Past & Future 過去と未来

"We cannot change the past, but we can reshape the future. Young people have the opportunity to create a happier, better future."
(From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's tweet on December 17, 2013)

So, we should concentrate on creating more forceful positive Karma than our previous negative Karma. At the same time, we have to be very careful not to create new negative Karma.
