Four kinds of karma

Being under the illusion that the world around us is not just hostile to us, but, moreover, unfairly hostile, we deprive ourselves of the opportunity to develop. Because if a person takes the position “I am perfect, and the world is imperfect”, such a worldview concept deprives a person not only of the opportunity to develop, but also of the very meaning of such development. After all, why make efforts if the cause of suffering is the injustice of the world?

Even 2500 years ago, Buddha Shakyamuni said that disbelief in the law of karma is the most severe ignorance into which a living being can fall. In the Sutra so called, the Sutra on the law of Karma, the Buddha explains in detail to Ananda and other disciples that man himself is the cause of both his happiness and his suffering.

Standing on nails: benefits and harms

“Disease comes as quickly as a wall falls, and leaves as slowly as silk is unwound,” says an ancient Eastern wisdom. The problem is that any disease first manifests itself at the energy level and in this state can progress for many years. And only when the imbalance in the body reaches its peak, the disease goes to the physical level and becomes noticeable to man. But most often it can be seen in the early stages — it always begins with an imbalance in the Outlook and/or energy of the person. And the treatment of any disease should be approached not only from a physical point of view. There is another good saying: “to Treat a person with pills is the same as to smear green paint on the legs of the bed on which the patient lies.” The only, perhaps the difference is that this procedure, unlike modern pharmaceuticals, at least no harm.

Everything is conditioned by the perception of the one who experiences this or that event. The perception of reality is influenced by the so – called “Vritti”-fluctuations of the mind, about which Patanjali writes in the yoga sutras. There are five types of Vritti. This is what Patanjali writes in the Sutra of the sixth Chapter of the first: right knowledge, wrong knowledge, fantasy, dream and memories. One type of Vritti – Viparyaya is false knowledge.

In Sanskrit “viparyaya” means “false knowledge”or” wrong knowledge”. The concept of “Viparyaya” Patanjali reveals in the Sutra of the eighth Chapter of the first. A. Bailey’s translation of the Sutra reads as follows:”Wrong knowledge is based on the perception of form, and not on the state of being.” That is, with this perception, the person behind the form does not see the essence.
