What would you like to do?
Does karma exist?
When you have cleared all yourkarmic debts and attained salvation.
Not really. Karma is a human construct based on our story telling compulsion.
The idea behind Karma is that you get what you receive. This means that if you do something good for somebody else, something good will happen to you in return, and the same f…or if you do something bad. The idea is to encourage people into doing many good deeds.
Karma is when what happens to you is seen as the result of your actions. So for example, if you do bad things, then bad things will happen to you and vice versa. This applies …to this life and the afterlife. It is one of the ways of reaching Brahman. KARMA IN HINDUISM: Karma is defined as the force generated by our deeds that causes unending cycles of reincarnation. Karma enables us to attain Moksha and become one with the supreme Hindu god Brahman. Moksha is defined as putting an end to unending cycles of reincarnation. However, these beliefs are of no practical use in attaining Moksha THE BRAHMAJNANA CONCEPT OF KARMA: To attain Moksha we must know the Brahmajnana concept of Karma. This is because our concept of Karma and Moksha are based on beliefs and Brahman is absolute fact. Our beliefs are not compatible with Brahman. SAGUNA BRAHMAN AND NIRGUNA BRAHMAN: Saguna Brahman is the force that facilitates activities and Nirguna Brahman is the force that brings them to rest. Therefore, for maximum efficiency they must never co exist and they must be of equal magnitude. In Karma, 1. Saguna and Nirguna elements co exist 2. They are of unequal magnitude 3. They keep varying continuously. To attain Moksha we must separate facilitating force and retarding force and ensure that they are of equal and constant in magnitude. FACTORS CAUSING UNINTENDED TRANSFORMATION OF ACTIVITIES/ GENERATION OF KARMA: 1. Unintentional change of mode of the action: The four modes are Brahmana, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra. 2. Unintentional change of basic forces (gods): The gods are Indra, Shakti, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Shani and Yama. In contrast to Hinduism, in Buddhism and Jainism there are no Varnas and gods. Thus, Buddhist and Jain concept of Karma is different. Karma literally means "deed or act," but more broadly describes the principle of cause and effect. Simply stated, karma is the law of action and reaction which governs consciousness. The doctrine of karma thus directs adherents of Hinduism toward their common goal: moksha from the cycle of birth and death. Karma thus serves two main functions within Hindu philosophy: it provides the major motivation to live a moral life, and it serves as the primary explanation of the existence of evil. This is simple. The meaning of karma is basically Hammurabi's law. Whatever you do will be done to you. Say, you make fun of an obese person. You will become obese and people will make fun of you. Another example, If i stole 300 dollars from someone, someone will steal 300 dollars or something worth that much from me. Basically if you do something bad to someone, it'll happen to you. Hope this helps! -? The proper wording for your question would be: What does karma mean in Hinduism? Karma basically means the same thing as it means in English It is the balance of good and bad deeds on someone's soul which can affect the fate of the person
Answer Karma is the universal force associated with human behavior that can be stated in common terminology as 'Whatever goes around, comes around." Moksha is th…e release of one's self from the cycle of death and reincarnation, a spiritual transcendence. Moshka, however, is the Russian word for a gnat or midge (small fly).
The law of Karma is something I strongly believe in and live by!What it means is: All you give out, comes back. If you do or saycruel, unfair, or selfish things....all that ne…gativity eventuallycomes back to you. Life is a great circle....karma is balance. Allactions (even the smallest of acts) have a reaction, and we ashumans need to learn to take a moment before we act to "think"about how our actions will effect others and our lives as awhole..... Ask yourself, "Is it worth it"? In Wiccan/Pagan law, the rule of Karma comes back to us not justonce but 3 times! Bottom line: If you want to be a happy, positiveperson and live a peaceful, fulfilling life.....DO ONLY GOOD! PS)Mistakes dont count! If you hurt someone accidentally the ruleof Karma doesnt apply. To add to what was said above, our thoughts are also considered asdeeds. Therefore, mistakes do not count because of the absence of"intent" or "will" coming from the source. So if you hurt someoneaccidentally or without any knowledge about it, the Law of Karmawill not apply.
