What does this concept mean to you?  I am a new member, as of last June, and I have been asked to give a short presentation on this concept at my next District meeting.  I want to keep it succinct but meaningful.  As I understand it, one changes one's Karma by changing themselves...creating good Karma through thought, action and deed.  One expiates past karma by chanting Nam-myoho-regne-kyo for themselves and others.  I take responsibility for my past and present actions and, working on myself and introducing this practice to others, I make changing my Karma into my mission.  Is this correct?  Other ideas/comments from others would be most helpful.  Thanks!

very right Sir

In Buddhism there are many dimensions to concepts. In this particular one, it can mean a) how you will treat others in your work place or family. That you will transform your family's or employment place from good to great through your practice and interactions. I know this is far fetched but I am a retired nurse and chanted to change my karma.. what I got was a better person who had compassion beyond the norm for my patients and it benefited all involved. I was open to learning and many times when others were complaining about the environment, I was able to listen with an open mind, speak with an open heart and encourage with confidence. b) not only elevate your life condition but be supportive of others even if you don't like them or don't agree. This means opening dialogue with those whom you would NEVER think of talking to or standing in line with.. but build a bond of friendship that goes beyond what one can see. or is similar to that that you used to know.. good luck.. k
