In Buddhist belief, the law of Kamma-vipāka is of great importance. In a discourse (A.N. VI.63 Nibbedhika Sutta) The Buddha said “Intention, monks, is Kamma I say. Having willed, one acts through body, speech and mind”.

Vipāka is the fruition of Kamma

According to the seed that’s sown,
So is the fruit you reap therefrom,
Doer of good will gather good,
Doer of evil, evil reaps,
Down is the seed and thou shalt taste the fruit thereof.
Saṃyutta Nikāya
