PAST – Skype Lecture: The Law of Cause and Effect (July 13, 2017 | Thursday)

Buddhist teacher Frank will give a live lesson on Buddhism via Skype on the topic: The Law of Cause and Effect.

There is no effect that happens without a cause; and wherever there is a cause, an effect will always follow. To put it simply, seeds not planted will never grow; seeds planted will never fail to grow.

Buddhism, in particular, teaches us in detail about the matter that concerns us the most, which is the relationship between the cause and the effect of our fate or destiny.

Learn about the Law from the beginning in this talk.

Lecture is free and newcomers are welcome.
