View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Karma is the activity of doing and being. It is traditionally symbolized as a rope with strands made of actions, thoughts, desires, and the latent, subconscious tendencies of personality.

The effect of these constituent aspects of karma is to keep the mind in a state of constant agitation and outward-directedness in search of appeasement. The result is enslavement to the many objects, ideas, fantasies, and pleasures which scream for the mind's attention. As long as the mind remains in this scattered and dissipated condition, there can be no hope of freedom from karma.

In the eight lectures included in this volume, Swami Rama offers a series of perspectives on man's most significant responsibility―that of self-understanding. Analyzing the mechanisms of karma and the functioning of mind, Swamiji demonstrates the kind of self-study each student of life must undertake to gain liberation and attain freedom from the bondage of karma.

About the Author:

Swami Rama founded the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy, the Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust in India, and many centers throughout the world. A student of both Himalayan cave monasteries and European universities, he founded the Himalayan Institute to create a bridge between the ancient teachings of the East and modern scientific approaches of the West.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Excerpt "There is nothing in our destiny which we ourselves did not create. The results of actions we preformed long ago have manifested as our current destiny We must never forget as humans we have a great degree of freedom of choice. With effort we can focus our scattered mind momentarily and make a decision to involve ourselves only in wholesome actions."
