karma quotes

Karma (Sanskrit: कर्म, karman, pali: kamma – effect, deed) means a philosophical-religious concept, by which every action – physical or spiritual – inevitably has a consequence. This is not necessarily the case in today’s life.
To better understand the concept of karma, Swami Vivekananda in his book, “Raja Yoga“, uses the example of a stone thrown into a vacuum (where the gravitational force of the planets does not exist). Any stone you throw in this environment will eventually return to you, with an impulse equal to the one you used to throw it. In the same way, any action ultimately returns, equally and in the same form, to the one who initiated it.
Why isn’t this concept obvious to all of us? The explanation of the Himalayan yogis is: “because we forget.” Sometimes the effect of past actions manifests itself at a later time in the same life, other times it only updates in a future life, when conditions are right. Even when it manifests itself in today’s life, we have long since forgotten that action. Nor can we always see the connection, because it is not only on the physical, material level. The ways of the “Lord” are not always easy to understand. It takes a deep spiritual depth.
In short, karma is a religious and philosophical concept by which every activity, physical or spiritual decision has a binding, positive or negative consequence.
