Your thoughts lead to deeds which in turn change to habits and ultimately your character is formed. One of the greatest things any of us can do in life is that we can do a good deed for another human being. By offering your love and compassion you can bring sunshine into the lives of others.
The tree of good deeds gives happiness and contentment as its fruits. You can water this good deeds tree by nurturing it with generosity, politeness, courtesy, commitment to helping everyone.
When we wish good for others, good things come back to us this is the law of nature. It is rightly said, “Good deeds should be done with attention, not for attention”. Mythology has also always emphasized on Law of Karma. Our every thought, word, action and energy we radiate forms our karma.
Our karmas are accumulated in books of karmic accounts of each lifetime and are also carry forward to our next birth. In Hindi, we call this carry forward of karmas as Prarabdh.
If all the karmic accounts are settled we get salvation and freedom from reincarnations and if it is carry forwarded continuous cycle of reincarnations take place.
Never compare with anyone because each one of us has different karmic accounts which influence our destiny. Whether its studies or business our skills and resources are input parameters while our karmic accounts are hidden factor which determines our success.
If we have good karmic accounts we get success and prosperity easily and if karmic accounts are not good then we have to struggle in every phase of our lives. We should always do good deeds and radiate positive energy so that our karmic accounts get settled and soul is set free from cycles of rebirths.
One of the famous old adage” As you sow, shall you reap “signifies that what we receive is the outcome of what we give. If we plant seeds of happiness and for others then we also get joy and happiness.

Here is an interesting short story about the consistent good deed of a woman. Once upon a time, a woman cooked chapatti for members of her family and an extra one for a hungry passer-by. She kept the extra chapatti on the window sill, for whosoever will pass by would take it away. Every day, a hunchback came and took away the chapatti. Instead of expressing gratitude, he murmured the following words as he went his way: The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!
This went on, day after day. Every day, the hunchback came, picked up the chapatti and muttered the words, the evil you do remains with you, the good you do comes back to you! The woman felt irritated. Not a word of gratitude, she said to herself.
Everyday this hunchback utters this jingle! What does he mean? One day, exasperated, she decided to do away with him. I shall get rid of this hunchback, she said. And what did she do? She added poison to the chapatti she prepared for him!
As she was about to keep it on the window sill, her hands trembled. What is this I am doing? She said. Immediately, she threw the chapatti into the fire, prepared another one and kept it on the window sill. As usual, the hunchback came, picked up the chapatti and muttered the words: the evil you do remains with you, the good you do comes back to you! The hunchback proceeded on his way, blissfully unaware of the war raging in the mind of the woman.
Every day, as the woman placed the chapatti on the window sill, she offered a prayer for her son who had gone to a distant place to seek his fortune. For many months, she had no news of him. She prayed for his safe return. That evening, there was a knock on the door. As she opened it, she was surprised to find her son standing in the doorway.
He had grown thin and lean. His garments were shabby and torn. He was hungry and weak. As he saw his mother, he said, mom, it’s a miracle I’m here. While I was but a mile away, I was so famished that I collapsed. I would have died, but just then an old hunchback passed by. I begged of him for a morsel of food, and he was kind enough to give me a whole chapatti. He gave it to me, he said, this is what I eat everyday: today, I shall give it to you, for your need is greater than mine!
As the mother heard those words, her face turned pale. She leaned against the door for support. She remembered the poisoned chapatti that she had made that morning. Had she not burnt it in the fire, it would have been eaten by her own son, and he would have lost his life! It was then that she realized the significance of the words: The evil you do remains with you, the good you do comes back to you! Do well and don’t ever stop doing well, even if it is not appreciated at that time. There will be a great reward for any good deed you do consistently. Good deeds fill the treasure of happiness with lustre.
