Classification of Karma

(A) With respect to different functions, Karma is classified into four kinds:

1. REPRODUCTIVE KARMA

2. SUPPORTIVE KARMA

3. OBSTRUCTIVE KARMA OR COUNTERACTIVE KARMA

4. DESTRUCTIVE (UPAGHATAKA) KARMA

(B) There is another classification of Karma, according to the priority of effect:

  1. WEIGHTY (GARUKA) KARMA.
  2. PROXIMATE (ASANNA) KARMA OR DEATH-PROXIMATE KARMA
  3. HABITUAL (ACCINA) KARMA
  4. RESERVE OR CUMULATIVE (KATATTA) KARMA

(C) There is another classification of Karma according to the time in which effects are worked out:

  1. Immediately Effective (ditthadhammavedaniya) Karma.
  2. Subsequently Effective (uppapajjavedaniya) Karma.
  3. Indefinitely Effective (aparapariyavedaniya) Karma.
  4. Defunct or Ineffective (ahosi) Karma.

(D) The last classification of Karma is according to the plane in which the effect takes place, namely:

Evil Actions (akusala kamma) which may ripen in the sentient planes (kammaloka). (Six celestial planes plus one human plane plus four woeful planes = eleven kamaloka planes.) Here are only four woeful kamalokas.

  1. Good Actions (kusala kamma) which may ripen in the sentient planes except for the four woeful planes.
  2. Good Actions (kusala kamma) which may ripen in the Realm of Form (rupa brahamalokas). There are four Arupa Brahma Lokas.
