For Balinese Hindus, Karma Phala is the spiritual principle that each action has a consequence equal in force, and similar in form. No one, real or fictional, is immune from karma – from intensive care to species conservation, this principle is at work. Our panel analyzes the inescapable weight of decision and action, and who bears the consequence.

Bagi orang Hindu Bali, Karma Phala adalah prinsip spiritual di mana setiap tindakan memiliki konsekuensi yang sama, dan bentuk yang serupa. Tidak seorang pun, nyata ataupun fiksi, yang kebal dari karma – dari perawatan intensif hingga konservasi spesies, prinsip ini bekerja. Panel kami menganalisa bobot dari keputusan dan tindakan yang tak terhindarkan, dan siapa yang menanggung akibatnya.
