Karma – mistaken denial of causes.
【Mistaken denial of causes is thinking that right or wrong behavior do not exist, and so forth.】
What is denying the cause? In Buddhism, what are all things [i.e. phenomena] ? They are emptiness and dependent arising. There is no inherent nature. Some would say that a person’s nature is inherently good, or inherently bad. There is no such thing! One will need to have created virtuous karmic cause previously before experiencing such virtuous and wonderful effects in this life. On the contrary, he will experience negative effects. Thus, there has to be this type of cause in order to have this type of effect. Through a marvelous cause, a marvelous effect is experienced. Now there are those who would say, “Hum! There is no use for you to do good deeds.” This is to deny the cause, to deny the cause.
