Breaking the Chain of Karma
Our capacity for transformation is extraordinary. Understanding karma gives us the power to change our lives. By understanding that our happiness comes from our positive thoughts and actions, and our unhappiness from our hurtful thoughts and actions, we are given the tools to redirect our lives.
Buddha’s teachings on karma explain the relationship between our mind, our actions and our experiences. Although we may have heard of karma and have a feeling for what it means, do we still hurt others through our words and actions? If so, perhaps we are still not sure about karma? The purpose of understanding and believing in karma is to prevent future suffering and to establish the basic foundation for the path to liberation and enlightenment.
