Sadhguru seeks to unravel karma and explains how its concepts can be used to enhance lives in his new book. "Karma: A Yogi's Guide to Crafting Your Destiny" is a step-by-step guide to navigating one's way in this challenging world.
The author says for far too long, the word karma has been either grotesquely over-simplified or needlessly mystified.
"It is time to explore the concept more deeply. It is time to unpack the most overused, abused, and yet indispensable word in the spiritual vocabulary of the world. It is time to examine how karma is connected to some of the most vital areas of human inquiry: the meaning of life and, above all, how to live it," he writes.
According to Sadhguru, karma is not a poetic subject but a complex domain - one that involves precise, even clinical, concepts and distinctions. "Yet neither is karma a sterile theme. It is the basis of human existence - a life- and- death issue, in fact. There can be nothing narrowly academic about such a discussion," he says.
