General (Popular) Understanding :
Every action has it consequences. The consequences of one’s actions are often called “karmaphala”. Typically, good karma is puNyam and leads to benefits; bad karma is pāpam and it leads to hardship. When unpredictable bad things happen, Hindus attribute it to their bad karma, either from this life or from a previous life. Pious Hindus like to earn Punyam by doing good deeds and wash off their Papam through charity, penance, rituals and prayer. Sometimes it is hard to decide what is a good deed and what is a bad deed.
- The thought of Karma can paralyze pious people into inaction or remove their motivation to work.
- Krishna taught that if you do your duty, established in Yoga, not motivated by results, then Karma will not stick to you.
