Karma is an important concept in a range of Vedic religions and cultures, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Karma is a universal principal and cosmic law, like the Tao of Taoism. Unlike Taoism, individual beings (and the entire universe) go through a large number of incarnations. It is closely linked to the concept of continual rebirth (reincarnation). In Hinduism and Jainism this liberation is called moksha and in Buddhism the result is the attainment of enlightenment and nirvana. More people on Earth have believed in Karma through a series of rebirths than in any other religious principle.
