There are the waves and there is the wind, seen and unseen forces. Everyone has these same elements in their lives, the seen and unseen, karma and free will.
karma the basic meaning - action - is simple. yet the concept of karma is quite complex given all the teachings around karma.for me karma is all about the relationship between action and consequence. generally associated with buddhism and hinduism, I believe the concept of karma infuses the world view of most ethical (and spiritual) schools of thought - within christianity is a lesson about whatever we sow we also reap....sounds like karma to me.
bodhisattva khasarpana lokeshvara - the bodhisattva of compassion - or would that be kompassion?
