Karma is created the moment we comment on someone. We must understand the workings of karma and be untiring in our efforts towards Buddhahood every day. While practising Buddhism, one is likely to slacken when one is not alert.
It is important that we have control over our state of mind in order to examine whether we behave like a Bodhisattva, to see whether we have many worries, and whether we are diligent.
When we attain the fruition of a Bodhisattva, we can control ourselves and exist in such a way that all our behaviours possess noble qualities.
Regard other people’s problems as our own. Always have the interests of others at heart and refrain from harbouring selfish thoughts.
Selfishness leads to distracting thoughts, which, if left unchecked, will make us more disturbed and miserable.
