People say it is very hard to know oneself. I must admit I do not know myself very well. From the UCM reading, I feel I now know myself deeply; I know my strengths and weaknesses, and even all the health hazards that await me if I am not careful! I believe that if I apply myself diligently to the task, work on my weaknesses and develop my strengths, I will be happy and successful. --- Pan Qi Wei
According to “The Tibetan Book Of Living And Dying” by Sogyal Rinpoche, the word “karma” literally means “action”, and karma is both the power latent within actions, and the results our actions bring. Karma is the natural law of cause and effect. There are many kinds of karma. We will only be concerned with individual karma in this post.
What is individual karma? In simple terms, it means that whatever we do, ---- with our body or speech, or in our mind --- will have a corresponding result. Each action, even the smallest, has repercussions.
