Question

I meet sometimes mentally or physically handicapped people,

I live alone with him and his sister who, by the way, doesn't cause any trouble. He drags a heavy karma and I feel impotent. It is nevertheless a good boy with whom I can have a dialogue and who respects me but he has ...


Karmic return.

Two questions: Firstly, I have practised for eighteen years, I haven’t stopped saying to myself that I am not in reality. What about reality? Secondly, Master Deshimaru taught that we go back inevitably to the infernal cycle of transmigration if our practice is not mushotoku. Do we follow this karmic return until our death? Thanks, all the ...
