- Karma means “action.” As soon as we perform, we get involved in the universe, become accountable, and are bound to harvest the results of what we have done by the laws of nature.
- “Karma involves the entire thought processes used to arrive at a conclusion for doing something or not doing something.” Learning, community service, understanding, recalling memories from the past, and not doing what we should do are all karma
- Our actions of the past define our temperament at the present moment.
- Our actions of the present influence our circumstances at the next moment
- Everyone in the universe, except God, is bound to karma. When we are no longer accountable for our karma, we can say that we have transcended the universe.
