Meaning of Birthday
Dr KK Aggarwal
A birthday is the day when we should file our Vedic returns of all that we have done, good and bad, in the last one year.
All of us are born with both Sanchit Karma and Prarabdha Karmas. Prarabdha Karma are the part of sanchit karma, a collection of past karmas, which are ready to be experienced through the present body in this lifetime. We have to bear the fruits of Prarabdha Karmas, while Sanchit Karmas can be negated with our positive Karmas, both present and future.
On this day, we must also make a balance sheet of our three debts and pay them if not paid by this time. There are three types of rins (debts): Dev Rin, Pitra Rin and Rishi Rin. God or the devtas gave us the consciousness, parents gave us our body and teachers gave us the knowledge or intellect.
I file my Vedic returns at 6 pm, the time of my birth, every year on my birthday.
Do good karmas to keep the balance in the positive. Do good karmas for a good life!
