Sample text

This imprisonment in the round of existence is the result of one's own deeds (kamma), good or bad. Conditioned by deeds, the present form of existence can be changed or dissolved by deeds. This is possible because the present is not the total effect of the past. It is simultaneously cause and effect. As an effect, we are conditioned by the causal matrix made up of the social and biological continuities of life themselves and thus are the effect of our past deed. What we are now is the result of what we have been before.

One must not abuse it through food, alcohol, drugs, or by taxing it with over-indulgence and deprivation. Even enlightenment, the highest goal of Buddhism, cannot be attained by the mortification of the body, as witnessed in the personal experience of the Buddha. This is due to the interdependency of the mind and the body. Intellectual illumination can be attained only when the body is not deprived of anything necessary for the healthy and efficient functioning of all bodily organs. According to Buddhism, any life lived solely for self-seeking or self-indulgence is a life not worth living.

Key concepts such as culture, religion, health, and illness are often contested in plural societies comprised of many different kinds of people. Even when they are not contested and taken for granted, understanding the assumptions that lie behind them can be crucial for dealing with major ethical issues in health care.
