Mind control and Kamma

Postby steve19800 » Fri Nov 01, 2013 11:35 am

Hello Bhante and all members,

I've just read interesting article about mind control and WWIII. I'm wondering though if your mind is controlled by someone, and then you are programmed/ instructed to kill for example. Is the kamma will be the same as if you yourself who do the deeds? For instance, if someone is a relatively good person and then for instance his/her mind is controlled/brainwashed, what would be the consequences of his/her deeds?

Here is a some sources:

Thanks all, please share your thought.

Steve, an article based on a report of a person with severe psychiatric problems who has admitted times when she didn't know what the truth was, is not really worth the time and energy, is it?

As for your question, my understanding is that the fruits of kamma largely depend on one's intention. If the intention to harm, etc was not there, then one is not directly culpable. There may be some responsibility for recklessness, negligence or other omissions.

Sorry just checked her background. But please check other links also. Illuminati, chip implanted in your head, etc.

If your brain is re-conditioned through torture, etc. does it count? He will become a 'new' human being I guess?
