Fatalism: the belief that what will happen has already been decided and cannot be changed.

Is it like: Therefore get up and prepare to fight. After conquering your enemies you will enjoy a flourishing kingdom. They are already put to death by My arrangement, and you, O Savyasaci, can be but an instrument in the fight.?
