    Do you believe in Karma?

    If yes, what is your definition of it?

    Karma is something I do believe in and teach.  Not so much the phrase Karma, but what it encompasses under Universal Law.  Energy/actions sent out creates a return flow of energy/actions of like nature.  Good attracting good and bad attracting bad. That is a short summary. smile

    Everything in this world is based on Karma and Merits. It is a cycle of life.

    What we do, will have the result in return. Therefore, it is relating to Karma and its effects.

    Here is an article about the Karma:

    No, but I believe in the Law of the Harvest: As a man sows, so shall he reap.

    I believe in Karma with all my soul. I have lived the effects of negative as well as positive Karma for years. Karma is just another term for "treating others the way you'd wish to be treated." Or, "You get what you give". All the same thing.

    I have experiences from my own life. Every time anybody did anything bad to me, even though I didn't try taking any revenge they were punished somehow. And for every good that I did, I was rewarded later on. For me, there was no reason not to believe in karma :-)

    Karma or Christian faith ... yes it is true that 'what goes around comes around or 'the head of the snake will turn around and bite you in the butt.' I've lived a fairly long time and I've seen it over and over again where a person does wrong and never learns from their mistakes or they continue to hurt others will certainly get bitten sooner or later. Most people know right from wrong and if they do wrong sooner or later it will come back to harm them. If one gives off good Karma then they will receive the good back.

    ya somehow  i believe in karma as according to me all sort of things or work Good or bad  we do in life will paid to us earlier or later or will be paid in future  likewise hard work always pays. All we do adds up to our karma & we are accordingly paid with the deeds (good or bad).

    Certainly. What you did to others has a corresponding effect or return to you. If you do good, something good will return to you and if you did bad, bad karma will be the return to you.

    Yes, I believe that what we put out comes back to us. Or like the Bible says, what we reap we will sew, and the Universal Law as being, what comes around, goes around.  I believe that all have the similar meaning and the word Karma is the result of all of them.  I have also seen it in my life.

    I definitely believe in it and follow too because my parents taught me so. Still, one thing always disturbs me at present and that is whenever I see around me I feel those who are wrong are the happiest lot. Why so?

    Karma is all about law of cause and effect. There is always a reason behind every happening. And on this principle we are the creators of our own destiny. But there are certain misconception on Law of karma - My hub can be referred to for getting into more details:- … n-Hinduism

    Karma is definitely something that I believe in and live by each and every day. I basically see it as "what goes around comes around".  I believe that it has helped me be more understanding and tolerant of others actions.  I have tried to instill this belief in my children, however I'm not sure that I have been successful.  I think that it is a belief that you have to come to accept in your own way, at your own pace.

    I do believe in Karma, not just because I was taugh to believe in Karma.  I always thought from early in life that I had lived in some form or fashion before.  If a person believs in the soul and it is eternal then it would make more sense to me that we have lived previous lives as different entities.

    Best wishes

    I do not necesarily believe in karma, but I think it does not matter. You should treat others as you would like to be treated. Then maybe, good things will come back to you but that is not the point. I do not think you should do good things expecting goods things in return. Just do goods things to do good things.

    For me, the law of karma is "as you sow, so shall you reap," and I do believe in it.

    But it is not about what happens in time. It is a reality in our life right now. We weaken ourselves when we attack ourselves or others; we grow in Love when we extend Love to others.

    nope, not in the slightest. 
    I've seen individuals who did nothing but harm others throughout their lives, and no suffering ever came to them.

      This is what I wanted to know through my answer to this question. I believe in karma because my parents taught me plus my own attitude that I won't harm others whatsoever comes. But, I notice that people are happy after wrongdoing then what's karma.

    Jesus Christ, in essence, said, "Do unto others as you would have done to you." Te bottom line is you get what you give. The idea of co-called Karma is just a knock off of a Biblical principle.

    Yes I totally believe in karma, If you do good on to others and don't expect anything in return, usually life works it way out for you. If you do bad on to others, it eventually comes back on you some how, you might not see it right away, but it eventually does.

    Absolutely. I believe 100% that karma exists. Whatever you put out into the world, whether you do good - or whether you do bad, does eventually come back to you. I've seen this happen in different ways, with different people and I've experienced it myself.
