Modern society lives in the illusion of irresponsibility, the slogan “take everything from life” is widely spread in it, which implies the continuation of “and you will get nothing for it.” But it is impossible to live in an illusion forever, when it collapses, people who believe in it will be left alone with their conscience and without the opportunity to correct the situation.
The truth is that every creature is responsible for every act it does. The Law of Karma is the law of causation. For the one who knows about him, there is no destiny, there are only the consequences of actions in the past. Now we are creating what we will have tomorrow, now we have what we created yesterday. Expressions such as “Everything is in our hands”, “As you sow, you reap”, “You have to pay for everything,” and so on are based on this wisdom. Making a certain choice now – we are shaping our own future. The law of karma says: “Whatever you do, everything will come back to you, everything that happens to you is just retribution” (Sutra on the Law of Karma).
Each person will have to experience everything that he has done for others. A woman, having an abortion, that is, in essence, killing – creates the karma of murder – which will return to her, in this or future life. The concept of karma is closely related to the concept of reincarnation – reincarnation. According to him, the soul does not disappear at the moment of death: “Having separated from the body, the soul does not perish; for nothing, the ignorant say that she is dying. The soul passes into another body shell ” (Mahabharata). The accumulated karma passes along with the soul.
In order to make sure that the reincarnation of souls is not fiction, you can study the relevant materials and studies (at the moment they are numerous, the most famous are the works of Raymond Moody). People are often horrified at the cruelty of this world, in which illness and death of “innocent” children, births of invalids are possible. The law of karma explains such phenomena – these are just natural rewards for the actions of past lives. The woman who killed the child in her own womb will be in his place. When, at the beginning of one of the next incarnations, she finds herself in the womb, the potential mother will have an abortion. A baby in the womb, powerless and unable even to call for help, will be brutally killed, dismembered, and deprived of the right to live: “Everyone must try what he himself has done” (Padmasambhava).
The accumulated karma, depending on the energy surrounding the person, returns to him at a different speed: “Karma [can have] an immediate result and a result that is postponed in time” (Yoga Sutras of Patanjali). It is realized in this incarnation, in the next one, or it can stretch over several incarnations: “Do not think that karma is wrong. You will live to bear the consequences of your deeds either in this life or in the next. “(Sutra on the Law of Karma). For someone, the reckoning will come in the next incarnation, for someone – after several lifetimes, and for someone – after many, many kalpas. That is why it is difficult for the majority to be convinced of the existence of karma, at least within the limits of a given life. Obviously, for people in our world, who also, for the most part, do not remember their past births, all the more who do not possess information about the reincarnation of their loved ones and friends, it is difficult to see the chain of events: an abortion – reincarnation – murder in the womb of the one who had the abortion. However, we can often observe how the consequences of actions return already in this life. The murderers, according to the scriptures, are “infected with a serious illness in real life and will receive the reward of a short life with very short happiness” (Dharani Sutra).
