Karma stands at the core of Eastern religions including Buddhism and Hinduism. Karma is the sum of the actions of a human being throughout their various lives. Every action is a cause triggering a consequence that becomes a cause and so on and so forth. Life is a constant flow of actions chained together. Positive actions will yield positive consequences while negative actions will yield negative ones. With reincarnation in mind, the overall quality of your next life is based upon your current life’s karma.
