The law of karma governs the universe and all beings within it; it acts impersonally and
binds each atman (inner Self) to the world and in addition to the cycle of
transmigration. The law of karma acts impersonally, yet we may meaningfully interpret
its results as either positive (punya) or negative (papa) — terms describing actions
leading the Self either toward or away from the spiritual goal. Karma is further graded
as: white (shukla), black (krishna), mixed (shukla-krishna) or neither white nor black
(ashukla-akrishna). The latter term describes the karma of the jnani, who, as Rishi
Patanjali says, is established in kaivalya, freedom from prakriti through realization of
the Self. Similarly, one's karma must be in a condition of ashukla-akrishna, quiescent
balance, in order for liberation to be attained. This equivalence of karma is called
karmasamya, and is a factor that brings malaparipaka, or maturity of anava ... Read more »

karma, we have to understand the sublime synthesis of pre-destination and free will.
Both aspects exist simultaneously. To conceive of this apparently inconceivable reality,
we have to consider both sides of the law of karma: the point of view of action, and the
point of view of reaction.
The free will is excersized in Kriyamana karma and Agama karma . In terms of prarabha ,
it’s clear that one has no choice about whether to allow prarabha or not, because the
reaction has started, and it is going to have to work itself out. Yet, we are free to
choose what we’ll receive, but what we ... Read more »

*** Kala (Time)***
main philosophical subject matter of the Bhagavad-gita is the explanation of five basic concepts or truths:

kâla or kaala ( Sanskrit : "Time"), is the word for Time as the source of all things. The
absolute undivided time or duration, and of manifested or divided time: the former as
causal or noumenal, the latter as effectual or phenomenal, and therefore mayavi
(illusional). kâla is an illusion produced by the succession of our states of
consciousness as we travel through eternal duration, and it does not exist where no
consciousness exists in which the illusion can be produced; but 'lies asleep'.
