What is Karma

karma

(tib: las; skrt: karma) Karma literally means “action,” but more broadly refers to the law of cause and effect. Any action taken physically, verbally, or mentally, serves as a “seed” that will bear the “fruit” of its consequences in the future when the conditions are right for its realization. Positive actions have positive effects, such as happiness; negative actions have negative effects, such as unhappiness. Karma does not mean that life is determined, but that conditions arise out of past actions. – Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
