The A to Z of Karma

The Law of Karma is very deep
As we sow, so shall we reap
The bad we do will make us weep
And the good that we do, we get to keep

It’s a Law of Action, a Law of Reaction
It’s a Law that says, we get what we give
A Law that ensures what goes around comes around
A Law that’s for everyone on this ground

The Law of Karma is born from our Dharma
Karma is a Law, A Universal Law
A Law that watches all our actions
And a Law that ensures the same reaction

If we plant tomatoes, we won’t get mangoes
If we plant cactus, we won’t get a rose
So also if we do good, our reward will be good
And if we do bad – what returns is just as bad

What is this Law of Cause and Effect?
A Law that ensures the balance is perfect
A Law that records everything we do
Good or bad, it must come back to you

But how does this Law work, we don’t know
It belongs to the One who created this show
It controls how on Earth we come and go
Does it end at death? The answer is NO!

Our Body may die, but our Karma stands by
We CAN escape our Karma – that is a lie!
Our Mind will be reborn to live and to die
And we will continue to suffer and cry

Death is not the end; it’s just a bend
Whatever we have done has to be undone
If our actions are rewarded as we live – that’s great
Otherwise, the residue will decide our next fate

Is our body responsible for how we act?
No, it’s our mind that’s in charge, in fact
Thus, the Law of Karma is that of the Mind
It’s the ego and mind that suffers we find

It carries the good and the bad that we do
The score doesn’t settle at death when we go
Life after life, the score goes on
The Karmic score decides how we are reborn

So should we suffer again and again?
When will we finally escape this pain?
We can if only we Realize the Truth
We must get to the bottom; we must get to the root

What is our purpose of life on Earth?
Are we just born to die and take birth?
Where did we come from? Where do we go?
The Law will go on till the Truth we know

Are we the Body? Are we the Mind?
Are we the Ego? The Truth we must find
The ignorance that’s around us, we must rewind
We are Energy of a different kind

The Law of Karma makes this world go round
It’s a Law that makes sure all’s well on the ground
The Law is for all who come and go
Except for those who understand this show

Those who realize we are not the body or the mind
Those who are able – the Truth to find
They are the fortunate few who escape from action
For them, there is no Karma, no Law of Reaction

When bad things happen to the good, don’t blink
It’s the Law of Karma in action, just think
If you plant a seed, you will face the deed
For what you do will come back to you

If you want to master the Law of Karma
You must realize that the world is a Drama
You must know you are not the body and the mind
Then True Joy, Bliss and Peace you will find.