The one who has committed such an evil deed as murder will have a short life and a lot of illnesses: “If we killed in past lives, our life will be short and prone to many diseases. Some babies die as soon as they are born, which is a manifestation similar to the cause, that is, committing murders in previous lives. They will also die as soon as they are born in many lifetimes to come. Other people, although they live to old age, from childhood to death suffer from a continuous series of diseases, one after another. This is due to the fact that in the past they have killed and beat other creatures. “(Words of my all-good teacher). For some, the karma of illness and a short life comes practically immediately after an abortion. You don’t even need to be very observant to notice that women who have an abortion cripple their health, shorten their lives themselves, become frequent patients in hospitals of the corresponding profile (this topic will be discussed in more detail in the chapter “Physiological consequences of abortion”). Unfortunately, many do not have enough attention to see the causal relationship between a woman’s abortion at 17 and her early death from uterine cancer at 45. By abortion, a woman ruins her life. You should not be surprised if your family broke up after the termination of pregnancy, a serious illness began, or another misfortune occurred. This is all a consequence of infanticide. But unfortunately,
The story of one woman told on the Internet: “She had two small children: a girl and a boy, three and five years old. Having become pregnant with the third, she went to have an abortion, and the children stayed with their grandmother. The grandmother did not keep track, the children drank some of her brightly colored pills, went to bed, and … did not wake up. The woman returned from the hospital, having got rid of the unborn child, buried the dead children, and after that, she never became pregnant again. Now she often travels to the Lavra, prays a lot, and cries for what she has done, but she has no children and, apparently, will never have. “Take care of your children!” – she said to me at parting. ” Heavy karma extends not only to the woman herself but also to the doctors who perform this operation. Here is an example from the Tyumen city hospital: “One doctor N. performed 70 abortions in six months in order to earn more money, it seemed to her that she was poor. And her twenty-year-old son died a year ago. It was just an accident, a “strange incident”. In this car, in which he had an accident, no one was injured, not even a single scratch. Only he died – from a fracture of the base of the skull. And outwardly – completely unharmed. ” Performing an action, even once, a person forms the habit of doing this – and this is also one of the karmic consequences, called in Buddhism “the effect corresponding to the cause.”
For murder, it is this: “The corollary corresponding to the cause is that under the influence of the previous habitual inclinations you will begin to experience the pleasure of committing murder.”(“Words of my all-good teacher”). A woman who decides to have an abortion lays the foundation for a vicious circle: to enjoy sex, get rid of unwanted consequences, kill others and violate the universal laws of life. She gets used to living only for the sake of satisfying her base passions, and, ultimately, becomes a victim of them, ceases to perceive any relationships that are built above the level of lust. Such a woman, who places her own desire for convenience and pleasure higher than the value of the life of another being, behaves like an egoist, and as a result, she will receive the same attitude towards herself, for example, from a man who has cruelly severed relations with her: “After an abortion, after everything we’ve been through, he dumped me as a used thing. And said he wanted a cute little girl he could take care of and not rubbish like me. It was terribly offensive to hear all this. ” Having killed once, a person forms in himself a tendency to continue to kill. After reading the forums or talking with abortion patients, you can see that the first abortion for a woman usually costs great mental anguish, this is a hard-won decision that her soul resists with all her might. And then – the second, third, fourth … the immunity to murder is already lost, and everything is going on as if on a knurled track … “When my daughter was 1 year old, I became pregnant and had an abortion (before, I did not even want to think about it and did not expect this from myself ). And then even worse, after a year and a half, 2 more abortions (all for a short period – up to three weeks). I love my husband and child, but for some reason, I cannot agree with the birth of the next children.
The evil tendency will carry over into the next life: “If we used to kill, we are drawn to kill. If we used to steal, it gives us pleasure to appropriate someone else’s, etc. This explains, for example, why some people from early childhood kill all insects and other living creatures that come across their eyes. This killing tendency comes from similar actions in past lives. From the very cradle, we all act differently, depending on the actions that we performed in past lives. Some like to kill, others to steal, and there are people who do not have a penchant for such actions and experience pleasure in doing good deeds. All these tendencies are a legacy of past actions, in other words, a consequence similar to action, for example, the instinct to kill in a falcon or wolf, the instinct to steal from a mouse is in each case a consequence of(“Words of my all-good teacher”).
Having killed, a person will repeat this action over and over again, and experience punishment for this, both in this and in other worlds. According to Buddhism, with reincarnation, in accordance with karma, a soul can be born in one of six worlds: the world of gods, the world of asuras, the world of people, the world of hungry ghosts, the world of animals or the hellish world. If a being lives from life to life worse and worse, gradually losing the ability to distinguish between moral and immoral, then eventually it goes to hells, where he is helped to get rid of the consequences of committed negative actions, and after that he can return to higher worlds. The karma of murder presupposes rebirth in hell. Here is a confirmation of this statement from the Buddhist sutra, the heroine of which repents of having an abortion: “… my family situation does not allow me to give birth to any children. Because of this, I used drugs to kill an unborn child who was [already] eight months old. The child I threw out was fully formed, with four healthy limbs, and had the body of a boy. Later, I met a wise man who told me: “People who deliberately plucked out the fruit […] after their death […] will go to the Avichi hell to experience terribly intense suffering.” protection of children).
