Content / Description

Nothing happens by chance, it is due to kamma. When caught in an unpleasant situation, one should reflect and dig into the heart to find the character tendencies that causes one’s kamma. The simple living in the forest is praised by the Lord Buddha for anyone wishing to practice simplicity. One must dig into the heart not once but many times to find our own character tendencies. By understanding, one be aware to apply sati and panna to weaken and finally uproot the character tendencies. When one is caught in a difficult situation, take the opportunity to reflect and gain insight in the working of kamma. One has to endure it and go throught the sufferings and pains be it mental and bodily due to the past or present actions.
