Karma and Causality

The Buddha described only two of his teachings as categorical—i.e., as applicable across the board: the teaching on the four noble truths, and the teaching on the distinction between skillful and unskillful action. This second distinction is actually the more basic of the two, forming the framework for understanding all of this other teachings. This daylong workshop will focus on exploring the meaning of this distinction, its connection to the Buddha’s teachings on causality in general, and its implications for the practice: both on the cushion and in daily life.

The second part of the talk was not recorded.
