Does it really matter what our past karma was?
there have been quite a number of people
who argued that it is not important what our past karma
some say it is pointless to speculate becos buddha said
that besides karma, there are other factors involved.
let's take an example.
if a baby boy is born to a woman who was raped, he will
have a difficult start in life. His father, the rapist is unlikely
to be in his life. And his mother will have to deal with the
ok, so according to buddha, this boy was born in this
situation partly due to his past karma. yes, buddha also
said karma is not the only factor.
yet, karma is the only factor that is within our control.
so, do you still think it is a waste of time to think about
how your past karma has contibuted to your present predicament?
