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........
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.....
Thought this may be of some interest......
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.
