【The Varieties of Karma】– The link between three mental poisons and karma
Therefore for everything, when you engage in the action, due to the varying weightiness of these characteristics, therefore, it will lead to varying weights of karma. When you kill, your mental state will also determine [the weightiness]. If the action was done with intense forms of the three mental poisons, then the karma will be weightier. For example when you kill, let's say a bug bit you, and without bearing an intense form of attachment or hostility, eh, you see it! Through instinctive reflex, "pa", you smash it. At this time, yes, you have committed the karma of killing, but this killing will not be as weighty. Then when you see your enemy, oh! You become bold with evil, you think of all sorts of ways [to harm your enemy], your hostility is very strong. Then this action will become very weighty. Similarly, for the scenario with the bugs, if you normally find the bugs very annoying, then when you see the bugs, your mind will develop great hostility. So with the same smash, it may be the same bug, the karma of the latter scenario will weigh more. The more intense the three mental poisons, the weightier are the actions.
