Karma: A Yogi's Guide to Crafting Your Destiny By Sadhguru (0593232011) (9780143452676)
A new perspective on the overused and misunderstood concept of “karma” that offers the key to happiness and enlightenment, from the New York Timesbestselling author and world-renowned spiritual master Sadhguru.
What is karma? Most people understand karma as a balance sheet of good and bad deeds, virtues and sins. The mechanism that decrees that we cannot evade the consequences of our own actions. In reality, karma has nothing to do with reward and punishment. Karma simply means action: your action, your responsibility. It isn’t some external system of crime and punishment, but an internal cycle generated by you. Accumulation of karma is determined only by your intention and the way you respond to what is happening to you. Over time, it’s possible to become ensnared by your own unconscious patterns of behavior.
