Doing good deeds for Karma always is either a charitable deed or a good deed done to assist others will be greatly appreciated and even rewarded by karma forces. You may have heard individuals talking about the great merit that comes after performing many good deeds for Karma. This isn’t an exaggeration at all; even in Buddhist teachings there is an emphasis on this. As one teacher once said; “Karma is like a river; it doesn’t care who gets its water”. And indeed, Karma doesn’t discriminate; it actually prefers the good to the evil.
In order to perform good deeds for Karma you must understand the nature of karma and what happens at various levels of existence. At the most basic level we have earth with humans at its center and beings and plants as its inhabitants. At the next level we have beings at the highest rung of the food chain and humans at the very bottom.
Now what is required from a human being at the very bottom rung of the food chain is to act in a manner that would help create more food for those at the top of the food chain…so that there can be constant balance in their lives. When we think of performing good deeds we are really thinking in terms of creating more karma which will benefit those on the path of enlightenment. So what would come at the higher levels of existence is providing material goods for those at the next level of the food chain. Or better still, there might even be a point when material goods would become completely unnecessary for survival.
If this is going to be our aim then we should definitely consider having good karma by performing good deeds in this lifetime. Buddhism talks about the five elements – earth, wind, fire, water and wood. These are the basic building blocks of what we consider to be matter. The more evenly divided your five elements are the more evenly spread your good karma will be.
So one way to achieve that goal of removing bad karma would be through practicing Buddhist meditation. This form of meditation was developed by the Buddha himself and it is highly respected throughout the world today. In fact, it is taught in almost every religion. It uses a very simple set of guidelines to bring you to a meditative state where you can purify and cleanse your mind and body and use these spiritual principles to help you achieve greater wisdom and understand the true nature of life.
One of the best examples of Buddhist meditation is using Buddhist monk prayer rugs. These rugs were originally used by Buddhist monks hundreds of years ago. And while they are still used by many monks in this day and age, they are also gaining popularity with people all over the world. What makes these rugs special is that they use very special meditation techniques to help you reach a highly focused state of mind where you can clear away your negative karma. And once you have reached this state, you will find it very easy to help others. These Buddhist monk prayer rugs even contain sounds that help you reach this powerful meditative state and prepare you to begin your own personal mantra for purification and healing.
There are several places where you can purchase Buddhist monk prayer rugs. In most cases you will find that these rugs are sold at Buddhist temples or at any large shopping malls. Most people are attracted by the beautiful designs of these Buddhist temple rugs and become immediately drawn to them. In doing so, they open themselves up to the wonderful blessings of Buddhism and how being in a temple can help them to purify and cleanse their minds and bodies.
The main thing to remember about visiting a temple is to make sure that the temple is run in an orderly fashion. There is no point in visiting a temple if the monks are drinking excessively and doing drugs. You may feel free to purchase the most expensive Buddhist rugs but you should be careful not to compromise on the quality of them because the image of a temple and Buddha is usually attached to them. You may also want to visit the temple regularly so that you can catch up with the daily activities of the monks. If you take all these things into consideration, there is no doubt that visiting a temple will help you to purify your spirit and achieve enlightenment.
