The wheel of Karma is spinning
"What you give is what you get", "As you sow, so shall you reap", "You always get what you deserve"... Different words, same meaning. You are fully responsible for what happens to you. A good deed begets good Karma, while an evil deed adds to bad Karma, ensuring prolonged suffering. And sooner or later, your Karma will catch up with you, wherever you are. So says the Dhammapada, which draws from ancient vedic texts, amongst other things. Can you find salvation in a book, or in any form of organised religion for that matter? Can you buy Nirvana off a book shelf? Is there any hope for those born into the endless night?
