where a 65 year old women has given birth using artificial means. U have answered that she has violated her karma of not getting a child. I want to ask ,how can a human being becomes so powerful that he or she can change the destiny of themselves, as per her karma she cant have child, so thats her destiny, how she changed it? Why didn’t the child die,that way she would remain childless as per her karma. If she can have a child does that means anything written in our kundali can be changed if we do demigod’s worship?
I have written in the past:
“Karma can never be violated, but, can be postponed to the next birth. If you violate the karma using your intelligence, the karma network will bring the situation back to the condition that existed before the violation soon”.
At the same time, One can get immunity from karma if he surrenders to Krishna and detach from material attachments.
Moreover, if one postpones his karma to the next birth, he will have to get punished in the next birth for such postponement.
In the above case mentioned by you, that lady had the karma of NO CHILD in this birth. If she bears that karma and remains childless in this birth, she will be blessed with a nice child in her next birth.
In some cases, there will be a karma of delayed child birth or getting birth after some permitted level of treatment.
However, such treatments should be done before the nature stops the ability to conceive, ie, before attaining menopause.
Instead of accepting her karma, she has tried artificially for a child.
If a woman attains menopause, that means, she will be unable to produce eggs.
Therefore, she has to use the egg of some other woman and the sperm of her own husband to fertilize and produce a child.
Since she does not use her own egg, it is not her child though she grows that child within her womb.
Therefore, she can’t be considered as having become a mother. She has just rented her womb for another woman who used her husband’s sperms. She has just played with the cells and given her womb for a fertilized foetus to grow.
However, she has allowed the sperms of her husband to be united with another woman’s egg. Therefore, this is nott her own child.
This game with the sperms and eggs are just a scientific play. If she had used her own eggs and her husband’s sperms in growing the foetus inside a test tube and later implanted in her own womb, (before she attains menopause), it can be considered as getting child through medical treatments that is allowed as per karma.
First of all, she has not become a mother in her age 65. She has given space in her womb for the cells of her husband and another woman. It is adulteration.
Since she has given her womb for such adulteration, she will incur severe karma and she will be given no child in her next birth also.
In case, she had saved her egg in frozen condition in the storage centers and used it after her age 65, that too is the violation of nature’s rules because the biological age of the eggs will change though we store it in frozen condition. Fertilizing with 10 years or 12 years old eggs is a clear violation of nature because the biological age of egg is just 28 days at the most.
By violating nature’s rules, she is adding new karma. She has to face the reactions in her next birth by having no child.
Thus, any medication should be without the violation of nature’s laws.
Hope this has cleared your doubts.
What are the examples of violation or postponement of karma?
(1) If you have the karma of marriage life with the quarrels, but, you see your horoscope and then decide to avoid marriage, this is the postponement of karma. Though you do not suffer in marriage life now, you will get a struggling marriage life in your next birth.
(2) If you have no marriage as per karma, but, marry because of the inducement of senses, that marriage life will end in separation very soon. This is the violation of karma.
Thus, though we try to violate the karma, the nature will set the rules in place again by reversing all your efforts.
