Teachings on Karma

Karma refers mainly to action, and specifically to the mental intention that initiates the action. In that regard, karma relates to the actions and potentialities left in mind from the moment of their completion to the time when they ripen and the individual experiences the results. When an action is completed, it creates a potentiality in the mind that ripens when the conditions are met (e.g., like a seed that ripens when it receives the proper conditions of heat and moisture). Whether a potentiality is positive or negative, whether it leads to happiness or suffering, depends on the type of actions committed by our body, speech, and mind.
