Since I was invited to collaborate at HWPL Heavenly Culture –World Peace – Restoration of Light WARP office for Slovenia European Union , I am glad to present my Dharma essay on this important subject . 5th WARP conference on skype was planned for September 25 . Since other two guest speakes : representative of Christianity /Catholic church and representative of Islam /Ahmadiya community could not attend on this date, next skype conference is planned for October 2 .
My Article was send to Korean Non government organisation in Seoul last week ,
To be shared with all students who will attend skype conference . For better understanding I added selected bibliography and E-learning curriculum with few questions . Interested students and researchers can answer these questions and sent it to me for evaluation .
As Ati yoga Dzogchen practitioner and teacher I explain about karma from the Ati Yoga Dzogchen View . Many , esp. intellectuals have difficulties to understand / comprehend direct Path of Dzogchen . The same is true for those who are too attached to gradual Path of Buddhism and new age followers .

As the Buddha Shakyamuni said : »I show you the Path, but liberation depends on you. »
Therefore we find in this Alive Dharma teaching quotation from Kunzang Monlam / Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra , helping us to gradually understand our pure Buddha nature beyond karma .
There is also inspirational quote from the Myriad worlds written by great master Jamgon Kongtrul .
To attain the State of Liberation one must study authentic Buddhist Dharma and get rid of wrong views . May all beings be peaceful and happy without attachment and aversion .
May the Buddha bless all and everyone with Bliss and Peace .

1. Teachings about good and evil in Buddhism
Ad 1) Description of good and evil in Buddhism :
OM SVASTI
May I start this treatise with quotation from the Pali canon of Hinayana Buddhism .
In this sacred text good and evil are explained in the framework of kamma (Skt. Karma) : WHAT IS KAMMA – »Volition is kamma« Anguttara Nikaya
The Pali term Kamma, literary means action or doing . Any kind of intentional action whether mental, verbal, or physical is regarded as Kamma. It covers all that is included in the phrase : »Thought, word and deed«. Generally spaeking. All good and bad actions constitute Kamma . In its ultimate sense Kamma means all moral and immoral volition (kusala akusala cetana). ….The Buddha says : – »I declare, O Bhikkhus, that volition (cetana) is Kamma. Having willed one acts of body, speech and thought. …Every volitional actions of persons, except those of Buddhas and Arahants, is called Kamma. An exception is made in their case because they are delivered from both good and evil. They are eradicated both ignorance and craving , the roots of Kamma. »Destroyed are their germinal) seeds (khina-bija), selfish desire no longer grow,« states the Ratana Sutta. This does not mean that the Buddhas and Arahants are passive . They are tirelesly active in working fort he real well-being and happiness of all. Their deeds, ordinarily accepted as good and moral, lack creative power as regards themselves . Understanding things as they truly are, they have finally shattered their cosmic fetters – the chain of cause and effect . » (1)
In Buddhism we mostly use the terms virtuous and unvirtuous (kusala and akusala ) motivation , not good and evil as in theistic religions . In Mahayana Buddhism more emphasis is placed upon motivation of individual . As Jigme Lingpa , glorious master of Vajrayana Buddhism said : »If the motivation is good, Path and result are also good…« . Most important aim of everyone is to avoid all negative , unvitruous actions of body, speech and mind , to nurture positive thoughts, positive energy and positive deeds . Therefore the Buddha taught about ten positive , virtuous and ten negative, unvirtuous actions to gradually overcome ones karma which is cause, condition and effect. Aim of Buddhists is to become the same as Buddhas , to be liberated from the cyclic existence or samsara . As the Enlightened One , the Teacher of gods and men said : »Nirvana is Peace« .

Ad 2) Does your Scripture says why mankind has good and evil in their heart ?
Let me explain from the View of Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra (Tib. Kunzang Monlam ) :
» HO ! Appearance and existence, samsara and nirvana have one Base,
But two paths yield two results.
They are wonderful display of awareness or ignorance .
With the wish-fulfilling prayer of Samantabhadra
May all be truly accomplished and enlightened in the palace of Dharmadhatu .
The Base of everything is unformed .
Self-existing wide space beyond expression has no name of samsara and nirvana .
When you realise this you are a buddha .
When you don*t realise this ,
You are in samsara wondering sentient being .
May all beings of three realms realise the nature of inexpressible Base .
Also I, Samantabhadra have realised the nature of the Base without causes and circumstances .
This is in the Base self-existing awareness not obscured by mistakes of outside and inside ,
With confirmation and rejections, not covered with the darkness of unattention .
Therefore this self-existing display is not obscured by mistakes .
For one who remains in the state of self-awareness there is no fear,
Even if the three exustences are destroyed .
There is also no attachment toward five desirable qualities .
In self-existing knowledge without concepts
There are no material forms and five poisons .« (2)
The above question : Why humanity has good and evil in their heart is somehow weak formulated . Verses of the Wish-granting Prayer of Samantabhadra explains that the Base of every being is Samantabhadra primordial Goodness of self-existing wide Space of Dharmakaya . These Verses need to be deeply contemplated and can not be explained in intellectual ways ….

Ad3) What is the reason for the evil deeds of mankind never dissapear , although the teaching of religions has been taught for the long time ?
All seven billions of humans living now on this olanet are part of human realm of cyclic existence or samsara . Buddhists sacred texts explain that ist a fortune to be reborn as human being with freedoms and endowments to practice Buddhist path of liberation from samsara and toeard enlightenment . Humanity has collective karma and each individual human being has also personal karma . Nowdays human beings are too much negative influences of mass media which promote fear , dissaster and corruption . Independent research and famuous author from UK , David Icke explains very well about the selfishness of science , corruption of mass media , dangers of genetically manipulated food and much more . (3)
Religions are nowdays too passive in addressing problems facing our planet , but there are few exceptions like the 14th Dalai Lama and few others . Nowdays religions are part of capitalist neoliberal social structure , they care too much about their real estates and investments into building churches, temples etc . Religions don*t care enough about climate change and people suffering in natural dissasters . Religions are mostly submissive to polititians and don*t have enough confidence and wisdom to offer practical solutions to problems of our planet . HH the Dalai Lama is openly against wars and weapon industry and we appreciate him for his courage and wisdom .
Religious leaders must become true activists for peace , they should join anti-globalisation movement and clearly oppose harmful trade agreements like TPP, TTIP and others which are promoted by polititians of globalisation. Yet, many religious leaders even don*t know anything about this ! Religious leaders should be opelnly against weapon industry which makes prophit from wars !
14th Dalai Lama conference Brussels 2016

14th Dalai Lama is often saying : »We are all responsible fort he future of humanity . Let us contribute as much as we can …«
We Buddhists are encouraged by our sacred Texts like Myriad worlds written by Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche , quoting from the Penetration of Sound tantra :
»The pristine wisdom of intrinsic awareness is present in the body like oil is present in the sesame seed. The luster and radiance of the body are pervaded by the moisture of pristine wisdom….«
This verse describes true nature of our Heart from Ati Yoga Dzogchen View :
»In the palace of the jewel of the heart is a composite jewel of eight facets, the entrances;
Five pristine wisdoms and five dimensions of awakening ,
Five energy winds and five channels of consciousness :
Everything has a fivefold character .
Inside the head , heart and channels the Reality of unfabricated purity is present .« (4)
The aim of Buddhist meditations andcontemplations is to overcome unawareness, attachment and aversion , recognise our Primordially pire Buddha nature with five wisdoms as described in this sacred Verse . Buddhist meditations and contemplations surely contribute to evolution of humanity .
