业果 : 等流

那么等流果呢,什么叫等流?就是说跟这个因行相等的、同等的。由于这个跟因相等的继续而流,流是向前面过来。就是当因地当中造这样的,果地当中跟这个因相应的又来了。所以说,那个时候如果你杀生,使得人家寿命不能圆满的话,你这一生也感得寿命不圆满。所以「如其次第」,杀生嘛寿命得短促;你要偷了别人,那么缺少了,这一生你也资财缺乏;如果说你姦淫别人的妻女的话,你这一次你自己的家人也是如此;你诽谤了别人,这一次也诽谤你。下面,这一样一样东西,贪嗔痴的话呢,以前你这个贪嗔痴,现在呢也是贪嗔痴猛利。

【The Varieties of Karma】 - Causally concordant 

What are causally concordant effects?  What are causally concordant?  They are things which are equivalent, concordant to the causal deed.  It is like a current which concords with the cause and continues to flow onwards.  The flow continues forward.  This means if one commits an action in the causal period, then that which concords with the action will appear again during the effect period.  Therefore, if you have killed and caused others to shorten their lives, then you would live a short life yourself.  "You still experience the effects 【of nonvirtuous actions] as follows," if you have killed, you would have a short lifetime; if you have stolen, causing others to lack [resources], you would also lack resources in your life; if you had sexual misconduct with others' wives or daughters, this would happen to your family; if you have slandered others, others would slander you in your life.  Each of these is explained next.  If you engaged in covetousness, malice and wrong view, then you would be in a predominance of attachment, hostility and confusion now.
