You must have heard of the saying — what goes around comes around.
Well, that is karma for you.
It has always been said that whatever you give out to the universe, you get back the same. If you give good vibes and intentions, you will get back the same. However, if you give bad vibes, you will get that.
Maybe that is why it is said, whatever you do, do it with good intentions, as what you give, you get back. Right?
So let’s read some karma quotes and get all the inspiration we need to live a truthful life.
