Don't lurk.
How do you know your 'self' is 'annihilated' or somehow disappear, so that 
karma will no longer work?
Does that mean nihilism? Or nirvana?

I'm having trouble lurking...

Karma does not have a position in zen.

Karma is a belief in a lot of religions, like Buddhism, Hinduism and 
even Christianity - 'as you sow, so shall you reap', 'if you're 'bad' 
you'll go to hell but if you're 'good' you'll go to heaven', etc...

Maintain a clear mind and karma is not relevant. How can YOU generate, 
accumulate and/or be affected by KARMA if there is no YOU?

If however a clear mind is not maintained and there is a big fat YOU 
waddling around out there like a big wad of spiritual Velcro, then who 
knows what could stick to it? Maybe even karma! 

Clear Mind. Just THIS!
