Karma is defined as any action, work or deed which we have already done and our intention behind that act. It is based on the principle of cause and effect, good intentions and deeds will lead to good Karma, and bad intentions and deeds will lead to bad Karma.

The definition of Karma varies from one belief to another, so it is complex in nature. These definitions are the combination of 1) causality, 2) ethicization, and 3) rebirth.

Causality or cause and effect principle mean that an event, process or object(cause) leads to the creation of another event, process or object(effect), where the cause is responsible for the effect and effect is dependant on the cause. The principle of ethicization believes that every action has some consequences; hence one should always be wary of their actions. Rebirth is the cycle of reincarnation that will continue in every lifetime, and the form, realm, and condition of the person at rebirth will depend upon his past qualities and quantities of Karma.
