Difference Between Fate and Karma

Fate vs Karma

Fate and karma are very much related and sound the same. Some people think the two to be the same but they are very much different.

Karma can be described as something that you get based on what you put out. On the other hand Fate, which is also sometimes called as destiny is that will happen inevitably.

Fate can be called as something that is predetermined. It is something that has been written in your life even before you were born. By fate, it has been already decided that you shoul be born to certain parets, born at a ceratin place, have a wife and children and like that. Fate is that one cannot change.

On the other hand, Karma is the result of your actions. If you do something good, you will get good tings in return and if you do bad things, you will only encounter bad things.

Fate means that there are no choices in life; it is predetermined. On the contrary, karma means that there are choices in life. You have the right to choose the good and bad karma. But in fate, there is no choice of learning these lessons of life. Karma is related to the soul whereas fate is not.

When karma is related to one’s actions, fate is related to god’s will. In Karma, it is the human beings who have the control whereas human beings have no control of fate; it is the will of god.

It can also be said Karma comes from within a person and fate comes to you without your knowledge. Unlike karma, fate is something that has been already decided. You have control over Karma but you don’t have control over fate.

According to Hinduism, Karma or the actions that you do in the present life is passed on to the next life. But fate is not passed on to the next life.

  1. If I murdered someone in this lifetime, wouldn’t it mean that in my next life someone would murder me? according to the laws of karma.
    Which would mean my the death in my next life would be predetermined (fate) would it not?

  2. I think you should put the word karma in place of fate….and fate in the place of karma

  3. Fate is our life you can’t change it. Karma is negotiable.

  4. They are exactly the same thing. it’s the way how people explain Karma makes it sound different than fate. but it’s not. If you have to experience something in your present life and in your mind you think that it is caused by your “previous life karma” (if you had one) then you will think you did it to yourself (without any real knowledge, it’s just your assumption). You cannot change or do anything about it because you have to experience it. But if you think it’s fate then instead of thinking that you did it to yourself, you will think that God did it to you. Well at least God has mercy to forgive sins and change people’s life back to normal. In karma there is not such a thing. you are doomed. :))

  5. A lot of people put in decades of positive work towards different goals only to find out that they have failed over and over and can and do end up in misery and or despair. They have routinely put positive energy into something yet have gotten nothing but negative results.

    This is why I am not a fan of the idea of karma. It is another term that I’m sure has validity but by no means should it be a guidepost for life.