The same sutra says: “A woman who plucked a fetus creates the same karma as other murderers: ‘… you deliberately took poison that led to a miscarriage. You have created such heavy karma, so its nature will lead you to Avichi hell. The criminals in the hell of Perpetual [Suffering] did the same. ” We can find descriptions of being in hell in various Buddhist sutras, Vedic texts, Christian scriptures. Here is what the Tathagata Light Penetrating Everywhere gives in the same Dharani Sutra: “In the cold hell, criminals are blown by a strong cold wind and suffer from severe cold. In hot hells it is hot, criminals are in hot waves brought by a hot wind. In the hell of Continuous [Suffering] there are no alternating sufferings – intense cold and intense heat. But there is a great fire that comes down from top to bottom, then rises again from the bottom up. The four walls are made of iron and covered with iron mesh. The four gates, in the East, West, North and South, are also filled with the great burning flames of karma. The length of the hell of Continuous [Suffering] is eight million yojanas. The body of the criminal covers all hell completely. If there are many people there, their every body also spreads everywhere, filling all hell. The bodies of the criminals are covered with iron snakes. The suffering from this is more powerful than the great burning fire. Some iron snakes can enter and exit his eyes and ears. And some iron snakes twine around their bodies. Great fire tears apart the limbs and joints of criminals. There are also iron ravens that pluck and eat its meat. There are also copper dogs that tear and gnaw on his body. Bull-headed hell guards hold weapons and roar like thunder. With harsh voices full of hatred, they shout: “You have deliberately killed the fetus, therefore you are subject to such great suffering, kalpa after kalpa, without interruption!”
Islam also speaks about the hellish punishment for abortion: From the book “Javharatu Luluiyya fi sharhi arbainu Navaviyya” words: “I am oppressed!” Then, he will cling to my mother and say: “O my Lord, ask her why she killed me?” Allah Almighty will ask: “Why did you kill him, while I forbade taking his life except by right? O my angels, hand it over to the angel Malik, who watches over Hell, to lock her in the pit for the saddened. ” Then they will tie her hands to her neck, put on a collar and chains, and drag her to Hell. Angel Malik will throw her into the pit of Sorrow, in which there will be hot fire and animals: wasps, snakes and scorpions – they will torment sinners. Also in that pit will be the Zabaniyat angels with spears of fire in their hands,
The one who killed the child in the womb, according to Christianity, at the Great Judgment will be expelled into the outer darkness: “To the woman who was in love with the woman who was conceived in her womb, so that he would not see the world here, He (the Judge) would not allow him to see the new age,” writes St. Ephraim the Sirin – as she did not allow him (her child) to enjoy life and light in this century, so He (God) will deprive her of life and light in the century to come. Since she decided to cast out her fruit from the womb prematurely, in order to hide it in the darkness of the earth, then she, like the dead fruit of the womb, will be cast out into the pitch darkness. Such is the reward for the fornicators and fornicators who encroach on the lives of their children. ““Girls! Advice for everyone: never have an abortion !!! This is the worst decision you can make. I did when I was 17. I am very sorry, I did not allow some soul to go through the earthly path, I caused brutal pain to this soul, but plus everything, it crippled my life at the beginning of the path, entailed such terrible consequences! If I only knew … Not everyone is punished so headlong, but if women in your family have had abortions, and in large numbers, then, do not hesitate, problems and suffering are provided for you. I say so that at least the fear of severe punishment will stop you if nothing else is able to drag you away from the abortion clinic. Ignorance of the laws does not remove responsibility for the crime. Life is fleeting, and when the spirits of malice drag you to hell, it will be difficult for the angels of light to help your soul (especially, an unrepentant soul), since laws in the “posthumous” world work, in contrast to the “earthly” “.
