question about kamma

Post by mario92 »

Namaste all i have a question, lets say that i dedicate the merit to a specific purpose or goal, does part of the merit dedicated for that purpose rippen after some days? or it does rippen all in its totality after some years? I asked a buddhist monk and he told me that it will rippen after many years or a lifetime, but if that happen then in my position wouldnt be put to good use, because it would be when i am aged or old (it would be too late) What is your opinion?

There isn't a simple answer. What you think about determines how you feel. It determines your actions. Then the results come, but this also affects the way you tend to think. You can create new habits in your life in less than three months. Then you will get new results. The point of karma is how you make choices now.
