{Buddhadharma} Karma—the notion of cause and effect

Why Do Good People Still Suffer Retribution?

From the perspective of the Buddhadharma, human life and death aren't limited to one lifetime. We have actually gone through countless rebirths, so sometimes it's difficult to look at the causes and effects solely at a single lifetime. The best way is to let bygones be bygones while paying attention to our present actions; things that can be dealt with should be dealt with properly. This is more conducive to our physical and mental well-being, and to our own future.
