An End to Conflict: Teachings on Karma & Compassion

When problems arise in our lives and people behave badly, we typically become angry, place blame, and sometimes react in harmful ways. With a deep understanding of karma, we can quickly drop our painful minds and begin to act thoughtfully and skillfully. But karma is one of those terms that we often throw around without fully knowing what it is about.  Do we really understand it? Let alone believe in it?

An understanding of this law of cause and effect is not only useful for helping us make good decisions in times of conflict, but is critical to our own present and future happiness. In this series we will learn special methods for freeing ourselves of the negativity that is the cause of all unpleasant situations that arise in our own lives. Yes, that’s correct. All of them.
