Karma in Buddhism, Explained in the Human Language That You Can Understand!
Many might think Buddhism is the most “peace and love” promoting religion on earth nowadays because of their theory of karma that tells people to do good deeds for best results. Yet everything seems logical and good at the surface, but not until you get deeper into the brainwashing path then you will find out the truth of this rotten apple. However, not many will be brave enough to speak out when they find out the truth and many had been abused, scream at, scolded, shout at, or even threatened when they ask their masters or elder brothers in the religion about their doubts. It is just so common that when you start to question the theories in Buddhism or kind of confused because you saw how they contradicts to their own actions, you will seek help from the more experienced ones in your sect or even ask your master about it and end up with nothing but abuse, screaming, scolding, shouting or even threatening with verbal or physical methods. Later on, these former Buddhist will leave because they can’t find a way out and they cannot convince themselves to believe this ridiculous religion anymore, they all chose to leave quiet and just move on. How many dare to speak out and raise their voices to sober those who suffer from the same thing? Not many. That is why I am writing this post today – to bring the truth to the world and let you see what the biggest scam in the world right now is about. Karma, the biggest mind controlling scam in the world is worse than Hitler, it is like a shiny and glossy rotten apple. That theory looks good on the surface but when you start to eat it, you will see worms and moles inside after a few bites. Scary enough, you had already eaten a few bites down your throat and by the time you realize it, you are already poisoned.
Karma, in the theory we are going to talk about today which is the main theory that had driven many into the Buddha’s toilet bowl in the past. The word “Karma” is actually not something from the religion of Buddhism. If you ever read the history of Buddhism, the founder of Buddhism “Siddhārtha Gautama” is actually a student or a believer of the old Indian religion -Brahmanism. Some people mistaken that he was originally from Hinduism but then it is the truth. Brahmanism is an old Indian religion that is related to Hinduism and so they share about the same belief. So you can get the clue here, the founder of Buddhism had taken whatever he learned in Brahmanism and flip it around to make it his own. He pulled all the deities from Brahmanism and Hinduism down and place his nice word of “Buddha” up above all of them. That is the system of Buddhism which now so commonly known as the six paths of reincarnations. They put the deities in Brahmanism as the second highest level – the jealousy gods. Not only that he betrayed his own religion to form a new sect that pulled Brahmanism down the ladder, but he has also stolen whatever he learned to modify it into his own and so Karma is one thing that he took from Brahmanism and Hinduism as well.
Basically the main concepts of Buddhism that people are preached with right now cannot go away from these basics – the four noble truths, six paths of reincarnations, karma, prayers and rituals. These are the essence of Buddhism’s promotion right now. In the article of “Taoism VS Buddhism Concepts” we ad explained the four noble truths, the six paths of reincarnations and a bit of karma as well. Here we will go into karma and explain how it relates to other basic theories of Buddhism.
I hate to quote all that Indian terminologies and so here I will put things in a human-reading language instead of a research paper for all to understand with ease. Basically, the concept of Karma in Buddhism is saying that one’s action will lead to results, therefore you do good deeds then you gain good karma, you do bad things then you gain bad karma and fall into the karma debt. You can basically say it is a linear equation that they are looking at. The line is straight and then there is a zero point, a negative side going down and a positive side going up. For the majority of people in India, who lack education, this theory is just as easy as chopping firewoods for them to understand. If you promote anything more complex or require more wisdom to digest, they will all get confused. Therefore, the Buddhist has found the right way to specially target at their audience – the poor and non-educated class people.
The linear equation of Karma is like a point system, you do good things on the list, you gain points and your numbers go up. You do bad things in the list then you gain some negative credits which deduct your points and it’s like you lose money. So if you do too much bad deeds, your account will fall in debt. Easy enough, everybody who lives in the society that is based on monetary factors will understand it well because it is just like your bank account.
Now this part seems to make sense to people because it sounds very logical as you can relate to your bank account and so you will understand it and think it is right. Here let me give you the “advance” theories that they will later dig into and you might start to taste the worms and moles.
Based on the theory of reincarnations in Buddhism, we have 6 paths to start our game of life.
1) The Buddha (Sanskrit, Pali: Deva) domain 天道/神道/佛道
2) The jealous god (S., P.: Asura) domain 阿修羅道
3) The human (S. manuṣya, P. manussa) domain 人道
4) The animal (S. tiryagyoni, P. tiracchānayoni) domain 畜牲道
5) The hungry ghost (S. preta, P. Petta) domain 餓鬼道
6) The hell (S: naraka, P. niraya) domain 地獄道
As you can see, it is as clear as it is, the lower you are at the more suffering, negative and bad you are. The theory of “every living being is equal” in Buddhism is already failed with this system of reincarnation around. How equal is it to put animals below human beings? Aren’t human beings also a form of “animal” as well? Well, the Buddhists are like that, they always contradicts themselves.
Going back to the Karma theory here, the Buddha said that if you suffer it is because you are in debt with your karma account. If you are happy and good, it is because you have good karma. Many people are in suffer back then because of the bad politics and government in India and so everybody wants to seek for a way out or a way that can let them escape from reality for a second. Therefore, this theory of Karma had been a nice cocain for them at that time to relieve some stress and brainwash themselves.
