Karma is a term that means an act. In Hinduism it is a law concept whereby there is that belief that some is responsible for his or her future. The law states that an individual is in a position to make his or her choices which would determine what will happen in the future. In this concept it is believed that if someone does good things then good things will happen to him or her in future but if an individual is involved in evil doing then that person’s future will have bad things happening to him or her.

The belief in Karma is that actions determine the reactions in ones` personal life. The Law of Karma is a tradition viewed in Hinduism as an obligatory ritual or duties to be done by every human being in their social moral lives. This law is fully observed by the Hindu and it is taught even in schools to young people who are still growing. This law is written in the Hindu scriptures and that is why it valued highly in the community.

The Law of Karma is without doubt having some negative and positive effects on human experience. People cannot go on with their lives without doing several actions. The Law of Karma brings fear on people as they do not want to get negative consequences. The law has brought confusions among the Hindu. Some people commit crimes such as murder and they say it is the law of Karma since that is what somebody else did that made that person commit a crime.
