KARMA, sometimes written Karman, a Sanskrit noun (from the root kri, to do), meaning deed or action.
Karman, Jozsef (1769-1795), Hungarian author, was born at Losoncz on the 14th of March 1769, the son of a Calvinist pastor.
Karman, who had long been suffering from an incurable disease, died in the same year.
Karman also wrote two satires and fragments of an historical novel, while his literary programme is set forth in his dissertation Anemzet csinosoddsa.
Ujs, 1874); Zsolt Beothy, article on Karman in Kepes Irodalomtortenet (Budapest, 1894).
Since by the universally accepted doctrine of karman (deed) or karmavipaka (" the maturing of deeds") man himself - either in his present, or some future, existence - enjoys the fruit of, or has to atone for, his former good and bad actions, there could hardly be room in Hindu pantheism for a belief in the remission of sin by divine grace or vicarious substitution.
