Oh also I wanted to make a quick comment about this.
kAmya karma may be done with the best of intentions but remember how in
fairy tales, the hero gets three wishes but everything ends up going

delusion. A decision based on incorrect or insufficient information may
still turn out to be right but this is by pure accident. More likely it
will have a worse result than anticipated.
