A. It resides where this question is from. Where was this question prior to being asked by you in this way? If you can know where it was, you can know where the karmic force resides because not only asking this question but also reading this answer is the karmic force.
Only when you are aware of where the karmic force is can you escape from it since the reason why we cannot escape from it is that we don’t know what it is and where it is. To realise where the karmic force is, is enlightenment because seeing what the karmic force is, is seeing the true-Self, since the karmic force is also the function of the true-Self. In conclusion, the way to escape from the karmic force is to attain enlightenment.
Student: “Where does the karmic force reside?”
