They say destiny cannot be changed,it can only be delayed, right?...Now the question is..if someone dies a poor man,or dies through an accident...does that mean that was his/her destiny?...Your opinion and contributions are highly welcomed.

Isn't reaping what you sow the opposite of destiny, which implies the outcome has already been decided for you before you could choose an action?
Karma is neither good nor bad. The farmer tills the soil, plants the seeds, gets the right rain, compost, sunlight ... and have a bumper harvest (Karma). We are the sum total of our Karma. Some call this destiny or fate.
I understand karma is neither good nor bad. I just don't think of it as equivalent to our destiny being determined for us. Karma seems more about the results of our actions rather than destiny. But I guess it depends on how you define destiny.
Fate or Destiny is the sum total of where we are, reaping what we have sown from this life and past lives. (Prarabda Karma).Accumulated acts, both from past and present, but not yet sown. (Sanchita Karma) Generally the Eastern term is more precise.
Yes...yes... Nothing is fixed. This is a transcending world and God is most certainly not static!.. The Creator is not bound by His plans.
Thanks Victor. As an afterthought. We have no 'free will.' What we have is 'limited freedom.' God pulls us back when we have gone too far. All the God-men that I respect say this.
