The 13th Moon phase is called Pradosham, a karma-removing time. When Pradosham occurs on a Tuesday it is known as Runa Vimochana Pradosham. It has the special quality of dissolving negative debt karma.
Negative financial karma can result in the strain of debts. When you get rid of the stress of debts, you clear a path for prosperity in your life. As your mind and body are purged of the draining energies that are creating suffering for you, positive energies can rush into the channels of your mind and body as you invoke them.
The rituals of Runa Vimochana Pradosham bring grace that clears your life of negative debt karmas. The debt-clearing, benevolent energies released during Runa Vimochana Pradosham can clean up a financial mess and help you find a positive way forward.
Runa Vimochana Pradosham is a special day on which the energies of this day are aligned in such a way that one who does the specific mantras and prayers gets freed from their debts of life.
“Runa” in Sanskrit means “debt.” “Vimochana” means “to free from.” Vedic wisdom emphasizes that we are born on this planet to reap the fruits of our actions. Hence, Earth is referred to as Karma Bhoomi, or the planet of action. The nature of our actions decides if they will yield good or bad results.
It is not practically possible to do actions that will give only good results to
everyone, but we can deliberately avoid harmful activities, reduce selfish activities,
and increase selfless activities.
Scriptures mention that the benchmark of any activity is not to do anything that you will not want others to do to you. This self-analysis during any action will prevent selfish and harmful activities, thus reducing our individual karma baggage.
We are all indebted to our parents, society, environment, etc. Whatever has been taken should be given back. This is the law of the universe. Following are the debts that we incur by being born on Earth and that need repayment.
We are made of the gross as well as subtle elements. Our body is the result of the accumulation of food from the earth, the heat and light from the sun, the air, and the water, all taken from the nature.
