How does karma work?


Karma 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.


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....


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.


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 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.


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.


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.
