12. law of causes and results

  The Buddhism says that all of us are affecting each other. Whether we can live happily depends on our own behaviors. In other words, we can be happy by making others happy, which is called “the meritorious causes and results”. On the other hand, we will accumulate sins causing our sufferings in the future by distressing others.


*1. law of causes and results: 因果の道理
