Discussion on Karma

Postby phuff » Tue Nov 02, 2010 9:38 pm

I am a student gathering opinions of modern Buddhists on ideas of Karma and Rebirth and would greatly appreciate any insight and responses. Thank you!!! :)


How does Karma affect your daily life? Or how [i]should[i] it affect your daily living? How do you apply karma and rebirth to your life?

What role does Karma play in rebirth? Do you have to believe in/understand Karma to approach ideas of rebirth?

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I like this forum because a random stranger can mention the word "karma" and the forum doesn't explode like somebody tossing a piece of meat to a pack of wild dogs. :)
