WHAT IS KARMA?
Karma simply refers to
the Law of Cause and Effect.
Abstract terms of Cause and Effect or Action and Reaction, were simply explained by spiritual teachers in ancient days as what you sow, is what you reap; what you plant, you will harvest!
This explanation makes the Law of Karma seem to be easy to grasp. Everyone can comprehend the fact that if you sow rice, you will reap rice. If you plant apple, you will harvest apple!
However, its application in daily life in detail, the method of its working and its far-reaching consequences are so vast and not that easy to grasp anymore; and even gets more complicated as our knowledge increases. That is why most people take it for granted, or consider it as a mere superstition!
