I'll say what I know about it..


there are many deciding factors in where people choose their religion..
my father feels that there is a problem with christianity because he thinks if there was a god (jesus' father) and what/not.. there would be no starving africans and other oppressed peoples..

he is a non-practicing buddhist.. karma is an everyday practice of raising your inner spirits so when you are reborn you will live a better life.

for example.. for people like john gacy.. and other hardcore serial killers.. because they relatively 'sinned' so much.. their karma is extremely low.. and when it comes time for reincarnation.. they will be a starving ethiopian or other bad people..
if he lives a good life.. contributing to the good of all of those around him and even those who arent.. when reincarnation comes around he will be a wealthy, more importantly happy individual

i hope i made sense with what i said.. just tryin to get a point across

what goes around comes around....
if you do something bad, something bad will happen to you. if you do something good, something good will happen to you.

^ Its nice in some ways when that happens... but..

1) it carrying across from previous lives is another issue..

and

2) there are too many 'bad' people being bad and not getting their due 'bad karma'.. aren't there?

once I asked a wise person that question seer, he said those ppl you think of might not be "punished" obvious like gettin put on death row or sumthin, but they aint happy... they aint happy, even if it looks like they are

"Karma", or whatever you want to call it, is the number of black marks on the soul. You are punished by it in your next life so as to teach you the wrongs of it. As soon as your soul is pure white again, you ascend to a bodyless state of Nirvana.

I'd always assumed you'd already reached nirvana.

Yeah what I know is that what goes around comes around, if you do something bad to someone it'll come back to you....thats what karma is all about...If you jump somebody for example....karma will catch up to you and something bad may happen to you....I know thats a shitty example but thats just an example from the top of my head

Karma is what go around come around...

I belive that Karma is instant, and it's done do oneself unconciously.  It happens to me all the damn time.  I'll be makin fun of someone or something, then I'll turn around and bang my arm on something.  It's like my own way of punishing myself, without me even knowing it......but I'm onto myself........

kARMA IS an old Hindu Philosophy which has sprouted from the bellief of the scholars that Constructive Introspection is the best way of reform...

when somthin bad/good happens a man can reflect on the misdeeds/gooddeeds he's done and get a hold on himself and reform....

as many pointed out it doesn't just help in afterlife... it controls us while we're living too!!!
