It is not necessary that the we will have to wait till the next life. But it takes time. And, mostly, the time taken is greater than one lifetime. This can be understood if we visualize our Karmas in the form of tree that bears fruits. Lord Shiva says the following: DAridrya-dukkha-rogAshcha vandhana-vyAsanAni cha | AtmAparAdha-vrikshasya phalAn-yetAni ...

Your question is very difficult , i will try to answer as i can. First , it cannot be an unilateral vision, whatever happened . Karma is produced by everybody , everyday. The bondage of an individual self consists in the limitation of its powers of knowledge and action. It is called “Svarupakhyati” because is due to the individual ignorance of the real ...
