Karma is something that is also very important amongst Hindu priest, the whole hindu population itself. Karma is apart of a few different religions. A few of those religions are Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, but they mean very different things to one group than the other. Karma follows everyone. It is of nature and it cannot be helped. Karma is something that happens to a person either because of what they did in their current life or a previous. For every cause there will always be an effect. Whatever action a person takes there will always be a reaction. It is almost as if the person that you are, no matter how many times you are reborn, will always suffer the karma of your former life or former self.
It is a very hard cycle to try to break, but some have achieved. There are some things that can be done to become liberated or be released from the vicious cycle of karma. This victory is also referred to as moshka. I try to live better and holier every day. I have also been on a pilgrimage. Lots of other hindu priest have been on pilgrimages. You gain a lot of respect and knowledge for and from the higher powers. It gives you a tremendous enlightenment and it gives you time to reflect on life and the things that you have done. Everyone should seek this amazing blessing. Especially during these times. The world today is a very different place. Lots of people are going to have to endure the decline in their value of life for many many generations to come unless they start deciding to live right.
