Ed and Anthony,

Karma is illusory.  I’ve written many posts about this in the past so I won’t 
go into all that here.

If you are a Catholic and have faith in the priest, you can indeed receive 
absolution from interaction with a pedophilic priest.  The absolution is not an 
action that takes place between you and the priest.  It is an action that takes 
place between you and God.

That is if you are Catholic.

…Bill!

No, in Buddhism, karma is your action. Like in Newton's laws, once an action is 
done, there is certainly a reaction coming. You cannot 'surpass' your karma by 
sitting chan. If that was true, why not take an easier way of going to church 
and ask a pedophilic priest to absolve you?

Hi JMJM,
What is meant by the high-lighted sentence below? Is it a teaching of the 
Buddha?

Hi Ed,

That's a description most valuable to the author.  

What we teach is, through Sitting Chan, as we gradually surpass the three 
karmic hindrances -- body, mind and spirit -- then we can witness or experience 
ourselves.

Perhaps you have heard the statement about Chan,  "It simply could not be 
described?"
