Akushala-Mula — The 3 Unwholesome Roots in Buddhism #228
Zeroing in on a trio of particularly horrific negativities in the human mind, Buddhism draws attention to the cause of so much of the suffering that plagues human beings in the world. Certainly, all suffering cannot be removed, since it is the very nature of relative existence to host it. But the main causes for unnecessary suffering can and should be destroyed, and at its very roots as well. The fitting image on this chart will help convince living beings — awakened and unawakened alike — of the good sense and reason to do away with such unwholesome roots as soon as humanly possible.

Cause & Effect in the Mind #140
Knowledge available in Western scientific circles con cerning cause and effect is limited mostly to physical bodies in space, whether space it be space on Earth or outer space. There is no provision made for inner space. This limits the human mind in its efforts to find the sources for what occurs to embodied beings as a result of their actions on the physical plane of existence. Known as “karma,” the results of actions perpetrated in space and time originate in the mind; repercussions coming to the soul do not just appear as a matter of randomness or luck, etc. Therefore, the inwardly quassative being will come to find that “thought is the father to the deed,” as a wise Western saying evinces. Knowing of this direct correlation between thought, action, and karma, leaves the pathway open for the spiritual aspirant to pursue and attain to freedom from unforeseen and undesirable effects springing from subtle causes.

The Four Kinds of Karma #13
Unknown to most beings, cause and effect and the suffering it brings begins in the mind, i.e., “The thought is father to the deed.” Even more obscure of knowledge is the fact that karmas is at the root of a chain of lifetimes that beings suffer and enjoy, interminably. A complete study and ongoing meditation upon the laws of Karma will reveal its four types and four shades, clearing up many of the mind’s doubts and helping the seeker of truth attain to freedom from the weights of cause and effect.

The Seven-Fold Road to Ruination #294
In Sri Krishna’s Bhagavad Gita, one of the most exceptional scriptures of the world, there is a system that outlines the many questionable and ill-advised pathways that living beings can take. It consists of twists and turns on the road of life that take the soul away from its original purpose for taking on a body on earth in the first place. The chart shown here is replete with wisdom quotes from many of the world’s luminaries which both advise and guide the aspiring being away from such dead-end trajectories. In brief, when one has access to the expansive continent of Brahman, set within seven chakra-countries of Consciousness lined with all manner of roads to realization, why would these dingy back alley-ways of dense darkness seem appealing at all?
