因果与业报 / 到底谁在轮回?
Cause and Effect, Who is being reincarnated?

UNIBUDS WEEKLY Chinese Dhamma Talk
能融法师 Venerable Neng Rong

This week, we will be exploring the topic “Karma, Cause and Effect. Who is being reincarnated?”. We hear about karma very frequently, but what is it and how is it different from fate? When we talk about reincarnation, who is the one being reincarnated? Do we possess an immortal soul that transmigrates into a different body after death? Come along to this week's Dhamma Talk to find out.

P.S.: If you don't understand Chinese but wish to attend the class, feel free to contact me so that I can arrange a translator to guide you through the class.

Right or Wrong, Is there any other way?

UNIBUDS WEEKLY English Dhamma Talk
Rod Lee

During some parts of our life, we may have to make life-changing decisions which could change the course we take further down the road. But once these decisions are made, we could still be in doubt with whether the choices we have taken are right or wrong. But what if it is neither right nor wrong? Perhaps there is a middle path which can give a win-win solution?
