It is being said that if one follows the dharma and do the right things , then he will be protected against any mishappening in life.
But It is also said that we have to bear fruits of our karma of previous lives also .
Then how does this makes sense ? If I am doing the right things , then I am protected against bad happenings in life , but I also have to bear the fruits of my previous lives. Isn't it contradictory ?
