Discovering Buddhism

All About Karma

In this module, we will examine the essential facts of karma (the law of cause and effect), developing a clear understanding of how it works.

We will discuss effective tools for accumulating merit (positive potential, the cause of happiness and success) and purifying past negative actions. Together we will explore ways to become adept at dealing with life most effectively, thereby taking control of our future.

This is the sixth in a series of 14 modules covering the complete Buddhist path to enlightenment. Students may join at any point in the cycle. Discovering Buddhism is designed for students who wish to deepen their understanding of fundamental Buddhist concepts. The program is designed to provide an experiential taste of the Buddha’s teachings and the skills we need to make our lives most meaningful.
