Poll: Karma - Heaven or Hell?

There is an Indian religious concept called "The principle of karma", many of you might have heard of before. It says that the intentions and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual. It's not a matter of human revenge, karma takes care of it. It's a kind of higher - some would say - divine justice.
