Buddhist Wheel of Life
The Buddhist Wheel of Life is the
Buddhists view of the universe. (a
mandala)

To Buddhists, existence is the Cycle


of Life, death, rebirth and suffering.

The Wheel is divided into five or six


realms, or states
Karma
Definition: Our past actions
affect us, either positively or
negatively, and that our present
actions will affect us in the
future.
For Buddhists, karma has implications beyond this life. Bad actions in
a previous life can follow a person into their next life and cause bad
effects. Karma determines where a person will be reborn and their
status in their next life.

Karma is not an external force, not a system of punishment or reward


dealt out by a god. This shows why Buddhists place such importance on
being mindful of every action they take.

Buddhists gradually weaken any negative thoughts and impulses that


they experience, through allowing them to arise and depart naturally
without acting on them.
