It's so Easy to make Good Karma - If You're Smart! Ajahn Dhammasiha
Ajahn Dhammasiha asks the audience: Imagine someone paid you $100 each time you bowed to the Buddha - how many times a day would you bow?
They all admit that they would bow so often that their back starts hurting.
But each time we bow with a genuine emotion of faith, confidence, respect and devotion, we generate good karma ('puñña') worth much more than $100! And we will not even loose that good karma when we die, but take it with us to our next life!
Therefore, once we understand how much karmic benefit we receive from a simple act as bowing, we will do it a lot. Once we understand how much good karma we make by simply thinking many times: "May all beings be happy and at ease!", we will try to think such thoughts all the time.
