All about Karma
Discovering Buddhism Module 6
From Tuesday 17 January 2023, online
Margo van Greta
"Your whole life is controlled by karma, you live within the energy field of karma. Your energy interacts with another energy, then another, and another. That’s how your entire life unfolds. Physically, mentally, it’s all karma."
Lama Thubten Yeshe

This module aims to introduce you to the Buddhist concept of karma, the law of cause and effect, and what it means to take personal responsibility. Using examples from everyday life we will analyse how actions determine their results and cause us to experience either happiness or suffering. We will explore purification practices and establish a daily meditation on karma.
This is a 6 session module, part of the 14 module Discovering Buddhism course.
During the course we will use teachings, meditation and discussions.
You will receive online reading material, access to audio recordings, a 26-minute video, and access to short review quizzes.
Over 2500 years ago, Shakyamuni Buddha gained direct insight into the nature of reality, perfected the qualities of wisdom, compassion, and power, and revealed the path to his disciples. In the 11th Century, Atisha brought these teachings to Tibet in the form of the lam-rim – the stages on the path to enlightenment. The lam-rim tradition found its pinnacle in the teachings of the great Tibetan saint Lama Tsongkhapa in the 14th Century, and these teachings continued to pass from teacher to student up to this present day.
When Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche transmitted these teachings to their disciples, they imparted a deeply experiential tradition of study and practice, leading thousands of seekers to discover the truth of what the Buddha taught. This tradition is the core of Discovering Buddhism.
All of the FPMT study programs and especially Discovering Buddhism are presented within a context that reflects FPMT “Wisdom Culture.“
Discovering Buddhism is a two-year, fourteen-module series that gives the student a solid foundation in the teachings and practice of Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism.
