  • Prarabdha means that karma which has already begun to blossom. i.e. Think of karma as an arrow. The arrow that has not yet left the bow is not prarabdha. However if the arrow has already left the bow, then it HAS to HIT a Target. That is prarabdha. That karma has already begun to come after you, thus it cannot be stopped. There are only four ways to remove prarabdha, 1. Absolute Self-Knowledge (Jnana) 2. Absolute self-surrender (Atma Nivedanam) 3. Total eradication of selfishnesss (Variagya) or 4. Grace of God or Guru or another Saint who will take upon Himself your prarabdha. All the best.
