Fundamentals in Buddhism-Karma in Buddhism.and the orthodox perspective-of the this nonsense of karma come and come again
Only the quality, that is the social surrounding, the physical appearance and the mental abilities of a person are fixed by the deeds of his previous existences, but in noway his actions.
If you see that other people are suffering, and you're in a position to help, you focus not on their karmic past but your karmic opportunity in the present: Some day you may find yourself in the same predicament that they're in now, so here's your opportunity to act in the way you'd like them to act toward you when that day comes.
It's not about fatalism
In Buddhism, rebirth is part of the continuous process of change. In fact, we are not only reborn at the time of death, we are born and reborn at every moment.
However, the Bible was not speaking about karma but about the judgement of God The full Biblical verse is: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever aman soweth, that shall he also reap. -- Galations 6:7.)The concept of karma is nothing more than a cunning attempt to entangle Soul in the laws of physics and thus make followers believe they are dependent on the guru for their release. New Agers like to cite karma as the law of personal responsibility, when in reality it is the opposite, a mechanism which allows someone to behave as he pleases, in the full knowledge that at some future date everything will balance out and no fundamentalharm has been done.Since New Agers believe the law of karma could not operate to full effect over the course of a single lifetime, they propose a long series of lives over which Soul'matures' and works off its bad karma. The end result, supposedly, of this long evolutionary process is God-Realization, the great illumination in which Soul finally becomes a god. Reincarnation is therefore marketed as a flawless mechanism of self- perfection, whereby the immaturities and defects in an individual are gradually refined and eliminated. This beguiling philosophy is designed to ensure that no one makes a serious effort toward their personal salvation since, as New Agers argue,everyone is saved from the outset, so who needs a Saviour? Again, Lucifer isachieving a major objective when he gets someone to accept this sinister philosophy.The New Age movement has tried various ways to market reincarnation among Christians. Chief among these is hypnotic regression, where the subject is placed in atrance-like state and induced to remember episodes from his 'past lives.' This is anextremely clever trick since hypnosis, by its nature, exposes the subject to demonicinfluences. The implantation of 'memories' is thus easy to achieve. New Agers also like to cite cases of children who recall their past lives. This is highlydisingenuous since children are very suggestible and liable to accept all kinds of myths and stories as part of their personal reality. If they are members of a family with a leaning toward the occult, the child may also be exposed to unclean spirits andimplanted with 'memories' based on verifiable fact.It is worth noting that the great architect behind most New Age philosophies, Madame Blavatsky, did not herself assert the principle of reincarnation in her first major work,
. If the fact of reincarnation is such a central tenet of New Age thinking,then why was it not mentioned even once in that monumental tome (over 1470 pages)? The reason is simple -- it had not yet been identified (in 1877) as an importantingre dient in the toxic brew which Lucifer was preparing for the unwary.If you have any doubt about Blavatsky's allegiance to the rule of Lucifer, you migh tlike to note that the name she gave to her theosophical magazine was
and that the publishing house established by her disciples to propagate her works was initially called Lucifer Publishing Company (later changed to Lucis Trust). Her books,
The Secret Doctrine
are riddled with Luciferian philosophy.
Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
People foolishly think they can draw nourishment from certain New Age beliefs, incombination with their Christian faith, but this is not possible. As the Bible says,"Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?" (James 3:11). If a movement is Luciferian in any particular, it is Luciferian all the way through.
