The Hindus' Karma Theory - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Soul had no pain without body.
Body has no pain without soul.
Soul, liberated has no pain.
Body, dead, lost senses for pain.

Engine with oil runs the car.
Without oil, the car won't move.
The credit goes to the engine.
Burdon of the fruit goes with soul.

The soul finds an entrance in a birth.
With it come the fruit of the past.
As long as the sin carried over,
The soul enters birth after birth.

    You are right. We are responsible for our actions, whether it is good or bad. If we do good things, we carry good karma and if we do bad things, we will carry bad karma. Even after the death, the soul carries the karma to the next birth......
