Understanding Karma to Create the Future We Want
Monday 16 May @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
In this short course we will learn what karma – internal cause and effect – is and is not, how it functions, and the ways it influences how we experience the world. We will then come to understand how to use that knowledge to work in harmony with this natural law to obtain temporary and ultimate happiness and freedom from suffering.
To achieve fully the most supreme peace, which is freedom from all suffering and the removal of every single obscuration, it is necessary to actualize completely the whole path, the Dharma jewel. This starts by correcting each tiny action: avoiding all negative, harmful actions and practicing all positive actions. This is called “observing karma.” Therefore, understanding karma is the root of all perfections and happiness and the very foundation of the path to enlightenment.
In this one month series we will look at the topic through the lens of short teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, or Lama Yeshe. Eddie will also incorporate western viewpoints, and lead us in checking with our own experience with questioning and discussion.
