One meaning of Karma which is popularly accepted is that it is one's destiny or fate, the inescapable 'writing' on the brow, which has to work itself out. There is no escaping it. But, people forget that it is not written by some other hand. It is all written by one's own hand. And the hand that wrote it can also wipe it off. The husk, with which the paddy is born, can be removed by effort; the maya which persuaded you to write all that destiny can be conquered in an instant and then, the entire page can be wiped away.
