Geshe Pema Dorjee

Have you ever wondered about Karma?

Karma can be a confusing, challenging, and sometimes debated concept, yet it is at the root of understanding Buddhist tenets. It is widely-used in popular culture, yet its nuances are seldom understood. Fully appreciating the effect of causes and conditions will deepen and enrich your practice and understanding of Buddhism.
