How Karma Affects the Way We Behave, Our Personality, and Our Future.
An essential reader in understanding the cause and effect of karma and how karma can offer profound insight into our behaviour and personality.
The last great mystery of life is death. There is enormous curiosity and fascination with the afterlife, but few convincing answers in Western culture. Notions of heaven and hell strike many people today as simplistic. Buddhism, on the other hand, presents a compelling philosophy concerning karma and reincarnation.
In simple terms karma is a cause and effect process - the function of being born again and again as a result of previous actions. Karma is the balancing mechanisms in nature. If we push against nature, nature will push back.
This book goes beyond the concepts of birth and death. With compelling narrative, exercises and meditations, Diana St Ruth analyses the Buddhist natural law of karma offering us an understanding of how our karma is key to our behaviour and the way we operate in the world. Essentially the law of karma is the law of ourselves, the law of our inner lives. So this book is a key to understanding ourselves on the deepest level.
It is structured as a series of short questions and issues around the topic, and each section is accompanied by an exercise to deepen the reader's understanding and personal development.
