Meaning of Karma

What is Karma:

Karma means action or transcendent energy that is derived from the acts, words and thoughts of people.

Karma is a Sanskrit word and is used in the Buddhist, Hindu and Jain religions, later adopted also in spiritualism.

In physics, the word is equivalent to the law: “For every action there is an equivalent force reaction in the opposite direction.”

Karma reminds the human being that for every action an individual performs there will be a reaction. Depending on the religion, the meaning of the word can have connotations of specific actions and different consequences, but it usually relates to the action and its consequences.

In Buddhism, karma is used to show the importance of developing the right attitudes and intentions, since karma pays back bad actions by obeying dharma translated as Divine Law, which pays back good ones.

See also Dharma.

The Law of Karma is that law that adjusts the effect to its cause, that is, everything good or bad that we have done in life will bring us good or bad consequences in this life or in the following ones.

The Law of Karma is known in various religions as “divine justice” and is immutable. It is always accompanied by the “divine law” called Dharma that balances good and bad actions and consequences.
