What grows to a lie?

Postby Hanzze » Tue Jan 11, 2011 1:28 am

Dear Friends,

All starts with a lie, if we stop lying, we would be there.

What about expressions which are growing into a lie. For example: You tell somebody something, which is the true, but it is retold in a wrong way. What would be the karmic effect on the one who told it first.

Does his action ends as long as it is retold?
Just that! *smile*


BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Nate sante baram sokham _()_

Dear Hanzze, this is a bit speculative, but I will try.

If you tell a lie, it is your intention and wrong speech, not anybody else's.

You inherit the kamma for your intentions and actions.

If someone else passes on your lie, not knowing it is a lie, and has good intentions, it is still your lie.

It doesn't become the other one's lie, because he does not intentionally try to deceive.

But if he knows it is a lie, and still passes it on, to help you deceive, he is an accomplice and shares into the kamma of lying.

In short: You have to know that you are lying, and you have to intend to.


Is this helpful? :smile:
