Episode 09 – Karma & Protection – #Basic Truth Series

In this episode we connected with Munisha, Catherine Hopper who connected with us from Sweden. We spoke about “Karma” and talked about its meaning and misunderstandings. Since Munisha is a Safeguarding Officer professionally, we found examples and challenges in our conversation that also dealt with how Buddhism is practiced in the West.

The main contents of the episode

  • Actions have consequences. Everything we do, we say or think has an effect. Observe it in your experience!
  • Karma is one kind of conditionally in buddhism – not all are in our control. But whatever you come into this life with – you have a choice. You always have a choice.
  • We have to acknowledge what we feel but we do not have to act immediately.
  • Safeguarding policies are a practical application of the ethical precepts.
