What is "Instant Karma?" Meaning, definition, translation


"Instant Karma" means in German that a bad deed was punished immediately and only a moment later.

"Instant Karma" means "instant karma" in German. Instead of "Instant Karma" it can also be said in German: "God punishes small sins immediately."

"Instant Karma" works according to the structure that someone has done something bad (unethical or immoral) and is caught doing it, experiences an unexpectedly violent backlash, is unintentionally injured or unintentionally injured.

In “Instant Karma” videos, video recordings of such events are collected and published. “Instant Karma Fails” is also used here.

About instant karma

"Instant Karma" is a popular concept because it represents that a bad deed is punished by a force (and not willingly by a human). This force can be an ordering force like the police or a spiritual one like karma or even God. "Instant Karma" not only serves the desire for order, revenge and punishment, but also the desire for spirituality and belief in a higher power. Instant Karma stands for the fact that there is an (apparently) all-seeing force that reacts immediately when something bad, unethical or immoral happens.

"Instant Karma" stands for a universal equalizing justice that ensures that something bad is followed by something bad. However, “instant karma” of a causer usually arises from a poor assessment of the environment, from stupidity and from arrogance. Instant Karma hits those who are too sure, who believe they are better than others, and who feel unobserved. Anyone who kicks an elastic object shouldn't be surprised when it comes back. If you kick an animal, you shouldn't be surprised if it struggles. Those who provoke others shouldn't be surprised if they respond to the provocation. Anyone who cuts into the police on the highway shouldn't be surprised to be stopped.

"Instant Karma" also means that the cause of the backlash is the person who behaves badly. The causer is always to blame for “instant karma”.

That is why “instant karma” is often a question of perspective. Those who experience how another experiences “instant karma” will simply refer to this as instant karma. It satisfies the desire for order, balance and revenge. The person experiencing instant karma is more likely to be unhappy.

It also applies to “instant karma” that those who react to the bad deed do not have karma in mind, but a) enforce order (police) or b) react reciprocally (reacting to provocation with provocation). In particular, “instant karma” leads to objects or animals seemingly fighting back and taking revenge, but actually only showing a natural reaction.

The opposite does not apply to "Instant Karma". Who wants to cheat the karma, in which he does good in the hope that the good will happen for him, will mostly be disappointed. "Instant karma" happens to those who are not thinking about the karma or have an intention at the moment. This applies to good and bad actions.

Examples of instant karma

  • Someone wants to kick an animal. The animal evades and the person loses his grip and falls down.
  • Someone wants to fool another person. The trick fails and the person fools himself.
  • Someone is kicking an object. This springs back and hits the person.
  • Someone drives their car through a red light or drives past other road users. Suddenly the blue light goes on for the car behind it. It's the police.
  • Somebody attacks another person. The attacked turns out to be a police officer or martial arts fighter.
  • Someone is stealing from someone else. This turns out to be a police officer.
  • Someone wants to show off and fails.
  • Someone illegally dumps rubbish. There are old letters with the address in the trash. (Now the public order office or the police can identify the illegal waste disposal company.)
  • A person is being molested. The person defends himself and calls the police. (The molester thought he could get away with it.)
  • Someone is harassing someone else. A surveillance camera records every word.
  • Someone is stealing someone else's parking lot. A short time later, the parking lot stealer is interviewing the person from whom he (or she) stole the parking lot.
  • Someone steals from others and loses their wallet on the run.

About instant karma and the karma

"Instant Karma" is based on the spiritual concept that if someone does something bad, something bad happens. Likewise, if you do good, good happens to you. But with "Instant Karma" the time span between the bad deed and the "revenge" is only a moment.

The term "karma" should not be understood too western, because in Asian philosophies karma is not a vengeance, but a force that seeks balance. It is also not about a person having only good karma or only doing things that lead to good karma. In the end - in the sense of Asian philosophy - the point is that a person should no longer generate any karma at all.
