Study Hall - Shobogenzo

With the Tour having a rest day, I start on the undated fascicles:
"If you receive kindness, aspire to return the kindness. If you give kindness, to not expect the kindness to be returned...
As the World-Honored One says, once wholesome or unwholesome actions are created, they will not perish even after one hundred, one thousand, or ten thousand eons. One receives the results when the causes and conditions meet. However, unwholesome actions disappear or turn to lighter results by repentance. Wholesome actions increase by rejoicing. This is called never perish. It is not that they do not have effects" ('Karma in the three periods', 'Sanji Go').
