Karma (Sanskrit "deed," "action," "ritual," "result") A central Indian term with various meanings.
1) Any mental, verbal, or physical action or intention, especially a morally correct or textually prescribed activity.
2) The results or consequences of actions or intentions.
3) The Hindu principle of cause and effect, originally developed in South Asian religions, that determines one's past, current, and future existences. Everything we do produces some effect, now or later, on the physical or astral planes. Representing neither good nor evil, all actions and events cause corresponding actions and events in the past
or future (including past and future lives through reincarnation).
4) Ritual activity, particularly the ancient Indian rites propitiating a pantheon of gods as prescribed in the Vedic texts. Ritual performance might be done to meet religious obligations, such as initiation into the community, to honor one's ancestors, or to fulfill individual desires such as wealth, progeny, or immortality. The results of ritual, which are also called karma, were sometimes interpreted as "unseen" (apurva), that is, postponed or not yet noticeable in order to explain apparently delayed consequences. While all could admit that actions would eventually bear consequences, the doctrine of unseen results provoked lively debate and reconsideration of the importance of ritual.
5)
The erroneous western interpretation: That the good and bad deeds that we do adds and subtracts from our accumulated record, our karma. At the end of our life, we are rewarded or punished according to our karma by being reincarnated into either a painful or good new life.

Okay, you might want to elaborate on this....not sure what you are trying to impart...

also--i don't see that thread you were going to start in this area (Belief Systems) under Advice....where you were going to offer your pastoring expertise. That would be the proper place for you to offer your insight in matters of religion. So let's have it, girl. Be the HotPeanut Pastor.
