|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 6: Mahārāja Parīkṣit Passes Away|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.6.26
pañcatvam ṛcchate jantur
bhuńkta ārabdha-karma tat
sarpa — from snakes; caura — thieves; agni — fire; vidyudbhyaḥ — and lightning; kṣut — from hunger; tṛṭ — thirst; vyādhi — disease; ādibhiḥ — and other agents; nṛpa — O King; pañcatvam — death; ṛcchate — obtains; jantuḥ — the conditioned living entity; bhuńkte — he enjoys; ārabdha — already created by his past work; karma — the fruitive reaction; tat — that.
When a conditioned soul is killed by snakes, thieves, fire, lightning, hunger, disease or anything else, he is experiencing the reaction to his own past work.
According to Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura, King Parīkṣit obviously was not suffering the reaction of past karma. As a great devotee he was personally brought back home, back to Godhead, by the Lord.
