Title: Karma - Why do things turn out the way they do??
Time: 19:30 - 21:00 pm
The law of karma is a special instance of the law of cause and effect. Karma means ‘action’, and refers to the actions of our body, speech, and mind. Every action we perform leaves an imprint, or potentiality, on our very subtle mind, and each imprint eventually gives rise to its own effect.
On this Friday Night Lecture, Gen-la Kelsanga Khyenrab will explain the law of karma, the idea that every physical, verbal or mental action we perform plants a seed, or potential, in our mind that eventually ripens as an effect. Negative seeds ripen as an experience of suffering, while positive actions ripen as an experience of happiness.
Through understanding the law of karma we can begin to create for ourselves the kind of life we want by creating the right kind of causes, by learning to think, speak and act in a consistently wise, considerate and positive way.
Optional supper before the lecture £3.
