业果 : 造作等流

说,「造作等流」,它又叫真等流,这什么意思呢?是说你因地当中,是有善心相应的,到果位当中,它还是这个。平常我们起心动念,前一个心念是善的,后一个念头继续地下去,继续地向前面的继续不断地流衍,继续不断地向前面推衍,是前念、后念辗转相生,而这个辗转相生的前后,它特质相同的,这叫等流因果。我们刹那刹那地延续,一直不会断绝,从前一世到这一生,从这一生到后一生,就这样。

【The Varieties of Karma】-  Causally concordant behavioral effect

This says "causally concordant behavioral effect."  It is also called the real causally concordant effect.   What does this mean?  That means if in the causal period, you develop a mind that accords with virtue, then in the effect period, this type of mind will still be maintained.  Normally in our arising thoughts, if the previous thought is virtuous, the next thought will continue to be the same, and it will continuously flow forward, continuously flow forward.  The previous thought and the next thought will continue to [revolve and] develop.  The thoughts developed from the previous to the next are of the same characteristics.  These are called the causally concordant causes and effects.   We will continue on moment by moment.  We will continue without a moment of pause from the previous lifetime to this lifetime, from this lifetime to the next lifetime.  Just like this.
