Samskara is a concept that all beings have past impressions resulting from previous lives and/or experiences that judges or guides one’s present actions, shapes one’s personality, and directs one’s life.
There are three types of Samskaras. Inborn, imposed, and acquired. Inborn are samskaras carried from one's past life (lives) and into the present life. Imposed are samskaras that are brought upon through a young age from one's parents and surroundings. Acquired samskaras are created from experiences and actions taken by one through out his/her life.
Samskara is the driving force of this Time-space reality, and everyone subject to this realm.
