Definition of Karma

Karma is a Sanskrit word and means “Action or work.”  How do you define karma? We all know what an action or work is, but we never feel that a definition is needed. Krishna defined Karma in Bhagavad Gita as:

Bhuut bhavodbhavakaro visargah karma sangyitah //8:3//

Bhuut = close to “being” rather than a person.

Bhava = thought, feelings or emotions

So, Krishna says that a thought, feeling or emotion arises in a being. This is the first part of the verse, “Bhuut bhavodbhavakaro”

Visargah = discharge, disposition, completing, release of


Karma is release, disposition or discharge of one’s thoughts, feelings and/or emotions.

Example: The flower is beautiful and I want it. I release this feeling and thought by plucking the flower from its plant. Plucking becomes an action by definition.

How about that?
