"not dependant on chance, not dependant on the gods"

Fatalism is the acceptance of all things and events as inevitable; submission to fate is the attitude of resignation in the face of some future event or events considered as inevitable. Philosophers and ancient Indian religious texts, reject the view that all acts are preordaineed by the gods, and human beings are powerless in the face of destiny.

In Indian beliefs, the karmic effects of all deeds actively shape the past, present, and future experiences. The results or 'fruits' of actions are called karma-phala. Karma,  the total of present—and past—life actions, as a concept contradicts the notion of faith, and the supremacy of the will of God, as advocated in the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam).
