Episode five of the Ordinary Mind Meditation Podcast demystifies and brings clarity to the topic of Karma in Buddhist thought. Don’t worry, you’re probably not about to turn into a bug because of that mosquito you swatted yesterday. After understanding what Karma is, we practice looking into causes and effects on the level of the body and mind in every moment. We learn to let go of conditioning and to plant positive seeds in the garden of the mind for peace and contentment in every moment.

Once you’re familiar with the subject matter, feel free to use this meditation-only file:

My first musical influence was my grandmother Chaviva Dimenstein, who taught me violin. Even when I switched to guitar, because the violin was annoying to me, and finally to double bass, she still spent many hours every day helping me get better at music. Apart from her, I was blessed to study with many great teachers, a rare thing to find. Most of them were not bass players at all, but supreme musicians who showed me the most important thing- we don’t learn music in order to play an instrument; we learn an instrument in order to play music. I have been practicing Buddhadharma since about 2008. I started out in a Theravada context, again learning from outstandingly inspiring teachers, then I practiced some Zen, and now I study and practice Vajrayana (Kagyu) and Chan Buddhism (Linji Lineage of HsuYun). My highest aspiration and greatest inspiration is the actual pursuit of happiness- that means my own happiness as well as that of all others.
