How to interpret Free will and Karma?

Shri Divakar asked: How to interpret Free will and Karma. Are these interrelated anywhere in the life of an individual? Your Servant, Divakar

Swami replied:- Whenever you do an action, you have the freedom to do it in one way or to do it in other ways or not to do it at all. Such freedom existing in the case of good and bad deeds is called free will. The decision in the action is based on the analysis done by your intelligence. In some cases, you have freedom and, in some cases, you have no freedom in doing or not doing an action. In such cases, free will and action have no relationship.
