Current Existence Influence

Postby Darren_86 » Mon Mar 01, 2010 2:33 pm

Dear All,

I've just visited a website : www.waynedhamma.blogspot.com and came across this :

"According to Buddhist teachings Karma is but one of the 4 causes that cause things to happen the way that they have."

My knowledge on this is still very shallow and Im trying to find out what are the other 3 causes. Will appreciate if anyone could provide me with the links or any information on this matter.

Warm Regards & Sadhu,

Darren

Scroll down till you see "Niyama Dhammas".

:anjali:
Do not think lightly of evil, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the fool, gathering it little by little, fills himself with evil.
Do not think lightly of good, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.

—Gotama Buddha, Dhammapada 121-122
