By Swami Harshananda

Sometimes transliterated as: Agami-karma, AgAmI-karma, AAgaami-karma


Āgāmī-karma literally means ‘the future karma (action)’.

Belief in karma (action) and punarjanma (reincarnation) is one of the fundamental dogmas of the religion. Karma or action, good or bad, must have its effect. Āgāmī-karma is the karma that is being done now or will be done in the future (before death). The results of these karmas will be produced later.
