Course in Taunton

July 23rd, 2014 | Posted by web admin in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Aileen Glen, the Taunton meditation class teacher, is holding a short course on 30th August on the topic of Karma.

The law of karma is a special instance of the law of cause and effect, according to which all our actions of body, speech and mind are causes and all our experiences are their effects.

If we understand the law of karma we shall understand how we can control our future experiences by abandoning harmful actions that are the causes of misery and by practising virtuous actions that are the causes of happiness.
