"Once you understand anatta, then the burden of life is gone. You’ll be at peace with the world. When we see beyond self, we no longer cling to happiness and we can truly be happy."

kamma is a cause for nama and rupa-materiality(some).
Vipaka refers only to a mental result, however the sense bases, where the vipaka cittas arise, are alse produced by kamma.

Note that the kamma that produces the sense base may by entirely different from the kamma that conditioned the vipaka.
