What is karma?

19th October 2023
5pm–7pm, UK time

£25 early bird discount, £30 full price

Karma is a tricky subject to grasp? How does karma continue from life to life if there is no person that continues from life to life? What makes actions good or bad? And is karma a form of fate or destiny?
These are some of the questions we will explore in this two-hour webinar designed for school teachers. It will be interactive with plenty of time for participants to share their own experiences of teaching karma in the classroom.

5/5

I wish I had this book when I was taking religion in college. This is one book that gives Buddhism in its basics and in an understandable manner. I recommend this book.

5/5

Great book. Always had interest in Buddhism and it’s rare to find a book that honours it as a way of life. This book is perfect for learning about the way of life within Buddhism.