Speaking of karma, they often mean individual karma, which manifests itself for each individual person. But there is also the karma of the nation, the karma of the people. Each of us, acting and thinking in a certain way, partly shapes the world not only for ourselves, but also for our children, for close relatives, for the clan, and more broadly, for the nation as a whole, and, ultimately, for our planet Earth. Now in Russia there are millions of “invisible” murders every day – millions of unborn children die innocently. By translating the conversation into a plane of energies, the following picture can be created. It is murder, like any other manifestation of aggression, that disrupts the work of muladhara (the root chakra, the first of the seven energy centers of a person). The killer can no longer receive the benefits associated with the adequate work of this chakra. First of all, muladhara is responsible for the material plane of our existence: for the prosperous conditions around us, for the availability of the necessary food, means for life. In this regard, the fruitful land of Russia, which always gives bread in abundance, is not a “geographical” advantage – it is the result of the correct work of muladhara, the chakra that connects a person with his native land, among the representatives of the people as a whole. A people that does not tolerate violence will never be in poverty in material terms. The converse is also true: by killing our children, we condemn ourselves to poverty. will never be in poverty in the material sense. The converse is also true: by killing our children, we condemn ourselves to poverty. will never be in poverty in the material sense. The converse is also true: by killing our children, we condemn ourselves to poverty.
There is a second aspect of the work of the same chakra. Peace will always reign on the lands of people who are not characterized by aggression. A person with absolutely pure mooladhara cannot, for example, be hit, in his presence it is impossible to show aggression. This is evidenced by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: “In the presence of one who has established himself in non-violence, all hostility ceases.”(Patanjali Yoga Sutras). The Russian people have always been peaceful, we have never been the first to unleash military conflicts, have never tried to “get involved in a fight” once again. And for this they received blessings – there were always fewer wars in our territories than, for example, in the prosperous “west” (for comparison, in the Middle Ages in Western Europe, it was hardly twenty or thirty years without a war). But gradually, our consciousness, not without the influence of the “film production” paid for by the West, becomes more and more aggressive, the lands begin to become scarce, and military conflicts are approaching our doorstep. And, looking the truth in the eye, it must be said – we ourselves have created such a fate for ourselves, and legalized abortion is one of the steps towards this.
Why, then, abortion, like any murder, involves such a heavy punishment, both for an individual and for the people who have legalized murder in themselves? Incarnation in the human world is a precious gift that is not often given to souls. Billions of kalpas pass until a soul wandering through the hellish or animal worlds gets a chance to incarnate in the human world.
Shantideva said that the chance of gaining human life is equal to the likelihood that a blind turtle that lives at the bottom of the ocean and rises to the surface only once in a hundred years will fall headlong into a golden yoke carried by the wind along the surface of the ocean. Incarnation in the human world is so valuable, because only in it is self-improvement possible. In the lower worlds there is only suffering, it is impossible to engage in cultivation practices there. There are too many pleasures in the higher worlds, and there is not enough time and desire to devote time to spiritual development. Hélène Wembech is a practicing psychologist and hypnotic regression specialist, an innovator in the study of past lives and intrauterine development, who has conducted research that has provided new insights into the spiritual life of the unborn child. She was doing regressive hypnosis
During the experiments, she asked 750 people under hypnosis questions about their life before birth. Many of those interviewed knew that they incarnated in the twentieth century to fulfill a specific task, and most of them said that they themselves chose this time for birth, as it provides a huge potential for spiritual growth. But only those who remained to live could say this. The victims also had their own plans for development, but their own “mothers” prevented them. Anyone who interferes with the plans of the gods, deciding to kill, violates the alleged development of not only one person (killed). Thus, thirty percent of the patients interviewed by Helen Webech realized the need to come into the physical world right now in order to meet certain people. If one member of this karmic group is killed, the rest of the souls associated with him, it becomes more difficult to fulfill your life task. Moreover, abortion is an action that prevents a soul from coming into this world and working off his karma. The killer takes upon himself all the karma that this soul had to work out. If in past lives the victim stole, the killer will be responsible for theft, if she committed adultery – for adultery, if she lied – for a lie, as if he himself committed all these actions.
