Enlightenment Questions - Question From Alex

Dear Tathagata

If a soldier shoots and kills someone what affect will that have on his/hers karma ? And secondly I believe in everything you say but like nearly every other person I can't understand the principle under which you say it, so where could I meet you if possible?

Best Regards

Answer from Tathagata

Dear Alex,

To shoot a person dead as soldier is done by a command, so it doesn't affect big the soldier's mental thought. Whenever, it's very natural to aim at enemy and to be ready to fire because if a soldier doesn't fire in a war, the one has to give up one's life. I've never seen any cases that to capture enemy in an war is crime or sin.
If you visit Malaysia or Korea, you can meet me every time. But I want you to understand that there are a lot of people who say they want to meet me so far, but no one visit me yet.
