About this course

What is the meaning of karma, and how do you create yours? Contrary to what you might have heard, karma isn't related to judgment — in Buddhism, the literal meaning of karma is action. In this course, the venerable Lhundup Jamyang teaches that when you understand your true intention, your mind will become awakened to the ways in which karma is the cause of every experience.
