From Discourse II: "Sadhana Pada- On Spiritual Disciplines"
II.12. KLESA-MULAHKARMASAYO DRSTADRASTRA-JANMA-VEDANIYAH.
'Karma, whether worked out in this or future lives, has its roots in the pain-bearing afflictions'.
The law of Karma states that every action brings about an equal and opposite reaction. Whatever is done to other will return to the doer in some form or another. Most people are continually creating new karmic solutions. This is due to ignorance and its accompanying afflictions. Before final emancipation, all Karmic debts must be worked out, whether one decides to do so in the present life or leaves this work for later lifetimes.
