That's the issue I have with it.

However, golden if you believe you can transcend your bad karma in this life, then I can see how it would be helpful to you.
Still there are deaths and clashes and violence because of the caste system here in India... I myself come from a lower caste. Am I bad?

Of course not!! That's not what I personally believe. I don't even agree with the caste system over there. I don't support the use of karma for that purpose whatsoever. I am not in India or from India and did not know that they use it that way. I have my own understanding of it, which clearly is fairly limited to just what I know about it.

This thread has turned into something I don't care for it it be. It has turned negative. I am going to ask Admin to shut it down.

I know I shouldn't have started all this. I should learn to remain quiet.