The easy way to explain the theory is – you want to be good and happy? Gain more karma credit and you are out of this suffering place. You see our tourist guide? We got six levels in this building, the food is great in the pent house and top level! We got red wine, hot chicks, golden dishes, good music, nice views, swimming pool, tennis court, golf clubs and everything is good at the top level but you need at least a credit of 10000 points to enter the door to that place.
Well no problem, if you only got 3000 points, you are still doing well! You can go into our second top level which is not as good but then you still get your nice bedroom, some okay food and drinks, some nice clothing, radio stations with some okay music and so on! It’s still a great place, but just not the best.
Right now you are at this level below that which are for those who only have 0-3000 points to enjoy. This level is very bad, you don’t get all those things mentioned above but then at least you can live a life and work your S off to get some money. It’s better than the animals already which get slaughtered very quickly like the pork on your dish, or get controlled by human like the horses you rides. So at least you get some freedom! If you are in the negatives or in debt too much, you can be in the lower level below which is the animal class!
There are 2 lower levels below too, it’s even worse than animals, can you believe it? Wow! I didn’t want to be an animal already, it’s so scary and suffering to be slaves of human and even get slaughtered for dinner! Now you are saying there are even levels that are even worse than that?
The scare tactic then kicks in. Everybody wants to strive to the top as much as possible, grab onto the rope hanging down from the helicopter, you don’t want to fall onto the ground! Now everybody wants to go to the top. Buddhism promotes people to not be greedy, but see how they already are very greedy and having so much desire now at their own place? It is just that they are not greedy about money doesn’t mean they are not greedy about othe rthings. Their desire is just not on money but now on what they call “Karma” which is another point system or credit system that they treasure more than the real money we look at nowadays.
This scare tactic then makes them all want to strive for the top of that 6 level system. They all want to go to the top and become the Buddha or Gods. Why are Buddhist so into Karma? It’s not because they are good minded people, it’s because they scared to fall down in the chart only. This is a scare tactic of brainwashing and if you ever notice that the six paths of reincarnation is not even real, or at least nobody can prove it is real. It’s a belief only, which is made up and told to others to convince them to belief. A made up system, concept or theory which can be put into actual use and taken effect on many people in the religion – wow, that is scary.
What does it mean by “good karma” or “bad karma” deeds in Buddhism is also not like what we think it was as well. The good can be good just because they say so. The bad is bad just because they say so as well. So you can be helping out your friend doing some chores at home and cleaning their house for them. At the end, your master can say you created bad Karma because you helped your friend to clean up and you took away his chance to suffer from the dirtiest and so he cannot suffer to pay off his own karma debt instead. Everything is ridiculous and unexplainable in Buddhism when it comes to determining what is good or bad. It really depends on how your master say and explain it to you. They are all like con man who has a big long tongue that can twist the reality and facts in split seconds and present it the way they wanted it to be. There are no standards at all to what’s good and what’s bad. But one rule of thumb is – if it is for Buddhism’s good, it is for sure good. See the pattern?
The more you fall into this Karma theory, the more you are confused about life when you start to ask your master about what you should do and not do. The cause and effect then don’t seem that logical because they then start to put in all that this life, past life and future life for you. The craziest part about Karma is that the bills don’t show or take effect until you die. So basically what you do this life only leads to mostly the results of the next life. What you are suffering this life is mostly because of the things you did in the past life. Everything doesn’t take effect instantly. Now you are more confused. Haven’t you already suffered in hell before to reduce your Karma debt before you come back to this life as a human? OH man, epic failed for the Buddhist theory. Forget about it, Buddhism’s Karma is not real, and their 6 paths of reincarnation is not real as well – it’s all a brainwashing scam with scare tactic to control the minds of people only. Yes there is always a consequence of things you do but then it doesn’t carry on or even have to carry on to your next life! Buddhist used a common logic with their won evil theories to back it up and making it look logical for you only. Think about it, when you say something bad to a friend, they already instantly dislike you and that’s the “effect” you can from your cause by saying something bad. Nature don’t lag and they don’t delay. Cause and effects are instant and they don’t carry on like a credit card bill. Use your logic to think about it again, when you lie to someone, you already lied and your mind doesn’t feel right afterward too because you know you lied. That is already the consequence. Then later they found out about your lie and hate you for that, you suffer already. They can’t carry this on to the next life to haunt you back. Don’t be silly. Yes, of course, the Buddhist love to talk about their own Karma because it creates a very nice way to escape from reality by saying that your bills this life don’t have to be paid until the next life comes. Now everybody is happy and they can spend like crazy this life – who cares about the next? If you observe the norm with credit cards now, they all promote the same thing. Spend today, pay later, everybody loves credit card. Same thing Buddhist did to brainwash you as well – no wonder India is so poor, where is the wisdom? Look at their people, how advance are they in the world? They are just always in poverty. If you want to go for Buddhism, I suggest you decide what you want for your future first. It’s not as good as it seems.
