Amazing, Inspiring Fighter

Mixed Martial Arts with no hands, feet, knees, or elbows?

An inspiring and amazing amputee-from-birth is ready for the brutal world of fighting Mixed Martial Arts style. American Kyle Maynard is competing in an amateur MMA match despite having no elbows, knees, hands, or feet.

VIDEO (AP) It is possible that karma may have contributed to his condition, but it is certain that karma is responsible for his overcoming obstacles. Karma means deeds, that which is willed and carried out. Vipaka and phala (results and fruits of past karma) is no match for karma in the present moment.

Failure to remember this distinction leads to great misunderstandings and severe backlash against figures like Sharon Stone. (Stone suggested China's earthquake disaster might have had something to do with its collective treatment of Tibet). Beings endure many lives, carried on by their karma, always with choice IF they can see the karma-options in front of them.
It is famously said in karmic-Christian context:
"Every saint has a past, every 'sinner' a future."
