Every so often, we find ourselves doing, saying or thinking things that may be hurtful to others, even causing harm and suffering. This results in negative kamma. As Buddhists, what can we do about it? How can we dilute our negative kamma? The answer does not lie in praying to the Buddha. He cannot intervene in your kamma; only you can. Having the right understanding of our responsibility for our kamma, both good and bad, is an important first step.
