Confidence in life

Nearly everyone in our village was poor, desperately poor. But our Theravada Buddhist belief system gave up unshakable confidence in life. According to kamma, the law of cause and effect, current circumstances are the result of past actions. More importantly, future circumstances will the result of our current actions. Therefore, we believed it was best to try hard and carry on, regardless of the difficulties in our lives.
