NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY BESTSELLER 
“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.

    This book has been my greatest read! The understanding that I have now of life is unexplainable! But it is only for those who want to understand it.

    I have recently started my spiritual journey and i have struggled alot both mentally, physically, etc, i often felt powerless when it came to my life, my thoughts, my emotions but this book changed my life. It changed the way i look at myself and everthing outside of me. All this time i was so lost but this book put things into perspective for me. It helped me take control of my life. Words by itself can’t describe the profoundness of this book, it is something you have to read and experience for yourself. But if you want to change your life, this book is a must read!

    With each page turn of this phenomenal book and life manual of sorts, I felt both at ease and mind-blown. After years of lectures and people’s interpretations of karma around me, this book contained the answers I had been searching for all along. Although I was raised around the culture the concept of karma stems from, I never knew anything about its intricacies until now. I never would have predicted a book about this would be released, and I am so grateful for the many lives it is empowering. Sadhguru manages to weave humor, wisdom, clarifications, and demystifications into each chapter with ease. I feel more ready to take on what the world has to offer and make my life what I want it to be. I hope human beings strive to be more progressive, inclusive, and conscious so we can all live our best lives while impacting the world positively.

    I had always (erroneously) believed that the destiny vs. free will debate is an endless one, much like the chicken vs. egg debate. I now see so clearly that all we need is an elevation of our thought and, more importantly, our experience of life to understand how things work. Each page in this book drops with an ageless wisdom that can only be imparted by a truly realized being/spiritual master. If you, like me, are unfamiliar with the Eastern Mysticism and blueprint of life, I would highly recommend reading 'Death: an inside story' before you read this - simply because that book helps clarify some of the tricker concepts like the mechanics of reincarnation. Sadhguru has made ordinary people into Yogis and has certainly turned this once rigid, skeptical, stone of a man into a joyful being :)

    Sadhguru unravels the mysteries of Karma, it was a truly transformational book for me. I think this book is a must read for a spiritual person or not. It emphasizes on how to take control of our own life in any situation. Sadhguru beautifully explains the significance Karma plays in our life, tendencies and compulsions. Amazing read. They only downside of the book is that it ends :).
