Diagram of four lives of the same being - How karma works

Screen reader version: 

This cartoon features a diagram showing four consecutive lives of the same being, as karma guides their transformation through those different forms.

This particular being starts off as a nude, angelic woman floating on a cloud, and goes through two more transitions (becoming a grim reaper and then a large, angry woman with a rolling pin) before ending their life as a bug.

In conclusion, the bug’s final words are simply, “Dang!”
