【The Varieties of Karma】- cause and effect of karma
If we have truly taken faith in the Buddha, we should know that everything happens in accordance with the dependent arising and emptiness. There isn't anything which is inherently a certain way. Things also do not occur because of incompatible causes such as a divine creator or others. Therefore, the section before has particularly explained this, for many of us who are learning the Buddha's teachings, though we’ve learned the teachings, we have not truly followed what the Buddha has told us to do. The Buddha told us not to commit these causes and that we should commit those causes but we may not listen to Him. However, [we would listen to] what a worldly diviner tells us, or even all sorts of concepts instilled upon us by this world, these are all [just] worldly concepts. Now we would speak about science and there are all sorts [of concepts]. Ah! Science says this. As soon as we encounter some information, we would grasp onto it with great attachment. We would always feel that ...as if we are really correct. This is something we should understand. When we learn the teachings, what is the first thing that we should recognize? What? It is our previous mistaken concepts. We should recognize and come to realized that all things operate under the law of cause and effect.
