All of us have to cope with many different problems every day. In some situations, we can solve problems in a good way which does not have bad effects on anyone or anything. But sometimes, especially in urgent or dangerous situations, we have to do bad deeds for good purposes. “One reaps what he sows” is a quote that we often hear when we learn the Buddha’s teachings. This quote mentions the law of cause and effect. This law does exist and regulate everything. However, will there be an exception, in which we should do unwholesome deeds for the sake of other people?
