– Giving rise to a thought immediately creates karma.
– Karma has been in existence since beginningless time. You simply do not have enough time this lifetime to examine them all. It is far more productive to spend time to meditate, recite sutras, recite the Buddha’s name etc…
– The (false) self revolves in the Reincarnation Wheel. The True Self is unproduced and therefore is not subject to the Wheel.
Unlike the worldly knowledge which can be self-taught, Buddhism requires a knowledgeable teacher who can help you uncover your inherent wisdom through cultivation.
