"Full of valuable insights to guide you." (Will Smith)
"Thoughtful and life-affirming...a must-read." (Tony Robbins)
"This book will put you back in charge of your own life." (Tom Brady)

A new perspective on the overused and misunderstood concept of "karma" that offers the key to happiness and enlightenment, from the 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.

In Karma, Sadhguru seeks to put you back in the driver’s seat, turning you from a terror-struck passenger to a confident driver navigating the course of your own destiny. By living consciously and fully inhabiting each moment, you can free yourself from the cycle. Karma is an exploration and a manual, restoring our understanding of karma to its original potential for freedom and empowerment instead of a source of entanglement. Through Sadhguru’s teachings, you will learn how to live intelligently and joyfully in a challenging world.

“With Karma, Sadhguru explores both the limitations and possibilities of human existence. It is full of valuable insights to guide you to live a life of fulfillment and well-being.” (Will Smith)

Karma is a thoughtful and life-affirming reminder of our vast capacity to effect positive change in our own life and in the lives of others. A must-read for anyone feeling stuck and hopeless.” (Tony Robbins )

I (literally) could not put this book down

I have lost hours of sleep two nights in a row because of this book. I couldn't stop pressing the gold button for 28 minutes more.

Sadhguru took time out of his insanely busy schedule to read this book to us, Sadhguru, do you feel guilty for robbing us of this much sleep?

Surprisingly, this book has been a "hide under the covers with a flashlight and hope the parents don't catch you" type of read. I really found it that engrossing.

And having been through it a couple of times, I feel more optimistic about being able to "handle my karma," i.e. life. About enjoying life in general. And I feel a renewed willingness to do my part to handle the problems of others. For, as one of Sadhguru's aphorisms for beginning yogis says (my paraphrase): All rules are my rules. I understand that in a more profound way after reading this book.

Sadhguru doesn't hold back in this book. Although he has always been forthcoming when teaching, he has also sometimes expressed a fear of making us "hallucinatory" if he went ahead and shared things beyond our personal experience. Yet in this book, he seems to go farther. And I for one am grateful.

I will probably keep reading this book over and over. Until now, Jane Austen's novels are the only books I've felt that way about. I never tire of reading them. I think this book from Sadhguru will be the same. I do hope I can get some sleep soon, though.

Sadhguru has transformed how I look at life

Sadhguru manages to communicate in the most efficient way. Many ideas that would take thousands of pages in the vedas to explain, take him a couple minutes. Would recommend to anyone on the track of deciding their destiny and removing suffering.

Just what I needed

How I have wanted to ask all of these questions ? How did he know to answer all I was yearning to know.? To hear Sadhguru reveal this wisdom himself as I busy about is and incredible gift from audible when there is a book you know you would read multiple times and still get something you missed. This clear intricate explanation of what karma means to YOU personally is priceless. 🙏🏻

Best book I have ever read/listen

This is the best book I have ever read/listen. Highly recommend this book for everyone. It is only a few days since I started following some guides from the book and I already see a clear shift in my life. I plan to listen to the book again and again.

Great read!

Sadhguru has illuminated the word 'karma' from being a mere slang expression to a profound understanding of what it truly is. In this book Sadhguru not only sheds light on what karma is but also gives us the tools to experiment with it in our own lives. Irrespective of whether or not you have done yoga, this book can become a shining beacon to guide your life.

Great book on karma

Loved to listen to Sadhguru's voice. It was as if I was directly spoken to. The book has a pragmatic and practice oriented aspect also, not just theory. A must read book for everybody who is human.

The veil lifted on the terrifying word “Karma”

A magnificent explanation of this terrifying subject. Beautifully explained allowing the listener to absorb the magnitude of the age old word we all fear but without reason, understanding nor experience. Soothing yet thought provoking in the best possible way.

Unique and important book

Karma, along with Sadhguru's book entitled "Death: An Inside Story" released last year, is one of the most important spiritual books to ever be released. It is a unique and clear exploration of the concept of karma; what it actually means, what it does not mean. Essential reading for any spiritual seeker. Sadhguru is also an excellent narrator, which is a huge bonus.
