Part 5: Bhagavad-gita on Destiny

by Acharya das

What is my destiny? Is it controlled by the stars? Is it divinely ordained? Or is it simply an arbitrary course of events? Furthermore, is destiny set in stone; a fixed series of events that are inevitable and unchangeable, or do we play a role in determining our future and can we change our destiny? In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna examines the natural laws that determine destiny and, furthermore, uncovers the keys that allow each person to break free from fate and set their personal course for freedom.
