Karma: Cause of & Solution to All of Life’s Problems


People are continuously affected by the karma created by good and evil acts committed in past lives. However, it is important to understand that one can change one’s life in the future through one’s present good and evil actions. Nichiren Daishonin teaches that even if one possesses evil karma, one can attain a better life state through the benefit of Buddhist faith and practice.
