Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is entitled “A Dharmic Framework for Total Transformation”, an excerpt from the talk “Karma and the Consequences of Our Actions” by Ratnadharini.

There is nothing wrong with our experience, it’s how we interpret it. The Five Niyamas help us understand that total transformation is possible by shifting our habitual means of seeing things. Is it random? Is it fate? Why do the conditions that arise in our lives, arise? Where does the possibility of change lay? What makes total transformation possible? A Dharmic framework gives us the key…

The fourth talk in a five-part series from Tiratanaloka’s retreat on the ‘Four Mind Turnings’ of the Tibetan tradition. Here Ratnadharini takes us a little closer into the whole, often misunderstood area of karma in Buddhist thinking. She draws out the important details of the process that we call ‘actions and consequences’ – but her emphasis is always on putting what we learn into practice in real life, with other real people.

Talk given at Tiratanaloka Retreat Centre, 2005

This talk is part of the series The Four Mind-Turning Reflections.
