Notes

Abstract: This thesis demonstrates that Buddhism's ethical-causal doctrine of karma is multidimensional, and that an individualistic understanding of karma is basic but not sufficient. Karma may be shown to function on three levels: the individual, the interpersonal, and the collective. A multidimensional reading of karma doctrine enables us to understand the causal-conditional dynamics between beings, as well as the significance of group actions and experiences. It illuminates the ethical dimension of the interdependence of beings and phenomena. Although most Buddhologists focus on karma's implications for individual �actors� and �experiencers� of the fruits of action, this study points out that a number of seminal Buddhist texts, Hinayana and Mahayana, provide the precedent for a more comprehensive understandings of the doctrine. The task at hand is, thus, to reconstruct and consider the implications of Buddhist karma's multidimensionality.
