MN 135 and MN 136, two great suttas explaining karma and fruit of karma


I made two english recordings of these two suttas, based on B. Sujato's translation. Mostly unchanged, the big difference is where he translated  the many occurrences of the word 'kamma' (karma, action) into 'deeds' or 'action', I replaced with 'karma'. It gives the sutta a different feel, and it's perfect for the modern audience, already familiar with the concept of 'karma' having good and bad consequences (both short term and long), commensurate with the type of 'good' or 'bad' action ('karma' = action) that precedes the karmic results 


✴️MN 135🔗🔊 Cūḷa-kamma-vibhaṅga: small [discourse on] – karma – analysis
(why do being experience good and bad results of karma [action]?)
(Buddha gives commentary on STED kamma-s-saka)
(1. Karmic result of killing → short lifespan)
(2. Karmic result of habitually hurting → sickly health)
(3. Karmic result of being irritable and foul tempered → ugly)
(4. Karmic result of envy → insignificant)
(5. Karmic result of giving to ascetics and brahmins → wealth)
(6. Karmic result of being obstinate or vain → low social status)
(7. Karmic result of asking the wise about skillful and unskillful → wisdom and intelligence)

✴️MN 136  🔗🔊 Mahā-kamma-vibhaṅga: big [discourse on] – karma – analysis:
(4 types of people in world)
(1. Does evil → goes to hell)
(2. Does evil → goes to heaven)
(3. Does good → goes to heaven)
(4. Does good → goes to hell)

AN 7.67 🏰 the fortress: one of the greatest suttas of all time

I've surely spent more than 10 hours alone on just rearranging the sutta text, expanding it into a complete form (filling in all peyyaala elisions) and massaging the pali to make it readable and easy to see the root and key words in the many compound words obscured by sandhi. 

Yesterday I recorded it as a pali chant, 25 min. Slower than normal conversational speed, but faster than how most people chant. 

Here are the links to the sutta text and audio.
Be sure to check out the partitioned version, to directly jump to interesting sections directly (corresponding to the sutta text table of contents)

AN 7.67 - 🔗🔊 🏰 study and memorize the key ideas. This is one of the best suttas in the EBT to help you understand exactly how each of the path factors in 8aam, 7sb, 37bp, interact with each other, what duties they share and overlap.
