Karma and Transcendence
An Introduction with Keith Rowan
6.45 pm. (after the 6 pm. evening meditation) Wednesday 5th. December
The word Karma is used widely in our society to express many different ideas - Destiny, Fate, Fault, Consequences of Action. The Buddhist view of Karma is vast in its effects and scope. Similarly, the word Transcendence is widely used and again, the Buddhists have a particular view. Simply speaking, Karma means 'activity' or 'how things happen' so in that case, what is transcendence?
In this talk Keith will open an investigation into these two subjects and how they are related. Though the talk will be from a Buddhist perspective, the subject is universal. It is not a matter of belief but of a study of 'how things are in themselves'. Therefore, the talk could be useful for anyone regardless of their beliefs. Having said that, the matter is complex and the talk may result in more questions than answers! All are welcome to join in.
