|AN.IV.235||Ariyamagga Sutta||There are four types of karma and karmic retribution: |
1. black/dark actions with black/dark retribution: those who break the Five Precepts;
2. white/bright actions with white/bright retribution: those who keep the Five Precepts;
3. mixed black/dark and white/bright actions with mixed black/dark and white/bright retributions: those who sometimes harm others and sometimes refrain from harming others arise in a world where there is sometimes harming and sometimes not and receive a mixture of happiness and suffering, and;
4. neither black/dark nor white/bright actions with neither black/dark nor white/bright retribution: those who practise the Noble Eightfold Path.
The last of these [nibbedo] is conducive to a waning of karma.
