The Eight Worldly Conditions
The eight things associated with worldly life are gain and loss; honour and dishonour; happiness and misery; and praise and blame.
All of these are inevitable for everyone, whether they are willing to face it or not.
Whenever good karma bears fruit one will receive gain, honour, happiness, and praise. On the contrary, when bad karma has its effect, one suffers from loss, dishonour, misery, and blame.
Everyone who lives the worldly life will encounter these conditions because this world is ruled by the Law of Karma.
