It is really sad to hear someone to say that when so many people lost their loves ones in this earthquake. They are innocent, they did nothing wrong so Sharon, is this Karma? Since everyone has right to make their comment so we have no right to justice someone. All we can do is praying and helping who is really our help.

Sharon Stone's comment about Katrina.

News Reporter: Did you hear know about the typhoon in New Orleans?

Stone: Of cause I have. You know, it's very interesting about that since first, I'm not happy about the way USA treats the Iraqis because I think anyone should not be unkind to anyone else. And so I am being very concerned the election of the next president, because we had not being nice to Saddam Hussein, who is a good friend of mine. And Katrina typhoon ,and all the stuff happened, and I thought, is that Karma? When you’re not nice that the bad things happen. And then I got a letter from the Iraqi Foundation that they want to go and be helpful. This made me cry. And they asked me if I will write a quote to that, and I said I would that it was a big lesson to me, that sometimes you have to learn to put your face down and be a dog to the person who aren't nice to you. And that is a big lesson to me.

It was a real 'KARMA' on Sharon Stone that she is recently being kicked away from the new movie and the 'DIOR CHINA'.

We should not take her remarks out of context. She did not say it is karma, she is just saying that it was her first reaction. This is what she actually said:

"Well you know it was very interesting because at first, you know, I am not happy about the ways the Chinese were treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. And so I have been very concerned about how to think and what to do about that because I don't like that. And I had been this, you know, concerned about, oh how should we deal with the Olympics because they are not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who is a good friend of mine.

And all these earthquake and stuff happened and I thought: Is that karma, when you are not nice that bad things happen to you? And then I got a letter, from the Tibetan Foundation that they want to go and be helpful. And that made me cry. And they ask me if I would write a quote about that and I said,"I would."And it was a big lesson to me, that some times you have to learn to put your head down and be of service even to people who are not nice to you. And that's a big lesson for me..."

I think we should give her a break as she was telling people how her thought about the earthquake changed over time.

I think this is the smartest thing Sharon may have ever said.

This thread keeps getting bumped up, I wonder if Sharon herself isnt "Anonymous Poster" just trying to keep her name in the limelight.
Bad publicity is better than NO publicity at all.

From what I heard, she was pushing for change and founded some charity organizations (or something like that) herself. How can an advocate for change make such incompassionate comments on National TV?

I am tired of stupid celebs falling into the trends of making friends with the Dalai Lama. It feels like that they are trying to be different and stand out from everyone else and create a whole new fashion. These people have no prior concept and understanding of politics and/or anything about China. Isn't that stereotypical? But they want to be involve just to make themselves look and feel better... Little did they know that the old Tibetian ways was very little different from a communist rule. The Dalai Lama was served like a king.. and now he's splitist preaching about peace, while stirring up instability right before the olympics. What a hypocrit. Did they check whether the Dalai Lama is receiving a fat pay check from teh US gov't? I doubt it... since he probably gets a lot of money from selling his books.

People in Tibet are having higher quality of living after the Chinese rule. Yes, they are not living the same as they used to.. and stripped off their ancient traditional way of living. But do people ever ask "who benefits most if Tibet was free?" The US and the Dalai Lama since the Lama are friends w/ the CIA. Wonder why the Chinese need to secure their bothers?

Well, about human rights? Who are the US to tell anyone to improve their human rights while they waged war everywhere in the so-called name of democracy. Just a bunch of hypocrits.... Remember, no political system is perfect no matter what the initial intentions were. Power and greed tends to distort all good intentions........

People, get smarter and stop being stupid and ignorant!!! Wake up and do some traveling and reading before judging.

Dude, what is your reading problem? Is my English so bad that you can not even understand what I am writing? Who is ignoring a whole post here? And keep on pointing fingers like "you are not a buddhist, you don't know anything about it, and claim that himself is suchan intectuel, blablabla".

Karma is by the way much more complicated than simple this action will affect your next reaction, it's not as simplistic as you claim it to be. Today you are feeding your baby might be the murderer of your previous life's parents, who reincarnated as dogs, which you just kicked away to keep them as far away as possible from your beloved baby. Think about this small example for a while. I think I am not the one who need to dig up what karma means boy. Especially when I have been a buddhist for my whole life.

In fact, I find it rather difficult to understand what the guy really want to tell us, no matter in terms of gramma or logic. It seems that s/he has got a cerebral thrombosis by reading those books mentioned.

If you do believe in sth called karma, you might even want to celebrate the tragic death of you beloved/family, or your being injured, deprived, wronged, slain as all those miseries may simply be boiled down to this karma thing. All you've to do is to accept it as destined retributions to you, your family, friends, compatriots, or strangers at places you know or don't know. There is no need for compassion, humanity, or even human rights, because a sinful guy in the previous life is not worthy of those things.

You shallow, iron-hearted, wicked minds deserve no mercy and are destined to bad ending or a distressful other life in you words. That is the curse you cast on yourselves. You are no human being, cuz you have no humane feelings. You are just some thinking animals in the human form. Don't say you are buddhists or christians. No God in the world no matter in any religion will accept such a disciple.

I see that we have another poster that can't/doesn't or is in capable of reading and understanding and therein lies the problem with those that attempt to comment about Karma as a person ignorant of Buddhist meaning of the term.

I'll make this easy for you as I can only assume your attention span is limited?

I'm not a Buddhist I do not adhere to any religion or spiritual faith/belief and this has come about from direct experience over many years of having practiced a religion. Following? All my comments were trying to explain in the 3rd person; of what a Buddhist practicing or otherwise (not sure about Ms Stone?) might view the Karma or collective karma that Ms Stone was commenting about. Still awake? At no point did I express a personal opinion of my thoughts about the earthquake as related to Karma. This might have been because I thought that my opinions regarding karma were frankly irrelevant to this audience?

Now, if your really interested in trying to open your mind and may be seeing things from another (Ms Stone) perspective? Then you might want to have a read of some of the excellent reading selection I've offered to another 'confused' poster?

Ignorance is the root of all that’s wrong in this world, stupidity is what feeds this.

I thought she is just being frank to her own thinking, she really don't mean to critic about CHINA and the disaster. Sometimes things happened and our heart and minds just run while and starts having thoughts. Sharon Stones is just being honest with her comments and not pouring angers. I believe they are many more out there have thoughts so.. it is just because they are not well known. Why condemn her? Everybody deserved a second chance, think again, who else in the world have never says wrong things in thrie life at the wrong place before? People learned from mistakes. Btw, i am not a fan of her, i watch the clips and her body language does not have any hatred.

I hope that ms. Stone truthfully realize that the remarks she made were terribly wrong and inappropiate.
More than that I wish she is sincere and true to herself when she apologized.
Terrible events like the earthequake in China, hurricane Katrina in the U.S., the tsunami in southern Asia, 9/11 in the U.S., etc. can NEVER EVER be mentioned as karma.
These are innocent lives; human lives, people!!! Blood is red everywhere; no matter the race, gender, religion, sexual preferences etc.
We have hatred around the world in surfeit, so please people, think twice before you post even worse remarks.
Instead we should all show some compassion towards brothers and sisters all over the world, towards mankind!
