  • Hindu Theme Essay

    The Hindu theme that I chose to write about is karma. “The word comes from the root the means “to do” and implies the notion of moral consequences that are carried along with every act” (Molloy, 2010. P. 87). Another term that I hear that relate well with karma is that, you reap what you sow. I’m not of the Hindu religion, but I do believe that karma does come back around to you for the wrong that you do in your life. Therefore, I live by the Golden Rule, “do unto to others as you word have them do unto you” (Wikipedia, n.d.). Moreover, the Hindu religion believes in the rebirth of one’s life. “The general Hindu notion of rebirth assumes that human beings have at one or another time exited as a “lower” form, such as an animal, insect, and possibly even plant” (Molloy, 2010, p.87). Living your life for a personal gain or to do wrong against others can cause you to be reborn after as one of the lowest form of life. Life can also continue in the opposite way for you if you are always attempting to do better and try to do right by your fellow man. “A human being can also make a spectacular leap upward beyond the human level to a superhuman existence or even beyond, to complete freedom” (Molloy, 2010. P.87). In conclusion, karma is an essential part of the Hinduism. I look at it like Newton’s third law of motion, the cause and effect law. These two can relate with each other on how Hindus developed their belief in karma. Hindus believe that with every harmful action, there is a…
