Yoga is a whole life process. This includes our private practice time, as well as when living our actions (karmas) in the world. Thus, karma yoga is not a separate practice, but a very useful aspect of that one, whole life process of Yoga.
The law of Karma is a universal process, whereby causes lead to effects. This is something that all of us are already familiar with, whether or not we use the word Karma to describe it. Newton's third law of motion, that every action leads to a reaction, is an application of the law of Karma. Whether we are talking about physics or daily life in the world, it is extremely useful to understand the law and process of Karma so that we may regulate or direct the process. Then, gradually, we can come to know, in direct experience, the Joy of Being that is Beyond the Karma.
We can soften the impact of the playing out of our past Karmas, and can choose our own future Karma if we are willing to put in the effort to learn how to do it. This course offers both clearexplanations of the traditional concepts of karma, and practical ways of living in and going beyond karma.
