Karma is a very hard concept to explain. It is the main philosophy of Buddhism and Hinduism. The word itself means "act" or "action" in Hinduism and "result" in Buddhism.

In Hindu, it means "all human dramas as the will of God as opposed to present - and past - life actions." and in Buddhism it means "the group or groups of cause in the chain of cause and effect"

The meaning is a bit different but both indicate Thai people that they have to act good otherwise their bad act will come back to them. As following this, some people believe that their poverty is the sin from the past life so they are suffering now.
