Publisher's Summary

The Buddha's teaching on karma (literally, "action") is nothing other than his compassionate explanation of the way things are: Our thoughts and actions determine our future, and therefore we ourselves are largely responsible for the way our lives unfold. Yet this supremely useful teaching is often ignored due to the misconceptions about it that abound in popular culture, especially oversimplifications that make it seem like something not to be taken seriously. Karma is not simple, as Traleg Kyabgon shows, and it's to be taken very seriously indeed. He cuts through the persistent illusions we cling to about karma to show what it really is - the mechanics of why we suffer and how we can make the suffering end. He explains how a realistic understanding of karma is indispensable to Buddhist practice, how it provides a foundation for a moral life, and how understanding it can have a transformative effect on the way we relate to our thoughts and feelings and to those around us.

well put together

I would recommend this well put together very informative clear can be very beneficial if you listen with an open mind . personally I don't hold his views on it but I understand far better "the Buddhist point of view". one thing I do feel compelled to mention is that in my eyes it seems That he holds strong to that point of view so in some parts I really felt that maybe a strange bias... enjoy

A little over my head

Most of the book was great. There were a few spots that were very deep. Possibly, I just couldn't understand being I've only began my study of the religion. I would recommend this book. There were several answers about the subject that were explained to my satisfaction.
