According to the Hindu tradition, Karma is the law of cause and effect. The translation from the ancient Indian Sanskrit means “action.”
Karma is the fuel for human development, the option to recognize the principle of polarity and to understand it. Karma is not a bad thing. Instead, it is the learning material for this life.
The term “action” indicates that the human being is not meant to be static, though instead must be active. This allows for mastery of what challenges an individual within this life, and allows the individual to overcome and diminish “karma.”
