Tsai - Making Karma

 
Tsai Wen Chin
Presents at Mountain Palace
The Mystery Underlying Human Living
Wednesday June 29  2:00 pm
 
Outline for the speech on Jun 29

The mystery underlying human life is the phenomenal “karma.” Making karma (= reacting to one’s perception “deludedly”) will result in the following three mysterious happenings:

1. Reinforcing spiritual delusion
2. Triggering the karmic law of cause and effect
3. Constituting reincarnation

1.    (Spiritual delusion) A person’s perception in life deludes him to take his physical body and its history as the totality of him and all others as the objective world he lives in and deals with. This blinds him from the truth of who he is in life so as to also block the way back to Heaven for him after the end of this life.
2.    (The karmic law of cause & effect) Every time his reaction to what he perceives from outside becomes a causative command to himself (in the spiritual level) to receive the same “intention” of the current reaction coming from outside as an external situation for him to experience and deal with in the future.
 3.    (Reincarnation) His present perception is confined and defined by his current karma, while his current karma is derived from his reaction to the perception each time in the past. This forms an incessant, self-producing (chicken-and-egg), cycling situation for his life to continue, even after the end of this one.

(To be continued next time: THE SOLUTIONKnowledge & Practice)

The Big One: 'Large scale motion' detected along San Andreas fault


Large scale motion has been detected along the San Andreas Fault line, thanks to new analysis of existing data that could help predict ‘The Big One’ in the future.
Previously uninterpreted data showing vertical movement of the fault’s crust detected several millimeters of uplift and subsidence in surface areas as large as 125 miles.
While these hotspots were predicted in models before, this is the first time scientists were able to block out white noise and other diluting factors such as precipitation and local surface geology.

Students making a replica of Fort Ligonier

Seventh-graders at Ligonier Valley Middle School are using their math skills to learn about history.
The students are making a replica of Fort Ligonier using measurements they took at the 18th-century fort, coordinating its layout and determining the scale of the 24-structure model.
“They've done a really nice job,” said Sarah Doris, math instructor for the nearly 100 students working on the project. “Every 38 of an inch represents a foot on the actual fort. We went to the fort in the fall and got all the measurements.”

Ahi Tuna Steak - Chinese Style with Vegetable and Rice
Eating fish just once or twice per week may reduce your chance of dying from a heart attack by a third, says MayoClinic.com. Tuna is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, among other valuable nutrients. Tuna steak is very different than the canned version, and is often served cooked rare, crusted with spices or sesame seeds.

The Meaning and Purpose of Life - A Free Guided Discussion

Tsai Wen Chin
Presents at Mountain Palace
The Meaning and Purpose of Life
Tuesday June 7  2:00 pm
Tsai will lead a discussion based upon the following outline:

THE MEANING AND PURPOSE OF LIFE

PART ONERealizing the Secret of Life

The Secret Hidden under Human Living
1.          Human life sustains in the ever repeating process of perception and reaction as in a loop. For a person, because of not realizing the makeup of his perception, the reaction to it becomes karmicthe so-called making karmano matter he reacts with good deed or bad deed, under goodwill or evil will.
2.          Making karma (= karmic reaction) will unavoidably cause three happenings to a person:
(1)         Triggering the karmic moral law of cause and effectEvery karmic action/deed will bring a karmic return (retribution) of good fortune or bad fortune to experience in the future of either this life or future lives.
(2)         Reincarnation (rebirth of life)It will create further karmic perceptions to drive the person to react to them ignorantly again so as to form the unceasing continuation of this life and future lives.
(3)         Ignorance (spiritual delusion)A karmic reaction will reinforce the person’s ignorance of his true SELF (the actual spiritual agent which lives a person). He will become kidnapped by his karmic perceptions in every moment of life, as in a dream, to be sometimes happy, sometimes suffering, and all together, to be ignoring the very truth of who he is, who others are, and who God is, so as to suffer in the endless process of life and death.
