There's a saying that "what you do unto others, other will do unto you". I guess, most of the time this happens. If people cheat, they might be cheated. If people rob they get rob too. One situation happened that this friend of my get some money and she thought nobody knew it,but I do. a couple of weeks, her cellphone was rob while she is walking along the street. The amount of her cellphone is exactly the amount of money she stealed. I guess KARMA is true.

That's what I mean... I do believe in Golden Rule but Karma itself...I dont. Sorry if i feel pretty sure about this. In the first place we were asked of our opinion and mine is... I do not believe in it. And about you doing good to others... please continue doing that even if others will do the opposite towards you. God bless us

hello cheri, well i too believe in karma. every thing that a man does ... he bears the fruit of that in the same life itself. these happens in ways that are unknown to us and in ways that we still fail to understand. well in simple terms do no harm to others and no harm will be done to you. anyways have a good day.

I believe in karma. I believe what one does is always returned in some way or another. If you try to do good, sooner or later good things will happen to you, and if you do bad things sooner or later that will catch up with you as well.

Yes, and even it happens in different way it just reminds that what you did will go back to you.

I kind of believe in karma. I would rather call it the power of JAHovah. Many times when people do things i see that it happens to then soon after. Many times i see this. Example; i was working at a gas station. The manager and her friends were coming to the store in her off hours and getting junk to eat, soda and filling up their gas tank. It escalladed to the amout of $3,000 before any thing was done. The owner fired everyone in the station. Refused to hire anyone back. Said they didn't know who had done it or what. Althought i know that people where turning her in all along. She never had the security cam on. That gas station was robbed that following weekend and shortly after i was going past there and saw i sign on the door that said "closed forever". I just thought well alright then thats what happens where you fire innocent people.

Another example; My ex set a car of mine on fire. The security cameras didnt cath him. He wasnt caught or punished for what he did to me. I prayed that some how Jah would get him. Exactly one week later he was caught doing another crime and was sentenced to 4 yrs in a correctional facility. He is now a felon.

I do believe in Karma and what goes around comes around. My ex husband is sitting in the state prison because of all the rotten things he has done. He will lose his freedom for over a year because he was abusive towards me and my daughter.

What you do in life comes back to you three fold. I absolutely believe in Karma and I've seen Karma at work both personally and watching others get back what they give out on plenty of occasions. I don't believe that Karma gives back exactly what the person does but something of equal "value" to what they put out there. At least not all the time or the majority of the time. It always comes full circle eventually and everything balances itself out sooner or later.

yes ur rigth, it goes with equal value or the likes.

Have u heard of a religion called Hinduism because u are talking about the core concept of "Classical Hinduism". I guess i would be branded a hard core religious fanatic if i start prophesisng about the fundamentals of Hinduism.If u do really believe in KARMA i ll recommend u reading a a set of books called Upanishads.The whole understanding of Karma would unravel in front of you. I guess you are a Christian and as far as i know Bible doesn't contain the ideal of KARMA.i m quite pleasantly surprised to hear such belief exists in your country when the originator of Hinduism had let go of such philosophical drags. I perfectly am in unison with your belief that KARMA exists because the belief emphasises what u call poetic justice.Divinity can never allow gross injustice to exist in this world without extracting revenge upon its inmates in the form of alloowing us wallow in greed, lust and gluttony without ever blinking an eye and sparing a second for the people who die every second on this earth due to hunger or civil war.

Wow thank you for giving the whole fact about KARMA, its my first time to hear about it but honestly we as christian don't beleive with the word karma but it's principle we do.

I believe that what goes around comes around though it may not come back in the same way. The word "karma", especially in my country, has always had a negative connotation. It's always associated with bad deeds almost discrediting "good" karma. I don't think there's anything wrong with believing the karmic ways since it encourages people to do good deeds and discourages the bad ones.

Oh I see, your right sometimes people misunderstood the word KARMA and we tend to forget that it has to side "GOOD & BAD"

i am a firm believer.. although some times it seems like karma is a little lenient on certain people but i guess to that person what ever might be small payback to you could be totally horrible to them.. i just try to not do anything to bring bad things towards me

I do believe in karma , But not in religious sense. I do believe good begets good and bad begets bad.although i do know bad things do happen to good people and not because they have done something wrong.Every time someone does something good for me i say to myself i must have deserved for something tht i have done to others.I have always told my students if they want something good to happen to them ..then they should do something good.What goes around,Comes around.You may not get ur gift immediately...but u do get it when you are least expected..

I more or less believe in what you have stated. I believe that I should do no harm to others, I should not cheat of deceive any body and I should be available to others for help. I do my duties sincerely and honestly and I leave it to God, what is in store for me.

Hi cheri_janine, Some people say "what goes around, comes around". To me that's karma. It may not always happen as it did to your friend, but it does happen. Sayings like,"Give and it will be given unto you" and "Condemn not and you will not be condemned", all convey the same message. Blessings.

Yep, karma is real. I think it's the natural consequence for a persons actions and I think it is cool how the punishment always fits the crime.

i do believe in karma, i think everybody should do too.we just have to be careful in every thing that we do or say,,any thing that may harm others just because of our wrong decision may lead to something that we will regret in the end.

For me I do believe...It goes like this what goes around comes around, what goes up must go down, right???

I don't believe in karma as a mystical power or anything of the sort but I do say you that you have to give to receive. Meaning that if you do somebody a favour they'll maybe repay you but if you're horrible to them they'd never want to help you in a million years. It's simple logic but not a mystical power with benefits like in My Name Is Earl.

yup, i do believe in karma. That's one of the things I teach my eldest son. Because I know it's true. I always keep it in mind because I am really scared to do bad things be it to other people or animals. My dad used to say that if the karma does not come back to you, it will go to your kids. And I dont want that. Imagine, if I did something bad and karma might bounce back to my kids..So, better do good to others and at least something good also will happen to me..

I think it is true. I even heard that there is good karma and bad karma. I wonder is this true or false?

Yes, I think it is true. I think that if you are a bad person and do bad things that it will come back to you and pay you back. No one needs to exact revenge on someone becaue that person will be repaid eventually. I have seen it happen to people. By the same token if you are a nice person and do good things then it will be repaid back as well in some other way. People do not always recognize it but it happens.
