What is karma?

Master Stephen Co
Alternative & Complementary Medicine

Karma is the unbreakable cosmic law of cause and effect. It maintains that if you perform bad actions or deeds, they return to you in some negative form. Likewise, if you perform good actions or deeds, they too return, but in some positive or favorable form. Karma is a term that has become popularized to mean “what goes around comes around,” or to refer to some type of “cosmic justice system.” Yet karma does function exactly like that.

Some question the validity of karma as a universal principle because they do not always see the law applied in the way they’d like or expect. They observe that many “bad” people are outwardly successful or happy, while many “good” or “innocent” people are suffering. But we often lack the wisdom and insight to see through the appearances of this physical world. Just because we don’t see immediate punishment in this world for “bad” deeds and immediate reward for “good” doesn’t invalidate the law of karma. The law of karma is unbreakable and unchangeable.
