Vivekanand’s concept of Karma

Karma means action, work or deed; it also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual. According to Swami ji, Karma determines human’s nature, but it is human’s karma. One’s own actions create tendencies that bear fruit for the future. Secondly, karma does not contradict human’s freedom. It is because final escape rests ultimately with one’s own actions. By one’s own good deeds, one can win over one’s ignorance and suffering. That shows that human is basically free.
