By Swami Harshananda
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.
