Often misconstrued or oversimplified in popular usage, karma is in fact one of the most intricate and profound teachings of the Buddha. An accurate understanding of karma is indispensable to Buddhist practice, enabling us to see how we create and re-create suffering--and how we can cut through the cycles of cause and effect that perpetuate it.

How do we create karma? How do our intentions and actions affect the future? How does individual and collective karma manifest in our lives? Participants in this class will engage these and other questions as they become familiar with classical Buddhist teachings on karma, including the twelve links of interdependent origination, the Wheel of Life, and the Six Realms.

This program will be offered on Zoom and is open to everyone. Readings for the class will be drawn from The Future Is Open: Good Karma, Bad Karma, and Beyond Karma, by Chogyam Trungpa.
