Deeds


Explanation:
Karmas are the deeds that we do.
As Bhagwaan Shri Krishna has stated in Geeta:

Karam kiye Ja Phal kee chinta mat kar e insaan.

This means that one should indulge in good deeds regardless of the results.

We are destined to get the results of our deeds(Karmas) as they say in English:

As you sow, so shall you reap.

karma


Explanation:
Dear Sunil,
you 'd use karma in it's original even in english as there is no appropriate alternative for the word in english .
karma may be said as actions performed by a common man.But karma is more than that much.karma refers to each effort and work that a man performs in life.All his works ,thoughts ,efforts etc. are included in it.
Particularly karma is used in shrimad bhaagwat geeta in a lots of shlokas.
most famous is
KARMANYE VAADHIKAARASTE MAA PHALESHU KADAACHAN.
It means that to do karma is what you are authorised for, and O Arjun you'd think of the karma and the way to perform karma.You 'd go ahead with your initiation without thinking of the result as result is already decided by myself(GOD).
I think I'm successfull in explaining you the meaning of karma.
So,if there is still any other problem regarding karma word,contact me at
