RE: Is Buddhism really that cool?
I recently got taught what the real version of Karma is. It's not the non-offensive New Age definition everyone talks about, say for example, "He was mean to me, but Karma got him in the end!*".

The actual meaning of karma is that what you do in this life will get back to you in the next. It influenced by a previous lifespan and influences the next lifespan. No changes happen within the same lifespan (*).

The truly insulting reality: if you're born with a disability, defect or go through some sort of trauma in childhood, that's karma from a previous lifespan you went through.

What the actual fuck?

It's blamed on the person with the disadvantage.

The Buddhism I'd encountered before that is very whitewashed.
