For whatever reasons, Ray, call it . . . fate, call it luck, call it karma. I believe everything happens for a reason. I believe that we were destined to get thrown out of this dump.
If the experience is used for self-indulgence, self-aggrandizement, or self-exaltation, the entity does so to its own undoing, and creates for itself that which has been called karma and which must be met. And in meeting every error, every trail, every temptation, whether they may be mental or physical experiences, the approach to it should always be in the attitude of: “Not my will, but Thine, O God, be done in and through me.” ( Many Mansions, Chapter 7 – karma in suspension. )edgar cayce

You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.steve jobs
The Narakas are the realms of suffering that equate to the Christian hell or, more accurately, to purgatory . If a person is born into one of these realms as a result of bad karma , this is not a permanent punishment - he or she may well be reborn into one of the higher worlds in the next life . Watched over by Yama , judge of the world, the Narakas are not only physical places but also states of consciousness – and symbols of the suffering that can take place during life, as well as after death .
Gossip and reputation make sure that what comes around - a person who is cruel will find that the others are cruel hack to him, and a person who is kind will find others are kind in return. Gossip paired with reciprocity allow karma to work here on earth, not in the next life. As long as everyone plays tit-for-tat augmented by gratitude, vengeance, and gossip, the whole system should work beautifully.
Through mantra we can gain mastery of all the forces of time and karma.
...there were three different ways of approaching God, viz., the ways of action ( karma ), knowledge ( jnana ), and devotion (bhakti). Of these, bhakti is the best among them, since it is the only means of salvation and the state of love (prema) and service (seva) which bhakti implies is better than even release.

The Hindu theory of reincarnation is based upon four basic principles: permanence of the atman , existence of maya (the original ignorance ), liberation ( moksha ) of the atman from samsara and the law of karma .
Moksha or Emancipation is not a product or effect of any action. That which is the product of anything is bound to be non-permanent ( anitya ) and as moksha is permanent and eternal , it cannot be supposed to be the resultant of anything; it is the realization of the self as it is by its nature, and this becomes possible only when the karma of the Jiva has been exhausted.
In Hinduism there are different opinions from various schools of thought on Hell which is called Naraka. For some it is metaphysical , or a lower spiritual plane (called Naraka Loka) where the spirit is judged, or partial fruits of karma affected in a next life .
