【Karma】- What to do if you are frightened after understanding karma and its effect?
When we understand the definitive relationship between karma and its effect, yes, in our minds, we will be greatly shaken. It can also be said that to those who are virtuous, this will bring tremendous encouragement. But to those who do not act accordingly to the Dharma, a great fear will develop. So here it tells us that we do not need to be so frightened, we need not be so frightened. This is because for an ordinary being to advance step by step, it is absolutely impossible for us to get to the goal in one step. We must follow the stages to advance slowly, advance slowly. And in the process of learning, one must first rely on the excellent teacher. From there, the first thing to do is to obtain the correct philosophical view. After one obtains the correct philosophical view, one strives to change and to practice. Practice to gradually, gradually clear away the previous erroneous, non-virtuous habits. These are the necessary conditions. Therefore, though you have heard and understood [the teachings], the actual practice is indeed not something that can be changed immediately.
