Karma is a concept that we use to develop further understanding of confused or samsaric action. Karma is the law of cause and effect, which is governed by action—and action is governed by our psychological state. It is the perpetual creation of entrapment, the perpetual creation of neurosis and confusion. Karma is clear evidence that our current situation and activities are the product of our own actions. The result is the product of our own state of being.
