Cause And Effect In Karmic Life- School? - Poem by nimal dunuhinga
[In Buddhism, karma (Pāli kamma) is strictly distinguished from vipāka, meaning 'fruit' or 'result'. Karma is categorized within the group or groups of cause (Pāli hetu) in the chain of cause and effect, where it comprises the elements of 'volitional activities' (Pali sankhara) and 'action' (Pali bhava) . Any action is understood as creating 'seeds' in the mind that will sprout into the appropriate result (Pāli vipaka) when met with the right conditions. Most types of karmas, with good or bad results, will keep one within the wheel of samsāra, while others will liberate one to nirvāna.
Karma is one of five categories of causation, known collectively as niyama dhammas, the first being kamma, and the other four being utu (seasons and weather) , bīja (heredity, lit. 'seed') , chitta (mind) and dhamma (law, in the sense of nature's tendency to perfect) .]-Wikipedia
When thunder storms shakes their innocent shacks
And the heavy raindrops hit on the tin roofs
O the saddest music erupts with their heart beats?
Breaskfast, a scanty meal
Bread crumb dip in the black sweepings-tea
How they taste with their Aluminium mugs?
Bright children go to school on barefoot
along the thorny paths and the home work
They have done by erasing the mesmerize arithmetic sums
using their dirty thumbs with saliva?
for my poet friend narain, j. p. with gratitude!
