What is Kamma?
Kamma is one of the natural laws of the universe governing all sentient beings.
The Pali word Kamma (Karma in Sanskrit) literally means action or doing. Any kind of intentional action, whether mental, verbal or physical is regarded as Kamma. Inherent in kamma is the potentiality of producing its due effect, which operates in its own field without the intervention of any external, independent ruling agency. Kamma produces results (Kamma vipaka) which the doer has to experience. This is a reaction in accordance with the natural law of cause and effect.
