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 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

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 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.


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.
