【The Varieties of Karma】- Environmental effect
“The effect on top of the primary (主上果) or the environmental effect (增上果)”. This “primary” means what is primary. On top of what's primary, there is also the "environmental" effect. This means that...usually in the True Aspectarian School, there is an analogy for this. It is much like a farmer, after you've sown the seeds for grains, there will come a time for harvest, like [the time for] harvest. In other words, with whatever that you have done, certainly with what relates to you, there will be payback. Therefore, after having carried out many actions in this world, the payback comprises of the fruitional effect spoken earlier and the causally concordant effect. Then externally there are other paybacks which is called the resultant person's resource effect or the environmental effect. Regarding the resultant person's resource, the "resultant person" is the person who committed the actions [in the past], the "resource" is the resource you will use. This mainly refers to the external environment, which is our dependent payback [i.e, external things that we depend on].
