Quite often it seems that mysterious, inexplicable things happen that science and philosophy are not able to explain for us. Every single thing that happens, though, has a cause, and has conditions. The universe operates according to the natural law of cause and effect. It is not powered by chaos; it is not a random situation. In the Salu Sprout Sutra this natural law of cause and effect is discussed in an external sense in terms of things that happen in the world around us, and also in an internal sense in terms of positive actions reaping good results, and so on.
