Why Me? Understanding Karma
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 1 April 10.00am – 4.00pm
All our problems and difficulties arise from our past experiences, and past causes, our karma. Our actions today all cause future effects. Learn about how we can purify our negative karma and transform our present day actions, into positive causes for the future.
Why do bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people? Where does suffering come from?
These are common questions and in this day course we explore the answers in the ‘mirror of karma’, also known as the wisdom of cause and effect. Through understanding these universal principles and learning how to recognize how karma functions in our daily lives we can gain real confidence in our ability to change our future and understand our past. This wisdom is important for everyone because we all want to be free from problems and experience sustainable happiness!
“The purpose of understanding and believing in karma is to prevent future suffering and to establish the basic foundation for the path to liberation and enlightenment.” ~ Modern Buddhism by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
