REGISTER TODAY for our next online/in-person Karma Lecture with Chief Priest

“If you wish to know the causes you have accumulated in your past existences, look at the effects that are manifested in the present. And if you wish to know the effects that are manifested in the future, look at the causes you are accumulating in the present …”

written by Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan

Buddhism Teaches Core Principle of Cause & Effect

Buddhism teaches the principle of cause and effect. It expounds that, if people are unhappy, then there is a cause for such unhappiness, and it is a result of their own doing. The reason why many of us have trouble with Karma and continuously struggle with the existential question “Why Me?” is that there is often a time lag between the cause and the effect. Our cause and effect connections most often are difficult to see and understand.

Make your new beginnings meaningful and deeply felt by embracing Buddhism. Buddhism teaches you how to make the right causes to achieve the best effects for your life. As the passage above explains, by observing the conditions of our lives today, we can understand the causes that we made in the past, and we are able to imagine the circumstances that we can expect in the future.

REGISTER TODAY to hear our Chief Priest’s lecture about Karma and explain how Buddhist practice lets you change your Karma and become happy and help others to do the same.
