Karma and the Golden Rule

Karma and the Golden Rule can decide our fate, destiny and life. The Law of Attraction works with Karma. In all religions and spiritual traditions, the Karma rule means the same. Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam all speaks of the same rule. Karma is a teacher, a spiritual teacher which wants us to grow and develop and be our own master. Dhammapada, Mahabharata & Bhagwat Gita, Hadith, Bible all talk about one thing as the Karmic Rule. The Golden Rule of Karma as a behavioral guide clarifies that, you receive from the world what you give to the world. Karma is also associated through past life and the tarot reading depicts well about it. Meditation also helps us in gaining karmic knowledge.


Christian saying of: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Do unto others what you want others to do unto you and Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.

If we study the different religions all around the world, they all have similar beliefs regarding what Karma is and the Golden rule. All the religions, be it Christianity or Islam or Buddhism, they all teach that we reap what we sow. What we have done in our past actually controls our present, if that bad karma is not neutralized with the right deeds. So, if our karma from the past can control our present then our karma at the present time can very similarly control our future!


“Whatever thou likest not for thine own self, for any person else, too, like it not”

– Dhammapada, Wisdom of Buddha



Buddha said that said that all human beings have their own karma. It is the deed of their past that makes the difference between the fortunate and the misfortunes.


As said in Mahabharata:  “Deal with others as thou wouldst thyself be dealt by. Do nothing to thy neighbor which thou wouldst not have him do to thee hereafter”. 
In Islam, From the Hadith, the collected oral and written accounts of Muhammad and his teachings during his lifetime:


“A Bedouin came to the prophet, grabbed the stirrup of his camel and said: O the messenger of God! Teach me something to go to heaven with it. Prophet said: “As you would have people do to you, do to them; and what you dislike to be done to you, don’t do to them”.

The karma is as good as the third Law of motion of Einstein which says, “For every single action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

So, Karma is a sum of all that an individual has done, is currently doing and will do. Karma is not about retribution, vengeance, punishment or reward; karma simply deals with what is.

Well I feel that the words “good” and “bad” are just judgments that we put. So, for me, karma is not good or bad. It’s just what is. It’s simple. You’ll be now confused what is she saying.

But my friend, this is the truth. I believe that what you do to others, think of others or feel of others or a situation you’re actually sending it to the universe, because that is how thoughts, feelings and deeds work out.

Karma acts as a universal teacher rather than a fatalistic executioner. Therefore, it is not bad at all as it gives a chance to balance an imbalanced energy, a way to correct an erroneous past decision and create the life we know is our divine right.
