Karma a term used by the Buddhists to denote action, both meritorious and otherwise. When a human being dies, his Karma is transferred to some other being, regulating all the circumstances of his existence. Karma- visaya, one of the four things which, according to Buddhists, cannot be understood by one who is not of their number. Karma-visaya denotes how it is that effects are produced by the instrumentality of Karma (q.v.) The other three things which only a Buddhist can understand are,

(1) Irdhi-visaya, how it was that Buddha could go, in the snapping of a finger, from the world of men to the Brahma-lokas;

(2) Lokavisaya, the size of the universe, or how it was first brought into existence;

(3) Buddha-visaya, the power and wisdom of Buddha
