Karma: Karma in Other Realms

                                                                  Q. I have heard that karma is counted only for those who are in human form and staying on earth. Can you elaborate on this?

                                                                  Bharata-varsha or the earthly realm is referred to as the field of activities, or karma bhumi. That is to say one gets the opportunity here to perform activities by which one can either accumulate pious credits or sinful reactions. In all the other realms, one is more or less expending their karmic account, good or bad.
