Then a woman who purposely wanted to be rebirth as deaf. The general public's understanding of karma is - you do good in this life, you get reborn into privilege. A charitable peasant may be reborn into wealth. You do bad, you get punished. A greedy businessman may be reborn into poverty. But the video is saying, sometimes good people may choose to be reborn into unfortunate circumstances (poor/illiterate/mentally handicap/etc.). Possible because they wanted to teach the world compassion/patience/virtue/understanding. Do you think the general understanding of reincarnation is accurate?
