“In some religions of India, energy derived from the actions of an individual during his life, which conditions each of his successive reincarnations, until he reaches perfection”, aYes, the Royal Spanish Academy defines the word karma.
Simply put, this is something like: “Everything you give, good or bad, comes back to you.” And if we talk about karma, the case of Laura Reinoso (41) is the perfect example.
On the last night of 2020, this neighbor of the Spanish town of Cigales, in Valladolid, found an envelope with money -200 euros precisely- and immediately returned it to its owner.
But luck or, rather, karma, was on his side and he turned his gesture multiplied by … 375! Is that on Three Kings Day, with the number 3436, the woman was the winner of the second prize of the Children’s Lottery in Spain and obtained nothing more and nothing less than 75.000 euros (some $ 92,000).
Laura was working at the Bar Menfis, owned by her family, when she heard the news. “We had all the tenths on the table and when the number came out they had to tell me that it was my turn. I have gone crazy,” she told the site for 20 minutes.
When she was already convinced that she was going to lose the 320 euros she had spent on the tenths, this surprise came to her. And it is she herself who associates it with Karma. “They have given me more than 200 euros,” she said happily.
What will the award go to?
Far from wasting the money she earned on luxuries and eccentricities, the woman’s idea is to manage it well and not waste it. “I don’t want to retire at 67 to die. I want to retire at 53, I have a house for sale and with this money I will be able to do it and live well,” he said.
Touched by luck (or a good example of Karma), Laura confirms that although she will never forget this Three Kings Day, it is not the first time that fortune is on her side: in 2013 she was “one number” away from winning 1.8 million euros in the Bonoloto lottery.
In addition, this is the third time that a winning ticket has been sold in his bar: some time ago he distributed 10 million “of the old pesetas”, which at that time was a lot of money; Some fifteen years ago, also, a neighbor won 438,000 euros playing La Primitiva.
