The entire reasoning of this book is based on the transmigration of the soul.

Life has its own unique pattern. This uniqueness stems from the fact that this pattern is woven out of one design but its manifestation creates several designs. Similarly, life too originates from one focal points but its expression is seen in a wide variety of dissimilar situation and personalities. The cause for wonder is this truth that despite being intrinsically the same, extrinsically no two persons are the same.
The discrepancy is apparent in life. Some are endowed with great physical beauty while some bear the cross of being plain. Many are born with a deficient sense organ whilst others may be blessed with heightened ones. It is a matter of great amazement when minimal efforts reap rich rewards and maximum one lead to naught! Several People are seen showcasing every emotion they feel and yet there are those who do not disclose any emotion. Adverse situation are faced with fortitude by some while most succumb to pressure.
To the thinker these obvious differences are a cause for mystery. It makes one stop to think and question the reasons for this strangeness in life. It is a subject of the meta physical world as the real world has no answers world as the real has no answers to offer. The answers may found in the world karma which simply translated means action activity and has its root in the law of cause and effect. This proves that everything happens for a reason.

Thus these explanations do not complement the reasons for discrepancies in life, simply because they fail to recognize the effort of man which is the vital reason for anything that happens in life.
All karmic activity begins with the inception of the worldly soul. This soul inhabits all forms of life. In fact this entire world is a representation of karma. All forms of life can attain rest and subsequent peace only when this worldly soul terminates all activity thereby achieving a state of bliss. Thus karma is that tool which despite being responsible for the journey of life can also lead to freedom from the bondage of life.
Karma represents the law of causality which expounds the theory that every action must have a reaction. This action is that which is committed by man and therefore the consequences too must be borne by man. It rests on an to commit those actions which will eventually prove to be peaceful for him. The final aim of life is to free ourselves state of being which allows us joy. It can thus be said that a soul which is saturated with karma is the starting point of life and the soul that is free of karma is the resting point of life. The former suggests struggle and the latter, peace.
