Extracted from the website of Buddhist Vajrayana Charity Funds Association and translated (因果是一種現象) into English:
Cause and Effect is a Type of Phenomenon
Cause and Effect is a hidden faint phenomenon. It would be good if it can be described in words, as this could help people to have a more profound understanding and vigilance towards certain encounters and phenomena that happen in everyday life.
Buddhists say, “If one suffers from hardship and harm is the result of one needs to bear, we must try our best not to interfere with other people’s Cause and Effect. In modern times, many people are trapped by depression and anxiety; this is the emergence of karma.”
People say, “Then, what are Bodhisattvas here for? Are they not here to alleviate hardship and reduce suffering!”
By not interfering with other people’s Cause and Effect, we are possibly helping them to possess the ability and the courage to bear their consequences as soon as possible. In addition, this also avoids those with karmic force, who due to moaning and complaining to heaven and other people, generate the result of 'further karmic consequence on karma'. In particular, the Cause and Effect with karmic consequence that we commonly recognise are a kind of 'growing up' mechanism rather than 'punishment' mechanism. Although the purpose of 'punishment' may seem to have rendered people in suffering and in hardship against their mind and wishes, however, if those being punished do not grow up and do not fully see through the principle of Cause and Effect, they will still generate bad karma in the future. If those who suffer from karmic force have the ability, the courage and the sense of responsibility to bear suffering and hardship, this can prove that he (she) can positively accept adversity, and endure suffering and hardship wholeheartedly in order to end the karma. There will be no repeated karmic consequence in the future.
Furthermore, Buddhists should not interfere in the disputes amongst the various Buddhist sects, as each individual should bear their own karma. Insulting Buddha, insulting Mahayana Sutras, and insulting Sages, the retribution of hell will surely happen in the future. All we can do is to show them compassion and to pity them!