It is important to clarify here. The law of karma is not so severe because of someone else’s cruelty, and it is not a matter of lack of compassion. For every rash act of a person, a chain of consequences is automatically built. And it can be great. By performing an abortion, you can kill a person who was supposed to bring spiritual teachings into the world, and thus, depriving millions of people of the opportunity to develop. The consequences of an act can increase in the same way as during its movement, an avalanche increases, and the one who served as the primary cause is responsible for the entire chain that has arisen. This is why rewards, such as being in hell, are so long. Understanding the law of karma gives a different basis for making decisions. For example, a common cause of abortion is the fear of giving birth to a child with disabilities in physical or mental development. It, indeed, it is incredibly difficult, especially in Russia, to raise a disabled child. But a woman who has the karma to bring up such a child will still not escape her, the same soul, with the same imperfect body, will come to her again and again, in future lives, until there is enough wisdom to accept it. Trying to postpone the hour of retribution, the hour of reckoning, which, alas, is inevitable, you can only aggravate your situation.
Many people refer to the limited material resources and the inability to provide for the baby. But a child comes into the world with his karma and with his energy. If he is supposed to grow up in poverty, and even from hand to mouth, it is impossible to change this, he will still have to go through such a childhood. For the mother, it is also an opportunity to pay back the soul that has come, providing it in the way she can now. The more he can give and donate, the more will return to her in future lives. On the other hand, every child who comes into this world carries with him all the energy he needs for development. Often, along with the birth of a baby, new prospects and opportunities to earn more open up in the family, simply because the soul that has come to you has the karma to grow in abundance. In India there is a concept of “golden children” – these are children, with the appearance of which wealth comes to the family. Women resort to abortion for a variety of reasons. One may feel unwillingness to bear the responsibility of motherhood, thinking that the child will disrupt her life plans, she still needs to graduate from university or get a promotion in the service. Another may fear for her reputation and fear reaction from family and friends that she will be spoken of or thought badly if she gives birth when she is not married. Someone thinks that it will be difficult to feed another child, for this you will have to limit yourself in everything, give up new shoes, from entertainment. may fear for her reputation and fear reaction from family and friends that she will be badly spoken of or thought of if she gives birth when she is not married.

Some are forced to have an abortion by loved ones, family members, or even the political system. “I gave birth to a son at the age of 17. I wanted an abortion, and now I’m happy. Believe me, children are everything! Don’t become murderers for freedom, career, money, public opinion – it’s not worth it. ” For many, the decision to have an abortion is a difficult and painful one. But to be honest, we have to admit: almost all such decisions are based to some extent on selfishness and selfishness. No matter how difficult it is, let’s face it: in the end, this is a choice in favor of human comforts and personal reputation, momentary benefits, and in fact, those little things that we will not remember on our deathbed. The Law of Karma allows you to look at the decision about abortion from a more global perspective. Compare such values as, for example, “reincarnation in hell” and “the ability to develop for the soul”, “Human life” and “renovation in a new apartment” / “unfinished education” / “old clothes”. Are our dubious notions of happiness worth human life?
Reflections on the law of karma encourage us to pay more attention to our actions, words and decisions, analyzing them not only in terms of, for example, one-time benefit, but also in terms of consequences, karmic results. Yes, now, perhaps, it will become easier and better, there will be an opportunity to enjoy freedom or material benefits for a while, but what will happen then, when all the suffering caused, return back? All our torments stem from only one false idea of life. We think that we live once and are ready to “walk over our heads” to become happy. However, true happiness lies not in consumerism, not in selfishness, not in finding a more convenient and calm option for oneself, but in harmony with the world and people around, in observance of natural laws: on someone else’s death).
