Karma or Karm is the self-effort or work put behind all actions. Luck is the result of self-effort, including self-effort from past lifetimes.

  • Bhagwad Gita:

Should keep doing your work, but do not have hopes to enjoy fruits of the labour.

  • Ashtavakra Gita:

The Body is just an observer, the Soul is the do'er. The Body should not desire to enjoy the pleasures of labour by the Soul.
