Bodhisattva's thought

"The Bodhisattva analyzed the cycle of karma, result, and reaction into the following terms: karma is intention; its result, feeling; the reaction to that feeling, perception and attention -- i.e., attention to perceptions about the feeling -- which together form the views that color further intentions. If perception and attention are clouded by ignorance, craving, and clinging, they lead to stress and further ignorance, and form the basis for intentions that keep the cycle in motion."
