【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.
