DISCOVERING BUDDHISM: All About Karma (Video and Questions)

Tuesday 21 September @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

Discover how karmic cause and effect functions, and take control of your own future. Put in place all the causes for happiness, and implement practices to purify negative karma.

This module aims to introduce you to the Buddhist concept of Karma, or internal cause and effect, and what it means to take personal responsibility. Using examples from everyday life we will analyse how our actions determine their results and cause us to experience either happiness or suffering.

Discover effective tools to accumulate merit – the cause of happiness and success – and purify mistaken actions done in the past with the Four Opponent Powers. In addition, explore ways to become adept at dealing with life most effectively and thereby take control of your future.
