Recently as I was browsing through some forums I came across an interesting statement which I quote (in my own words): This set me thinking - are all the people who die or suffer in earth quakes and floods and bomb-blasts the "victims" of their own karma? It does seem quite unbelievable doesn't it, that all of these people had "accumulated" enough karma to suffer and all were together at the same time? As I pondered on this, I asked myself, is pain and suffering and even death necessarily a result of "bad karma"? Am I looking at this purely from the human perspective that "It it does not feel good, then probably it is not good also?" Afterall, "no pain, no gain" is the mantra of body builders. Bad karma results in unpleasant experiences, Good Karma in pleasant experiences - is this assumption really true? Would love to know what all of you think... With Regards.