Hinduism & Buddhism. The total effect of a person's actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person's existence, regarded as determining the person's destiny.…
Simply put, karma is where if you do something good for some person or creature and something good will happen to you in return. If you do something bad to someone or some cre…ature, something bad will happen to you in return. "Do unto other as you would have them do unto to you." The golden rule in Christianity. Same principle follows. What goes around comes around. If you live your life exercising kindness and compassion to all people and all creatures, something good will swing around your way. And vise versa. Another view I am presenting here an alternative theory of karma that I think is more logical and acceptable. According to the most widely believed karmic theory, a good action has a good result for an individual. This theory totally ignores psychological and sociological facts. We cannot take an individual in isolation and study him. The whole world is interconnected with each other including the individuals. This interconnectedness is karma. The individual is not an island unto himself; he is part of the whole and thus will be affected by the whole. Karma has both psychological and sociological implications. Suppose a person becomes a thief and is successful in his act, this will reinforce his samskaras or inherent negative tendencies and will encourage him to further wrong acts and in the process one day he will get caught and suffer for his actions. In the process, he has influenced both his psyche and the society by his actions. Envy, greed, hatred, impatience are feelings that denote disharmony in the mind and if you observe whenever you have taken a wrong decision, a wrong action, its always under the influence of these factors. Encouraging them causes psychological disturbances and this is your karma and you will fructify it. We have to understand that our actions affect others as much as they do to us. When we realize this, we can develop a lot more sensitivity towards our environment and do our best to keep it in perfect order. Everyone, directly or indirectly, contributes to the negative sociological circumstances, because society is formed of individuals and depends on how individuals behave. The advantage of this modified karmic theory is that this makes karma theory verifiable and dissolves the mystery around karma, making it understandable for anyone. In addition, it creates a stronger feeling of responsibility for our actions and increases our sensitivity towards our environment, towards the whole world and humanity. More input Karma is a highly misunderstood term. This is because it is based on logic and we use reasoning. Practically, this means that Karma enables us to improve all the activities of our life simultaneously. However, Since we are modern we try to improve one action at a time, through what we wish to call as good deeds. Karma is an adjective and not a Verb. Thus, it has nothing to do with deeds. CONVENTIONAL CONCEPT OF KARMA: Karma is supposed to be the entity that causes Reincarnation. Good deeds are supposed to result in a better next life and bad deeds a worse life. In Hinduism good deeds are supposed to result in a higher castes (Brahmins, Kshatriyas) KARMA - ACCORDING TO BRAHMAJNANA: Karma means fluctuations in facilitating/ retarding forces. This makes an activity inefficient and unpredictable. Reincarnation is symbolic representation of transformation of the activity every time it is repeated. ANATOMICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL BASIS OF KARMA: All the skeletal muscles of our body can isometrically contract (temporarily harden) and relax (temporarily soften) as though it were a single skeletal muscle. This entity is what is known in Hinduism as Purusha. Karma is caused by Isometric contraction and isometric relaxation of Purusha. Thus, Karma would distort activities executed by isotonic contractions caused by shortening of muscles. KARMA AND VARNAS: Karma is the highest in the Shudra Varna and least in the Brahmana Varna. This is because in the Shudra Varna there is unlimited freedom and in the Brahmana Varna there is no freedom at all. REDUCING KARMA: The best way to reduce Karma is Vedic meditation. This is a set of isometric exercises. Thus, it would enable us to make us become one with our Purusha and and alter its tone at will. BUDDHISM AND KARMA: Karma is the concept of action or deed. In the west, this is confused as the payback to your actions (Fate, e.g. It was my karma to get yelled at because I yell at everyone). This is an incorrect understanding. The reactions to your actions is called the Karmic Fruit (Pali:vipaka) and they are the ups & downs. Your karma is the way your typical reaction to a given situation each time it happens. The karmic fruit will bring about a reaction in either the present life or a future rebirth. This Buddhist perspective on Karma is ever slightly more different than that in Hinduism. Karma and its effects . Karma is hard to pursue, because it is constituted as the kernel of every living being. In ABHIDHAMMA karma concealed and cannot be revealed until someone attain Nirvana (Pali:-Nibbana). Karma is obliged in reincarnation. Consequences are like it will place you @ right place on the right time. Karma is the belief that what an individual puts out in to the universe will come back to them in the exact same manner.
Bad Karma is when you do a fowl deed or something that is not good. Example: Cheating, stealing, hurting someone, etc. Good karma is when you do something good, either for yo…urself or another person. Example: Charity, helping those in need, praying to god, etc.
