Questions on World Drama and How the role (part in Drama) of souls are decided? Is our life presdestined? Here is the accurate answer with a special ''Shrimat Audio Response'' in video version.
Original Question/Email Received
1. We have been listening to Baba’s Murlis on a regular basis. One point that is often highlighted in the murlis is that “The whole drama, of which we are a part, is pre planned and lawful. It is a cycle that repeats itself every 5000 years.” Baba often says that “Kalp pehle jo hua tha wahi hoga, Kalp pehle jinhone purusharth kiya tha wahi aage bhi karenge.”
It has also been said in the murlis that every soul has got a role to play in the drama and by doing purusharth one can get rid of the patit nature and could attain liberation. But these two ideas appear to be contradictory. If the role of a soul is already determined then where does the law of karma/voluntary actions (that we choose to perform) come into play?
For instance, Duryodhana had got the most important role to play in Mahabharata. And if he hadn’t performed those evil actions, it would not have led the Pandavas realize their potential and Arjuna to reveal Gita. But what about Duryodhana’s opportunity to get liberation? He never had a choice because he was already assigned this role according to the worldly drama, so can we say that he was bound to perform those evil actions according to his role? And if it is so then where did his own choice lie?
It is mentioned in murli that the drama is predestined and that every second is identical to the previous cycle. Then what is the significance of doing good karma if the future is already decided upon? Also who has decided the predestined drama?
Please clarify our doubt.

As explained in that Shrimat Audio response, the future is NOT predestined. The part is predestined. Think with your intellect (buddhi). How can God, who is so great to make this world this beautiful can create a Drama in which souls have no option? !
Definitely, there is an option whenever you do a Karma. Firstly - option to whether to DO or to NOT TO DO that karma. God has gifted us with intellect (buddhi) to decide what is right and wrong. So the future will depend on the present karma.
If you have already done a karma, the consequence is now destined. You must and will definitely get the fruit of THAT karma which is already done. This is a law. Every soul gets the fruit of its own past karma. It is not that the future is predestined. Also, the new soul (who just came from the supreme abode) cannot do any wrong karma as it is pure, and thus will only experience happiness in this world. But as the soul continue in this body or take another birth, little by little the soul becomes impure and thus as a result does inaccurate Karma and thus encounter sorrow.
I hope the answer is now very clear.
It is simple. Just open the gates of mind and it is as simple to understand life.
* The Role of GOD *
The role of God is to awaken the souls from ignorance and save them from sorrow, from the old world. For this, he is called - 'Liberator'. God is a helper of all souls, to decide and take ''better'' decisions and thereby enjoy better consequences (fruit of karma). This is beautiful.
Many believe that God interferes in everything. In your life, in your family, in world. But no. God is aloof. He does not participate in the corporeal world at all. He is 'incorporeal'. His role is subtle, hidden from your eyes. That is why we have this feeling of connection with God and we remember and pray him when in need. God is there in need and disappear in completeness (fulfilment).
This is a great secret just revealed to you. Because you were searching. Those who search, will get.
Here is the special Shrimat Audio response in response to your email letter. In essence:
''Drama is word given by Shiv baba not to stop you from doing Purusharth. but to encourage. Because you have done this 5000 years ago. You have become victorious over Maya (5 vices) a cycle ago and now also with your Purusharth you will definitely become victorious, take the inheritance from the Father and come in the new world (Heaven).''
