Something simple about Buddhism

According to the teaching of Buddhism, delusion leads one to be reborn as animals. Delusion refers to failure to understand the truth of cause and effect or karma. Defaming the triple gem also renders one to animal realm.

Whether one believes it or not, the law of cause and effect is always true. Hence, one should refrain from doing something that will bring bad karma.

A true Buddhist will try to understand cause and effect or karma and will keep avarice and delusion at bay. In other words, he will donate generously to practice not being greedy, will not hate others even if others cause him to feel angry or to suffer and he will do things that will bring him good karma.
