I know the you reap what you sow is like karma... But can karma come back and maybe kill someone? or does it mean like you do bad things and bad things happen but not death?

  • It means bad things happen when you do bad things, nothing to do with death.

  • That's not really how karma works. It's about action/reaction and cause/effect. Our Karma is created by our own actions or how we react to what happens to us. What others do is their Karma. It's not really about moral reward or punishment or something external from us. We create our own Karma.

    Different Dharma religions may look at the idea of Karma in slightly different ways, but here's brief explanation of the Buddhist view of Karma.
