"it's your karma"

it's your kar-ma
by swami beynodananda


swami's mother: "oh, swami. ..why does this always happen to me?"

swami: "what is it, mom?"

swami's mother: "swami...'s my old chevy wagon... it's dented and it rattles. ..the tires are bald, the brakes squeak, and paint is chipping off of the hood. leaks oil, and there's a crack in the windshield. ..the driver's-side seat is worn and uncomfortable, and the radio only tunes-in to the frequencies that i don't like!"
"why is all of this happening to me, swami, why?"

swami: "uh, well... it's your car, ma."
