Karmas Role In Hinduism For The Self And The society

By Promod Puri

In creating divine residency in our intellect and consciousness, Hinduism offers a humanistic and enlightened walk paved with disciplined and ethical karmas.

Seeking the divine spirit is a spiritual pursuit. Within that pursuit are the divinity’s social aspects that accentuate or underline moral and compassionate behaviour in the Hindu mind.

Divinity relates to all of God’s outlooks understood as heavenly, angelic, and virtuous. But in social divinity, these expressions have attributes of humankind about the ethical behaviour that leads to ultimate fulfillment and purity of life.

The praxis or acts related to social divinity go beyond and separate from rituals, customs, and beliefs.

In the realm of social divinity, the cardinal Hindu theology is the induction of God in our deliberations and consequential or related deeds.

Hinduism encourages spiritual believability based on knowledge, inference, and sanity. In these essentials, the divine spirit finds an accompanying and regulatory participation in every moment of life.

In creating divine residency in our intellect and consciousness, Hinduism offers a humanistic and enlightened walk paved with disciplined and ethical karmas.

Karmas purity lies in that these are not biased or impacted by rituals, customs, and beliefs.

What matters most is to let the Hindu epistemology, meaning rationality in thinking and action, influence and guide our karmas. When the rationale or inference gets established in all its sincerity, karma develops into prayer.

For a practicing Hindu, Karma is dharma.

Accumulation of good karmas from earnest deeds over a long period can lead to moksha. It is a stage when material satisfactions are not attractions anymore. Instead, in the austere and ascetic life, transcendental consciousness develops toward oneness with the Supreme-being.


The execution of an individual’s Karma in Hindu philosophy also influences or has a consequence on society. 

For that reason, societal reconstruction is part of karmas’ obligations towards the religion.

In this role, our Karmas must be engaged to clean up the faith from discriminatory and inhumane practices. All-inclusive full empowerment of women and annihilation of castes as envisioned by Ambedkar is part of the needed corrections to institute human rights traditions in Hinduism.


Moreover, whereas religion’s genesis and role have been the management of society, karma’s religiosity implies the self’s administration. The governance of the self gets conducted by conscious and divine living. It is a significant commitment indicating Hinduism is a way of life.

From rituals to murti-puja, mantra and metaphysics, karma and moksha, meditation, and yoga, and all its recreational aspects like music, dance and drama, Hinduism in its management is a disciplinary as well as a comprehensive experience of spiritual development in the liberal and progressive regime.