KarmaKarma is based on logic. It is an unavoidable consequence of our creations. When we create anything, we also create other things which might not be what we intended. EX…AMPLe: If you do something good, enjoy your life. If you do something bad, you'll get something bad. A good phrase to describe Karma is, "Every Action has an equal or opposing reaction". what goes around comes around, it could be good or it could be bad.... MECHANISM OF KARMA:Hindu scriptures are written symbolically. Some scholars interpret them based on their literal meaning. Such interpretations are very popular because they can be understood by any one. However, the intended meaning of the scripture would be lost completely. Life, Reincarnation, Karma, Moksha and Brahman are the best examples It must be mentioned here that since Brahman is the Hindu god of facts, Reincarnation, Karma, Moksha and Brahman must be directly compatible with science. Therefore, there is absolutely no scope for beliefs and imaginations. ACTUAL MEANING OF THE ABOVE WORDS: 1. Life - activity 2. Reincarnation - transformation of an activity every time it is repeated 3. Karma - fluctuations in tone of our muscular system that causes transformation of the activity every time it is repeated. 4. Moksha - Abolition of fluctuation in tone of our muscular system that makes all activities of our life involuntary/ automatic , thus enabling us to use inborn reflex system of life, which we call Brahman. 5. Brahman - inborn human reflex system, common to all human beings, thus independent of time, place and person. It is for this reason that 'I' and Brahman are one and the same (Aham Brahmasmi - Brihadarankyaka Upanishad 1.4.10). PURUSHA (RIG VEDA - 1.10.90: Karma occurs in Purusha. All the skeletal muscles of our body can isometrically contract (harden) and relax (soften) as though they were a single skeletal muscle, which we can call as Unified Skeletal Muscle, USM. In Hinduism USM is known as Purusha. Purusha is same as Brahman (Manu Smriti - 1.11) with whom we become one with, after getting rid of our Karma and thus attaining Moksha. We get literal interpretation of Purusha and not the one based on the symbolism involved. This makes us conclude that Purusha is something Mythological and totally incompatible with science. KARMA: Karma is fluctuations in tone of Purusha, that raises or lowers the center of gravity. This facilitates, retards, modifies, abolishes or substitutes the activity. These unintended results are due to favorable or adverse effects of rest of the activities of our life. Karma indicates that the activity is not compatible with rest of the activities of our life and therefore it has to be modified (reincarnated) every time, to make it compatible with rest of the activities of our life. GETTING RID OF KARMA: Karma is abolished if each and every activity of our life are independently correct, just as in science. Otherwise, facilitation by one activity and an equal retardation by another activity would make the activity appear correct for some time. MECHANISM OF KARMA: If all the activities of our life are independently correct, then they can be merged in any combination, separated and remerged in new combinations. This can be done as many times as necessary and yet none of the activity would get modified (reincarnated). This is what we mean by 'getting rid of Karma'. It must be mentioned here that Brahman is the state at which all such independently correct activities of the highest status are interlinked and synchronized.
Karma can be received in a positive way by doing things with compassion, while it can also be received in a negative way by doing things with base emotions (negative emotions …in mind). Basically, if you do bad things, bad things will eventually happen to you. What goes aound, comes around! Its the effects of a persons actions that determine his/har destiny.
Karma 'keeps the world in balance'. If you do something bad, something bad will happen to you. If you do something good, something good will happen - "what goes around comes a…round" sort of thing. Reincarnation is being reborn in another body, after death. Animal, human etc How you live this life, determent what you are reincarnated into. For example. If you're born into a rich family, and you've never have to work a single day in your life and don't know the importance of having to earn your money - then you will be reborn into a poor family and have to work hard for money, so that you know what it's like not to have money. The meaning of all this, is so that you learn all of life's important lessons, and you can reach enlightenment.
no but that question shows that you are stupid The fact that you did not use a capital, coma, or period shows that you are stupid. karma is not a god. It is the belief tha…t there is so much good and so much bad in the world and that the universe, for lack of a better term, forces good and evel to remain balanced. Like if you are walking down the street and kick an old mans cane out from under him then later in life, or sooner rather than later, something bad will happen to you to balance out the chaos that you caused thus restoring stability. But if that were true then people who make a career of the red cross would retire with boat loads of cash. . . sadly they do not.
thats real story now iam watching video usman sayyed
