In ancient times, all Buddhists believed in karmic imprints; they believed their good or bad actions were kept in their “mindstream”. Today, we can think about it as a perpetual, non-stop “karmic camera.” The karmic camera takes pictures of whatever we have done or whatever we are doing, which we can then examine in our own karmic mirrors. The karmic camera takes pictures of not only our physical actions, but also our mental actions; it is attuned to the body, speech and mind. Where is your “karmic camera?” How does it work? How can you remove it? Tulku Yeshi will tell you how!
