The line of questioning is slightly wrong.

Karmic law isn't based on any religion, faith, or tradition for it is a natural law which simply exists irrespectively!

Karma is a universal principle which states 'All action and reaction must be opposite and equal' or 'For every cause, there must be an effect'.

One might ask what science is gravity based on?!

Gravity is simply a natural law like karma and existed before its discovery by Sir Issac Newton and will continue to exist long into the future.

It would be correct to ask what religion has karma and dharma as its basis!!!

This is a more correct question!

The term 'Dharma' is of Sanskrit origin and is used in the Hindu tradition in reference to karma and reincarnation. Dharma also refers to the 'universal order of perfection throughout creation'. Dharma conveys a deep philosophical concept which includes Karma and is the basis of most Eastern philosophy, Religion and mystic practice.


The Hindu Religion has these two concepts as their basis.

Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism and almost every other major religion throughout the world have these two concepts within its teachings although different terminolgy is used by their adherents.

I might add that modern science is discovering these ancient laws anew.

It appears the ancient rishis of India were thousands of years ahead of modern science in some respects!!!
