"Karma is action. Every act has a result. That is karma. If you perform positive karma, it will continue very well. It will help you and help other people. So karma should be understood in a positive way also. To product a thought of loving-kindness, compassion and understanding. Doing something to help people suffer less is a wonderful karma." by Thich Nhat Hanh.
Karma leads to future consequences, which are "the fruits of action". Human beings are destroying our earth and treating other creatures like slaves. Let's support animal protection and create positive karma and build up a better future for ourselves and our next generation now.

[Silk Road and Buddhist Art]
Buddhism entered Han China via the Silk Road, beginning in the 1st or 2nd century CE. Direct contact between Central Asian and Chinese Buddhism continued throughout the 3rd to 7th centuries, much into the Tang period (唐代). From the 4th century onward, Chinese pilgrims like Faxian (法顯, 395–414) and later Xuanzang (玄奘, 629–644) started to travel to northern India in order to get improved access to original scriptures.
The Mogao Caves (莫高窟), also known as the Thousand Buddha Grottoes or Caves of the Thousand Buddhas, form a system of 500 temples 25 km southeast of the center of Dunhuang, an oasis located at a religious and cultural crossroads on the Silk Road, in Gansu province, China. The Mogao Caves consists of 750 caves, over 490 of them with mural paintings such as paradise, and angels, on five levels hewn into an escarpment in the desert. You can discover more than 2000 painted clay figures and Buddha figurines in Mogao Caves.
