According to Buddha’s own experiential findings, the minds and lives of all beings play out within the natural law of karma, cause and effect, specifically in terms of happiness and suffering. Everything that a being thinks and says and does sows seeds in their mind that, just naturally, will ripen in the future as their own experiences – His Holiness the Dalai Lama sometimes refers to the law of karma as “self-creation.”

Given that we create our own reality, we need to learn the basic principles of this law – how we create karma and how to purify it – so that we can ensure our own future happiness.

Discovering Buddhism is an FPMT study program aimed at giving Buddhist and non-Buddhist students a solid footing in the practice of Mahayana Buddhism. The program is not meant to be an academic study of Buddhism, it is meant to change our daily lives through experiential training in meditation and thought transformation.
