Buddhists believe very strongly in the concept of Karma. They believe that every single action of yours, whether good or bad, helpful or hurtful, earns you merits or demerits. And life has a way of settling scores. If you have done something that hurt someone, even if that wasn't your intention, you will pay back by suffering a hundred times over.

This concept was explained to us by our guide Sonam while we were travelling in Bhutan, when asked about what he felt about the Chinese invasion of Tibet.

Over time, I have realised that I believe very strongly in Karma. That life comes a full circle. That good things eventually happen to good people. And vice versa. The only catch is, who decides whether you're good or bad??
