Everyone is bound by one’s accumulated account and destiny.


Lakshman tells the boatman named Guha ferrying Rama across the river,

सुखस्य दु:खस्य न कोऽपि दाता परो ददाति इति कुबुद्धिरेषा ।
अहं करोमि इति वृथाभिमान: स्वकर्मसूत्रै: ग्रथितोऽहि लोक: ।। – अध्यात्मरामायण
Meaning : No one can give one happiness or unhappiness. Only the ignorant feel they have acquired happiness or unhappiness because of someone else. Similarly, thinking that one will achieve happiness or get rid of suffering with one’s own efforts is vanity as finally one is bound by one’s accumulated account and destiny.
