The Second Circle
Black Dhamma, White Dhamma
- Black Dhamma
- is the Kamma which is caused by Ignorance (Avijja) and is a
continuous delusion. One who is in the sphere of Black Kamma is like one
who walks at night, clothed only in darkness, dirty and useless.
- White Dhamma
- is the good Kamma which is under the influence of the Buddha
(Transcendental wisdom (Vijja) or the one who knows). One who is ethical
lives in the sphere of light, clean and pure.
- Black Kamma
- Acting in an evil way results in evil = Black Kamma = an unskilful
action leading to hell: for example, the mind which is depressed,
anxious, unwise or stupid.
- White Kamma
- Acting in a good way results in good = White Kamma = a skilful
action leading to the destination of happiness: for example, the mind
which is bright, calm, cool and wise.
