  Karma   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Many people hope that their bad karma can be discharged through ritual acts rather than through the suffering of karmic consequences -- that bad karma can even be ritually turned into good karma.
But if bad actions are themselves caused by previously earned bad karma, this seems rather pointless or unjust, either simply magnifiying the penalty for some originally voluntary action, or punishing someone for actions over which they have no control.
Since karma is and is the consequences of action, however, it might hardly seem possible to avoid karma.

 Good Friday Club - [Sunday Herald]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
And it may be due to this perceived lack of community that tens of thousands of people seeking new company have joined the Karma Army – a group of people from around the world who, every Friday, perform a random act of kindness to a complete stranger.
Indeed Wallace, who is the comedian Dave Gorman’s best friend and co-wrote the hit book Are You Dave Gorman?, believes that the Karma Army has allowed people to let go of their adult inhibitions and allow themselves to interact with complete strangers that they would have otherwise walked past in the street.
Saunders agrees, saying the fact he can blame it on the Karma Army and ultimately Wallace, means that he can walk up to a stranger and hand them a box of chocolates without feeling too embarrassed.
