Karma ( Kamma ) and Chaos :
New and Collected Essays on
Vipassana Meditation

 

In Karma and Kamma Chaos a scholar (professor/psychiatrist/meditation teacher) and his son examine the ancient Kamma doctrine of karma in the light of modern Chaos Kamma Theory. Though most religious and moral philosophies express a Kamma belief in some law of "you reap as you sow," from the limited perspective of an individual this Kamma seems to be contradicted by accidents, luck, and an unscientific, mystical cosmology. The idea that there might be a Kamma higher moral law that functions independent of capricious.

These eight essays explore the interface between psychiatry, science, and the timeless teachings of the Buddha. Kamma Drawn from the personal experiences of a therapist and practitioner of Vipassana meditation, this work explores meditation’s similarities and differences with psychotherapeutic and scientific endeavors. In the title essay, parallels are drawn between the atomic synthesis of free choice and lawful consequence in Chaos Theory and karma, offering contemporary insights into one of Buddhism’s core concepts. The empirical roots of meditation, its relevance to daily life, and the challenges and benefits of daily practice of Vipassana meditation are also addressed. Practical examples for continued observation outside of formal meditation retreats guide readers in incorporating Buddhist practice into daily life.
