Sure nearly everything is based on karma and that is what we all know.
Is there anything not based on karma?

The reason one can not attain Buddhahood accidentally is because everything IS based on karma. ie it takes the application of intentional action in order to achieve Buddhahood. The potential is there but it cannot develop without our intentional effort.
