The Law of Kamma & Rebirth


The fundamental teachings of the Buddha are founded on the Law of Kamma - the Causal Law of Action & Reaction. On the day of his enlightenment, he realized this Causal Law that caused men to be reborn in this world of samsara (sufferings) again and again. By further investigation on the cause of it, he saw the linkage between one life to another; dependent arising (and cease) of all things.

the Good beget Good , the Bad beget Bad,
the Good and Bad beget Good and Bad,
no Good nor Bad beget no Good nor Bad.
