वपुषश्च पोषकं किं ?
चान्नदायि किं ?
What is the sustainer of the body?
Prarabdham (a collection of past actions, which are ready to be experienced through the present body)
What bestows food?
Life span. (Though we generally believe that we are living because of the food we eat, the food we eat gets digested and gives us energy only till our life span which is fixed by our Prarabdham)
What is Prarabdha Karma? How does it interfere in one's life?
Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:
Everything in one's life happens because of Prarabdha Karma and nothing else. So it is not a question of interference in one's life, it is that which drives one's life.

மனதிற்கு ப்ராரப்தம் உண்டா?
மஹாரண்யம் ஸ்ரீ ஸ்ரீ முரளீதர ஸ்வாமிஜி :
சரீர சம்பந்தமான விஷயங்களுக்குத்தான் ப்ராரப்தம் உண்டே தவிர, மனதிற்கு ப்ராரப்தம் கிடையாது. மனதை அடக்குவது விவேகிகளான நம் கையில் தான் உள்ளது.
Whether our Mind is bound by Prarabdham (a collection of past actions, which are ready to be experienced) ?
Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Only the actions that are related to our body is bound by Prarabdham. There is no Prarabdham for mind. As a prudent person, it is only in our hands to control the mind.

When one is afflicted with sorrow, if he persists in prayers and not question the Lord as to why He is putting him into grief, when the difficult times pass, the Lord is pleased and rewards him with a special gift of His grace.
