Karma Vipaka

Harvesting the karmic fruits of malevolent acts occurs in three forms of suffering.

Adhidaivika – suffering caused by phenomena of nature.
Adhyatmika – suffering that we inflict on ourselves, physically and mentally.
Adhibhautika – suffering that comes from outside, through humans/animals.

Adhidaivika includes ‚daiva‘ – fate, invisible forces.
Adhyatmika includes ‚atma‘ – the self.
Adhibautika includes ‚bhuta‘ – living beings.
