Karma is a concept from Indian religions, particularly Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, that refers to the idea that a person’s actions have consequences, both in the current life and in future lives. The word “karma” comes from the Sanskrit language and means “action” or “deed.”
According to the concept of karma, every action a person takes, whether it is physical, mental, or verbal, has a consequence, which can be positive or negative. These consequences can manifest in the present life or in future lives, depending on the belief system. Karma is believed to shape a person’s life circumstances, including their health, wealth, and social status.
In general, the concept of karma teaches that individuals should strive to perform good actions and avoid harmful ones, in order to create positive consequences for themselves and for others. Some people believe that by accumulating good karma through virtuous actions, they can improve their prospects for future lives or achieve spiritual liberation.
