45 Karma Quotes to Inspire You


Do you believe that whatever you put into the world in terms of your doings, will come back to you in some form or other?

The word ‘Karma’ (karm) means action, a doing, or a deed. Karma is an old principle from Hinduism and Buddhism cultures that runs on the law of cause and effect. This spiritual principle also underlies the law of action and reaction. This law applies to one’s words, thoughts, and actions as well as the action someone else takes under their instructions. Believers of karma push themselves to do good and positive things.

Karma is hard to explain as it cannot be proven scientifically. But almost everyone believes in it! If you are someone who is still coming around to putting your belief in karma, then these quotes about karma may provoke your thoughts.

There are several misconceptions about karma that people use, which are not in line with its true meaning. Karma is denoted as luck sometimes, other times it is linked with destiny or fate, and it is also wrongly used to explain hardships.

Karma just does not only look at the actions done but also looks at the underlying thoughts behind the action. For instance, if a person makes a huge charity, if he does it with the pure intention to genuinely help people, good fortune awaits him. However, if he does this to show off to people, this could give rise to bad karma. Therefore, even your intentions matter!
