Moscow: The Buddhist Idea of Karma
May 2 @ 7:00 pm - May 3 @ 9:00 pm PDT
“Cause and Effect: The Buddhist Idea of Karma,”
2 public talks with Ven. Thubten Chodron 7:00 – 9:00 pm each night
In describing the logic of how happiness and suffering arise in our immediate experience, Buddha emphasized the two key factors: (1) our mental states and the (2) actions that we undertake under their influence. These actions leave a particular mental imprint, which later ripens as different types of joy and discomfort. Describing this Buddhist idea of karma over the course of two evening talks, Venerable Thubten Chodron will introduce the participants to karma’s general characteristics, as well as briefly explain the more subtle points related to how the continuum of karma is retained in our mind.
