In this talk, Dharma Teacher Fred Eppsteiner speaks about the importance of understanding collective karma and how it is an essential thing we have to acknowledge. We all have conditions watering our seeds. Political forces, social forces, and many other conditions that are reinforcing people's seeds. Each of us carry these social historical conditionings and do not know it. But as we practice we begin to know this. Because the whole idea behind Buddhist practice is to realize and come back to this original state. And to realize that all the conditioning, all the view, all the ideas I have are simply views which are conditioned. And when all of this is stripped away, one can realize and experience that everyone is just like me. We do not exist in separation and independence, but are interconnected and inter-are with everyone else in world.
