Karma: Why Me?

Karma - you deserve answers
KMC Houston
Due to our misunderstanding of karma, we create problems and suffering for ourselves and destroy our own happiness. By understanding and believing in karma, we prevent future suffering and establish a foundation for our future happiness. Come and enjoy a teaching, meditation and discussion and learn how to take control of your life by understanding karma. This workshop will be hosted in three sessions allowing us to touch on three themes. Since the event is being offered by video livestream, you will have the opportunity to view the sessions for one week after the broadcast. So you can watch at any time that fits your schedule. Understanding Karma (10 – 11:15 a.m.) Buddha’s teachings on karma explain the relationship between our mind, our actions and our experiences. Although we may have heard of karma and have a feeling for what it means, do we still hurt others through our words and actions? If so, perhaps we are still not sure about karma? The purpose of understanding and believing in karma is to prevent future suffering and to establish the basic foundation for the path to liberation and enlightenment. How karma works (11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m.) What actually makes something good or bad karma? What are the results of any particular action? Why am I having these experiences? Karma is like gravity; it’s not personal, it’s not singling us out. If we trip and fall, we don’t get angry with gravity. Understanding how karma functions puts us in control of our life. We can learn to transform, and avoid difficulty, thereby creating lasting happiness. Creating A Better Future (2:30 – 4 p.m.) Karma is just as good as it is bad. If we know how to create the best karma, we will experience a very bright future. We can be wealthy, respected, compassionate, even enlightened. Understanding karma, we can create the causes for whatever future we wish to have. Come learn how! The sessions will remain online for one week. You can tune in at your convenience.
