The concept or theory of Karma developed and evolved over centuries, and as it turns out, is complicated and not easily not completely understood. Karma begins with questions about how and why we exist and what happens upon the event of our non- existence.
Ancient Greek philosophers discussed the "Metempsychosis" or transmigration of the soul as the path to reincarnation or "reuniting with the flesh." According to Buddhist tradition, it was the Buddha who first formulated the doctrine of Karma in relation to the law of moral causation and karmaphala, the fruits or results or our life paths, as a way out of "samsara,"...and then things got complicated.
What Goes Around Comes Around.
I started Karma Carriers because I intended to make urns for cremated ashes or loved ones and pets.
The idea occurred to me after my favorite toy poodle's ashes came to me in a plain wooden box. Puppy (a not so creative name, I admit) was a bright, happy soul with a boundless curiosity and bravado. The wooden box just wasn't her. So I crafted a little hedgehog figuine with paper mache then handpainted designs for a happier urn. She rests on the shelf and watches us watch TV and other daily activities, just as in life.
