||In Buddhist teaching,
the law of karma, says:
"for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence
was caused by the first, and this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant
according as its cause was skillful or unskillful."
A skillful event is one that is not accompanied by craving, resistance
or delusions; an unskillful event is one that is accompanied by any one
of those things. (Events are not skillful in them, but are so called only
in virtue of the mental events that occur with them.)
Therefore, the law of Karma teaches that responsibility for unskillful
actions is born by the person who commits them.
