Articles - ABOUT THE IMPRINTS
All actions will
create appropriate imprints in man. The Law of Nature reflects such
imprints again and again in the mind and the body and involves the
man in the same actions and bring out proper results as pain and
pleasure sensation or peace and satisfaction. Such repetition of the
same type of actions makes the imprints deeper and stronger and
conditions the personality appropriately.
I am telling very
often to superimpose the imprints of sinful actions by virtuous
deeds. There is a common notion that even good actions will cause
lengthening of the birth cycle, so as to get the happiness of
enjoying the results of good deeds. I have to clear this point more
Man's existence has a
purpose. His consciousness has to be developed to its perfection.
Before the realisation of the purpose of the birth, he was
conditioned in his pesonality by sensual limitations. Thereby, three
imprints of sins and
undue attachment to men and material have been formed in him.
the consciousness is developed, the imprints will be purified. When
the imprints are cleared or balanced the consciousness will
automatically develop. Any of these two or both could be achieved
only by the virtuous way of life. Any action which will help to
purify the impurities develops good deed.

the duty of man to do only virtuous deeds to reach his goal. Any
action which would increase the aforesaid three impurities or
obstruct or delay or divert the journey of the consciousness in its
development towards perfection is termed sinful and negative.
good actions are only positive and purposeful to reach the goal of
human beings. They are to be practiced and maintained to enjoy
harmony, happiness and peace.
negative actions should be avoided. If any such action had already
been done, those imprints should be superimposed by the imprints of
people are thinking that good actions also will cause new births to
enjoy the benefits or the fruits of the good actions. Only this
concept I deny.
actions lead one to reach the goal cutting the length of the birth
cycle. What one should do is good deeds and that is duty. If it is
done, that will help one to reach the goal. Good deeds also get
those imprints when reflected, involves one to do the same good
deeds and thus help him to reach the goal.
imprint of Karma loses its reflecting force in one hundred and forty
years calculated for seven generations (twenty year period for one
generation). But, if within this period, the imprint is revived by
some thought or action, that will be in force for a further period
of one hundred and forty years from the time of revival.
Therefore, there are more chances for endless continuance of all the
imprints unless they are balanced by proper method of neutralization
which has three types:- 1) expiation, 2) superimposition or 3)
Akashic records once created lasts for ever and cannot be erased.
Once imprinted in the universal consciousness, they exist
permanently. However, imprints in the physical body can be
superimposed and changed. In the Super-consciousness, everything
from the beginning up to the present moment stands recorded.
