【The Varieties of Karma】- An example of a virtuous projecting karma with non-virtuous completing karma
This says that when one is in the happy realms, even though his projecting karma would project him to a happy realm, but even in this happy realm...I'm sorry, he may not have limbs, may be blind and ugly, may have a short life span and be poor. These are all terrible. Why is this so? It is because he had created nonvirtuous karma. What is this type of nonvirtuous karma? It is the completing karma. Therefore, though his projecting karma was virtuous, but his completing karma was nonvirtuous. We have said earlier regarding the root cause versus the completing (consummate) cause. Does everyone remember this? Root cause is the projecting action. The completing (consummate) cause determines whether things are consummated once you get there. Suppose your projecting karma, the root cause, is virtuous, then you are led to the virtuous realms. And you have also done virtuous karmas to bring consummate results. Then, not only will you be born in the virtuous realms, you will have complete resources in everything that you do and so on in this virtuous realm.
