Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

Effect of Action is Modifiable by new Action:



Painful effects of past wrong action is reduced by future right action.
Painful effects of past wrong action is enhanced by more wrong action.
Pleasurable effects of past right action is reduced by new wrong action.
Pleasurable effects of past right action is enhanced by more right action.

Behaviour (kamma) is almost always mixed: Sometimes good, often bad!
Later effects are thus similarly mixed: Sometimes pleasure, often pain...
Good begets good and dilutes/delays evil. Evil begets evil and delays good!

Kamma can be improved!
