What Is Karma?

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads from Lesson 31 of the Himalayan Academy publication "Path To Siva," explaining the law of Karma which is considered as the automatic system of divine justice. The three kinds of karma are also outlined: deeds done in the past; karmas brought into this earth and karma created in the present by our own actions. Karma can be overcome by understanding our actions and refraining from misdeeds. Performance of good deeds and seeking grace of Gods and Gurus help to mitigate or soften the effects of karma.

What do we mean when we say there is no good and no bad, only experience? We mean that in the highest sense, there is no good and bad karma; there is self-created experience that presents opportunities for spiritual advancement.
