Karma is one of the most important doctrines of Buddhism. The word Karma means deeds’ or in singular ‘action’. The word Karma covers two distinct ideas, namely, the deed itself and the effects of that deed in modifying the subsequent character and fortunes of the doer. The Buddhists say that their subjective effect continues after death into the next life. Karma expresses not that which a man inherits from his ancestors but that which he inherits from himself in some previous state of existence.
