Nature of Bondage

Similarly the intensity of a karmic bondage also depends upon the nature and character of the Karmas. If a karma is done with great intensity, in other words if ‘Bhava-karma prompting an action is strong, the bondage, good or bad, would be equally intense and strong. A man can use his knife to commit murder as also to perform a surgical operation to cure a living creature, and accidentally causes death. Both may be responsible to cause death but while one wanted to kill, the other wanted to save. Thus the ‘Bhava' or intention of both was entirely different and hence the bondage would also be different.
