Gurudev, if everything is already written then where does karma come into play?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

You are saying that everything is written, but it is not like that.
Some things are destiny, and some free will.

For example, it is raining, that is destiny. To get wet or not is your free will; that is your choice. If you take an umbrella, you will not get wet. If you go just like that, you will get wet.
So everything is not predetermined, you have some freedom as well.
