A Buddhism Karma perspective of life is viewed differently from how
most people view the topic. To most people the definition of karma is,
"you get back in life what you put out."
But this is actually a limited view according to Buddhist traditions.
fully understand the Buddhist perspective of karma we first understand
a bit Buddhism and reincarnation theory.
Reincarnation is simply the belief that we all have lived before. We
lived, we died and now we're born again here in a new physical body.
There are differing beliefs and theories as to the grand "purpose" of
why we continue to be born and continue lifetime after lifetime but for
now let's focus on what happens within each lifetime and how it's

Buddhist also believe that, “you reap what you

karma by doing good deeds and “right”
Right actions are any actions that align with Buddhist doctrines, such
as temple visits, prayers or even dedication of service.
Some people are surprised to find that these Buddhist practices are not
