Jagadguru Vani


It is ridiculous to suppose that Prarabdha can be more powerful than one’s will. The reason for this is that Prarabdha itself is a creature of one’s will. What one performed guided by one’s will in the previous births, is what is now appearing as fate. What one has brought about due to exercise of one’s will in the previous births can certainly be overcome by exercise of will power in the present birth, provided one makes adequate effort.

– Jagadguru Sri Abhinava Vidyatirtha Mahaswamigal
