Freedom from the Bondage of Karma

$10.95

Karma,the activity of doing and being, is traditionally symbolized as a rope of many strands, holding the human self in the bondage of suffering and necessitating many reincarnations. The strands of the rope of karma are actions, thoughts, desires, and the latent tendencies of personality which lie hidden in the depths of the subconscious mind. These tendencies keep the mind in a state of constant agitation and outward-directedness in search of appeasement. The result is enslavement to the objects, ideas, fantasies and pleasures which vie for our mind’s attention. As long as the mind remains in this scattered condition, there can be no hope of freedom from karma. In the eight lectures in this volume, Swami Rama analyzes the mechanisms of karma in order to demonstrate the kind of self-study one must undertake to attain freedom from the bondage of karma.
