While working on mokṣa and karma for the karma-series blog posts, I happened to come across a podcast containing a thoughtful analysis of the concept of karma by Sharon Salzberg, a Buddhist teacher. I find her responses in the interview on this topic really capture the idea of Karma and of its relevance – specifically, that it is meant to be applied to oneself and is not to be used to pass judgement upon others! I also like her analogy to epigenetics, that karma is not fate but only predispositions. I recommend listening to this podcast. This podcast is in the religion section of an e-Paper.
The subtitle for the podcast is –
If you are talking about someone else’s karma you are doing it wrong.
