Do you? Why or why not? I believe in karma, many people do even if it is not the belief of their religion. Belief in karma is not even necessarily religious.

I neither believe in Karma nor in its principle that Karma is the effects of a person's actions that determine their fate in this life and the next incarnation. I do not believe in incarnation or rebirth. I rather believe in intentions than in Karma. One performs action only after his intentions make him act. If intentions are right, then person's Karma too will be right. If intentions are wrong then karma too will be wrong. Therefore, I believe intentions are more important than Karma. It is the intention that determines the fate of one’s life. It also determines if ones action would be acceptable in the sight of God or not.

According to the wordnetweb.princeton.edu (Hinduism and Buddhism) the effects of a person's actions that determine his destiny in his next incarnation. I don't know for real, what to believe in this sense. I can only say there might be a payback time for mankind. If you want to be good, be good and if Bad, be that as well. You'll reap what you sow. Really, we need help here isn'it it?

Yes, I very much believe in Karma! I feel that I would be in a nut house somewhere if it wasn't for Karma.There have been a lot of injustice down through the years for me and I feel it is the outcome of bad decisions and follows some people for a long time. It is some peoples just deserts.

I do believe in karma. Whether it is a good karma or bad karma. I agree that karma is not really a religious thought. It is philosophical. Cause whatever you do, there are really some consequences that you will face. Of course if you have done something wrong, it will also cause you harm. And if you did the right thing, people will also be good to you and will return the favor afterwards.

Yes, I do, although not in a religious way. I think we can bring on our own "bad karma" by not focusing on the positive things around us. I also think you should generally try to avoid people ahe exude negativity, because I think their bad karma can infect you too. I believe the idea of karma is related to the concept of "what goes around, comes around." If you try to lead a positive, productive life, help others, and stay on the high road, you will have good karma, and people will respond to you in kind. If you choose a darker or more negative path, well, then that's the path you chose, and don't be surprised if bad things happen as a result.

I think it merely states the law of physics that "what comes up must fall down". But the only difference is they talk about it in a mystical way. Well, surely if you punch someone in the face, your gonna get what you deserve. That i believe..
