  • Re: Does karma ALWAYS happen

    Just to clarify @vinlyn, I think you mean the results of karma always happen. Karma just means any "intentional action" undertaken so I don't think any of us could argue that this doesn't happen at present for us :)

    Anyways, I have heard that only a Buddha can fully understand the workings of karma and its results. So I'm out on this one........

    Question:

    Does the extensive media coverage of these kind of incidents help overall?

    Do you think it glorifies it to some and inspires some would be terrorists to act?

    For example, a man drove through a pedestrian mall and killed six people in Melbourne earlier this year. There was no link to terrorism, he was just crazy.

    Obviously there was a lot of local news coverage but if he'd been flying an Islamic State flag out the window of his car, I am sure the international media coverage (if there was much) would've been far greater!

    Here's another q (didnt know if it should be a new thread)

    Is there any value in repetitive chanting? I found a YouTube clip where the Vendana ("namo tassa...") is repeated 108 times. Ive used it a few times focusing on the spoken words...what do you guys think?

    No-one can answer that for you I'm afraid. Just give you an opinion on what works for them.

    As a Westerner, I'm used to asking questions about things I don't know and someone giving me a definitive answer.

    I've discovered on this path that you need to learn to answer these questions yourself.

    Try things out and see what works for you.....

    Good luck!

  • Re: MANCHESTER

    A young girl I work with came in to the office this morning sporting a black eye.

    She stood in front of a young Muslim girl who was being verbally assaulted by an older woman for what happened in Manchester, and copped a punch in the face for her troubles!

    It's a sad world we live in.
