Jōshō precisely defines three concepts key to understand the fundamentals of the ture teachings on Samsara:
Defined as "set of elements brought together at a given time".
But... Which set of elements?
Besides its definition, Self has its own characteristics.
Self is characterised by dynamism. This is called the "no-ego doctrine".
Let's exemplify this dynamism:
See? This is what dynamism of Self is about.
This dynamism/movement is fueled by Desire and Craving.
Our desires and cravings shape our personal history and generate karma.
Karma is the Cause and Effect Law.
The term "karma" comes from the Sanskrit word "karman" which means to act with thoughts, deeds and words.
In conclusion, there are 3 types of karma:
"All that we think, talk or do will affect our personal history"
"A man in his daily life dies and is permanently reborn, according to the changes, tendencies and desires that occur in his mental flow and physical body"
Karma lasts forever and determines our birth in another life.
Now we have reached Rebirth.
At the moment of death, our personal karma determines the form and vehicle, the body that the mindstream will have in the next birth.
"Neither in heaven, nor in the midst of the ocean, nor in the caves of the mountains: there is no place in this world where you can hide from the consequences of your deeds"
Karma teaches us that we're fully responsible of what we are and what we'll become.
We deserve what happens to us even if it is difficult to accept.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
