The A to Z of Karma

The A to Z of Karma


The Law of Karma is very deep

As we sow, so shall we reap

The bad we do will make us weep

And the good that we do, we get to keep


It's a Law of Action, a Law of Reaction

It's a Law that says, we get what we give

A Law that ensures what goes around comes around

A Law that's for everyone on this ground


The Law of Karma is born from our Dharma

Karma is a Law, A Universal Law

A Law that watches all our actions

And a Law that ensures the same reaction


If we plant tomatoes, we won't get mangoes

If we plant cactus, we won't get a rose

So also if we do good, our reward will be good

And if we do bad – what returns is just as bad


What is this Law of Cause and Effect?

A Law that ensures the balance is perfect

A Law that records everything we do

Good or bad, it must come back to you


But how does this Law work, we don't know

It belongs to the One who created this show

It controls how on Earth we come and go

Does it end at death? The answer is NO!


Our Body may die, but our Karma stands by

We CAN escape our Karma – that is a lie!

Our Mind will be reborn to live and to die

And we will continue to suffer and cry


Death is not the end; it's just a bend

Whatever we have done has to be undone

If our actions are rewarded as we live – that's great

Otherwise, the residue will decide our next fate


Is our body responsible for how we act?

No, it's our mind that's in charge, in fact

Thus, the Law of Karma is that of the Mind

It's the ego and mind that suffers we find.


It carries the good and the bad that we do

The score doesn't settle at death when we go

Life after life, the score goes on

The Karmic score decides how we are reborn


So should we suffer again and again?

When will we finally escape this pain?

We can if only we Realize the Truth

We must get to the bottom; we must get to the root


What is our purpose of life on Earth?

Are we just born to die and take birth?

Where did we come from? Where do we go?

The Law will go on till the Truth we know


Are we the Body? Are we the Mind?

Are we the Ego? The Truth we must find

The ignorance that's around us, we must rewind

We are Energy of a different kind


The Law of Karma makes this world go round

It's a Law that makes sure all's well on the ground

The Law is for all who come and go

Except for those who understand this show


Those who realize we are not the body or the mind

Those who are able – the Truth to find

They are the fortunate few who escape from action

For them, there is no Karma, no Law of Reaction


When bad things happen to the good, don't blink

It's the Law of Karma in action, just think

If you plant a seed, you will face the deed

For what you do will come back to you


If you want to master the Law of Karma

You must realize that the world is a Drama

You must know you are not the body and the mind

Then True Joy, Bliss and Peace you will find
