Exploring Karma & Rebirth

Exploring Karma & Rebirth




"While the traditional Buddhist doctrines of Karma and rebirth may present themselves in a somewhat archaic, even naive, guise, they nevertheless communicate timeless truths about what it means to be human. We bear a responsibility to our future self and to other human beings through what we do. We have the power to transform the world for good or ill. It is through the compassionate exercise of this power that we fulfil our responsibility to life and transcend the confines of our ordinary mind.
"

Description
Exploring Karma & Rebirth
Nagapriya

Exploring Karma & Rebirth helps us to unravel the complexities of these two important but often misunderstood Buddhist doctrines.

This thought-provoking book 
clarifies these traditional Buddhist teachings, examines them in relation to their cultural origins, considers how they are still relevant today, and offers an imaginative reading of what the teachings could mean for us now.

Above all,
Exploring Karma & Rebirth insists that, to be of enduring value, these doctrines must continue to serve the overriding aim of Buddhism: spiritual awakening.

Cogent, knowledgeable, and penetrating
A cogent, knowledgeable, and penetrating discussion of this critical Buddhist theme. Nagapriya quotes judiciously from traditional sources and provides clarifying contemporary examples as he deftly cuts through scholastic doctrine in an effort to answer the question: “How can a modern Western practitioner usefully understand the Buddhist teachings on karma?”
