Background: There is a wide spread belief in our society that only genes play a significant role in shaping men's behavior and illness he inherits from his parents. Aim: This study aims to determine the role of man's karma, his thoughts and position of planets on expression of genes and level of neurotransmitters. Materials and Methods: A review of various Indian literatures was done and was compared with various scientific studies regarding genes expression. Results: The result shows that men's behavior and destiny are affected by many factors such as genes, environment, karma, thoughts, and planets. The role played by men's karma in shaping his behavior, is not less than the role played by the genes he has inherited from his parents. Conclusion: The scripts written in deoxyribonucleic acid may have a major say in shaping men's behavior and illness he develops, but the environment, thoughts and karma, also play an important role in this matter. Genes build neural structures and proteins not behavior. We are not the helpless flotsam caught in a fiery flood called life, but the architect of our own destiny.
