In conclusion we note that:
1. The Karma body and the tejas body are
electromagnetic in nature. The Karma body is made up of coherent
electromagnetic magnetic field and the tejas body is in the form
of energy bodies. The tejas body also contains Nadis and Chakras
when the person is alive and physical body exists
2. The Karma are stored in the form of light
structure in the Karma body The Karma remain in the passive mode for a
long period of time and during this period they do not affect the
working of the physical body and tejas body.
3. When the Karma become active they control and
regulate the body functions mainly in two broad ways.
a. The ghatin Karma control our feelings
through lesyas in the tejas body. The feelings regulate
hormone secretions from the endocrine glands which control the body
functions. The ghatin Karma also control the mind and the nervous
b. The aghatin Karma operate at the level of
genes and DNA. The genes contain the necessary codes for making
different types of proteins and cells which can constitute bodies for
all species. The working of DNA is supposed to be controlled by light
photons emitted by the coherent magnetic field of Naam Karma in the
Karma body. Under the effect of feeling producing Karma these light
photons can also produce faulty genes which cause disease of various
kinds. The division of cells and hence the age of an organism is also
controlled by Karma. There is evidence that ghatin Karma may also
influence the working of genes.
4. The ultimate source of intelligence and knowledge
is the soul. It is the power of the soul which can perform the feats
a. Control and regulate millions of chemical and
biological activities in a cell per second in all the trillions of cells
at a time.
b. Establish correlations between all the cells for a
purposeful and meaningful functioning of the body.
c. Maintain a liason and harmony with other
organisms, the environment and with the cosmos at large through the
powerful magnetic fields.
It is interesting to repeat here the following
"........... There observations, among others, suggest
control within the living state that is non-local and possibly
electromagnetic in nature. Many significant correlation between features
of the weak biological process, such as cell division, death, and major
shifts in metabolism, exist. These correlations may indicate that the
light (electromagnetic field of the organism) is a sensitive, global
expression of biological regulating processes. Biological process may be
integrated by the endogenous bio electromagnetic field that has a primary
organizational and informational role."
In this book we have briefly dealt with essentials of
the Doctrine of Karma, that is required to understand the mechanism behind
its operation, the scientific findings relevant to this doctrine and have
attempted to eastablish a relationship between the two different schools
of thoughts and have seen that the two streams of knowledge not only
support each other but also enhance our understanding of the subtle
secrets of life which are guiding and governing our behaviour physically,
mentally and emotionally. The science offer no contradictions with the
religious themes but rather strengthen our belief in the fundamental laws
of life enunciated by the omniscient. These findings, I hope, would deepen
our faith in the truth seeking path shown by Arihantas. This is
particularly significant for those who do not believe in the existence of
soul. Irrespective of his point of view or belief the law of nature is
working in every individual and guiding his destiny. Those who wish to
know more about the realities of nature, as pronounced by Arihantas, are
reffered to other canonical texts on Jainism.
Lastly, we end with the hearty remark that the Jaina
doctrine "What you sow is what you reap" is perfectly scientific and true.
