How can karma be explained and how does it work?

Karma is the most important element that makes the world turn round. It is a conscious action or deed that leads to "causality" or cause and effect, a law of nature, a fundamental Buddhist doctrine. The force of such an action has to dissipate or neutralised when the right conditions surface or it will be stored in our deepest consciousness until the time is right for it to sprout up. Observe carefully and we shall find that there is no action in this universe that produces absolutely no consequence. It works like Newton's famous third law but it applies not just in the physical world but also in the mental realm.
