    The law of Karma is not explictly mentioned in the Samhitas of the Vedas (the part of the Vedas heard from the gods). But there's still implicit mention of it even in the Samhitas, for instance in this hymn from the Tenth Mandala of the Rig Veda, which describes the benefits of generously and liberally giving Dakshina (gifts) to the Brahmanas who have performed a Yagna (ritual) for you.
