Karma the basics.
Karma is one of those words that people think needs no translation. The basic meaning of the word Karma is - Action. Now this is pretty simple but unfortunately the concept of Karma has been taken completely out of context.
As the word Karma became more widely used so did the misunderstanding surrounding the meaning.
Karma - Action - itself is considered neither good nor bad, but only the intention and thought make it so.
Principle Of Cause and Effect.
As one sows, so shall one reap.
If you want to know the causes in your past life,
The way you live at present is the effect of your past life.
If you want to know what your future life will be,
What you do at present is the cause of your future life.
The Law of Karma is an important application of the Principle of Cause and Effect in morality.
