8 Kamma So what is kamma? Kamma literally means 'intentional action', and this refers to the Buddhist belief in the Principle of Cause and Effect. That is, every intentional act will give rise to a corresponding result, in either the present life or in a future one, when conditions are right. The results of kamma are not rewards or punishments, but simply the results or outcome of intentional acts. Positive actions will eventually result in positive consequences, and negative actions will eventually result in negative consequences.

66 What does rebirth and kamma explain? People have always wondered about the fairness of life, and why everyone is not born equal. Questions are always asked about why is one person so healthy, and another born with many physical afflictions. Why is one person born into a very wealthy family, and another born into abject poverty. Why is one person able to enjoy a long and happy life, and another having their life cut short by violence or accident. Buddhists do not believe that all these inequalities are because of random events, luck, fate or the will of a god. Kamma and rebirth are able to explain these differences in people's lives.
