Why Do Bad Things Happen?

Part of the Buddha, Please Tell Me! Series

What are your questions about life and what does Buddhism have to say?  The ancient wisdom of Buddhist teachings gives a refreshing perspective that encourages us to look at life differently. We can solve daily problems, find real inner peace and enjoy deep happiness from practicing these time-honoured meditations and transformative ways of thinking.

In this class, we will focus on the question:  Why Do Bad Things Happen?

We often think that bad things happen without reason, or by chance, or we blame others for our hurt.  Understanding Karma is the key to freeing ourselves from problems and suffering. All we have to do is stop having negative minds that create negative actions and maintain the positive minds that are the cause of our own and others’ happiness and peace.
