The Three Karmas

August 26, 2019



Q. What are the three karmas? 


A. Karma of the body 
Karma of the mouth 
Karma of the mind 


‘Karma’ is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘deeds’. The ‘three karmas’ are karma of the body, karma of the mouth, and karma of the mind. These sum up all of our deeds.


Karma of the body 
Deeds that we do with our bodies. 


Karma of the mouth 
Words that we speak with our mouths. 


Karma of the mind 
Thoughts that we think with our minds. 


The deeds of the body, mouth, and mind turn into invisible, indestructible energy. This is called ‘indestructible karmic energy’. This ‘karmic energy’ becomes a cause, and, when combined with the right condition, brings about our own fate (results). A ‘condition’ is something that helps a cause give rise to an effect.
