Podcast: “How Karma Works: The 12 Nidanas” with Juan-Carlos Castro

12 Nidanas.jpgThis week on the ID Project Podcast, Juan Carlos-Castro takes us through the 12 Nidanas, a structure in Buddhist Philosophy that helps us to understand the “links in the chain of conditioned co-production”, or put another way, the structure of relationships that inform our perception of reality.  That image to the left (click for a larger version) is a diagram of the 12 Nidanas set up by Reggie Ray in his book Indestructable Truth to help clarify some of these concepts. The color coding was added by Juan-Carlos to distinguish the parts of the chain that symbolize Past, Present and Future.

Wisdom 2.0
