How is karma used differently in Jainism from its use in Hinduism?  How in both of these traditions does a person become free from the influence of karma -- or is that even possible?

Do you find Karma useful, could it be applied in your relationships?

Karma means a certain action, work or deed that influences the future of an individual. 

Jainism is a principle or religion that emphasizes nonviolence towards all living beings.

Hinduism is a way of life or religion practiced in India involving honesty, purity, self-restraint, and mercy based on karma.and dharma (right way).

Applying karma then to relationships,when you meet someone you spark a sense of familiarity or recognition about the other person  and repeat patterns of behavior The suggestion is to take charge of your own destiny and forge a new path in the spirit of nonviolence and the right way.  For example, when you love someone, you have to go through life with that person through good and bad times, and although it is painful at times, the pain is less when you accept it and you learn through experience what it means. In a marriage vow, you say in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, until death do you part. When you have a child or pet you love, the same principle applies.
