From a WhatsApp message,
"A dharma adhering king conducted a Yagna. A big feast was prepared. At the end of the Yagna offerings were made to the Lord Yagna Narayana( who is sacrifice himself) and the whole city was invited for Lunch in the open courtyard. Food was served by the chefs who carried large open vessels containing tasty food to the courtyard from the kitchen. At the same time an eagle was flying over with a poisonous snake on it's claws. Eagle were attacked by couple of crows. In it's stress the Eagle dropped the snake which fell into one of the open vessel filled with food. Chefs not noticing this served the poison filled food to some people and many died."
Is there any scriptural reference in Hinduism as to how to assign Karma in such situations? Like Nyaya shastras. This is also a question for readers who can answer this specific question with Nyaya Shastra reasonings. Don't be quick to mark this as opinion inducing question. Wasn't Hinduism always about reasoning in Brahman's perspective? With all the touts of Karma being the root in the Geetha, we must be able to "apply" with all our knowledge of Geetha to solve this elementary situation correct? Who is held responsible and why?
