Reply To: Kamma and Intention


Thank you for the initial response, I’ll be monitoring this thread should any discussion appear.
I read the last part about insane people not creating kamma (if the action is due to their insanity, I guess?)
I think it is consistent within Buddha Dhamma, since medically insane people has a brain with broken wiring here and there. Refering to other post about Ghandhabba, and the simile about how manomaya kaya (ghandabba) is like the driver of a tank, if the tank somehow malfunctioned and suddenly start shooting random people, the driver won’t be charged for any crime; that’s the reason medically insane people would not accumulate bad kamma in this case.

I am still really curious about the 2 cases mentioned in the first comment though.
