QUOTATION from ~~ Tenzing Gyatso. (1989). The Dalai Lama at Harvard: Lectures on the Buddhist Path to Peace. Jeffrey Hopkins (Trans). (Ed).

"Karmas that are accumulated for the sake of internal pleasure, upon having overcome attraction for external pleasure and having become attached to the pleasure that arises with internal meditative stabilization [which is meritorious], are involved with the first three concentrations.

  • These are called unfluctuating karmas in that they bear their fruit only in those concentrations.

Neutrality Karmas

Then, karmas that are accumulated upon having turned away even from such pleasure of internal meditative stabilization and within seeking just neutral feeling are unfluctuating karmas associated with the fourth concentration and the four formless absorptions.

  • However, if, through understanding this presentation, you develop renunciation of all types of such cyclic existence, and accumulate karmas for the sake of permanent bliss,

  • these karmas will bring about liberation from cyclic existence." [end quote]
