Your Karma and Dharma
Whether or not you believe in the Hindu tradition of karma and dharma, these concepts can be useful and meaningful to us in our daily lives. The saying What goes around, comes around may be most familiar to you and explains how actions and decisions you make can affect what occurs in the future. In a work environment, people are challenged to make ethical decisions in the face of social, financial, or leadership pressures. Those involved in the Enron scandal obviously made poor ethical decisions. Some may interpret this as negative dharma that in turn gave these corporate executives negative karma resulting in punishment both in this life and the next. In this Discussion, share your experience with these concepts, either in the workplace, where conflict and ethical decision-making can sometimes be challenged, or in another situation.
