For anyone seeking a useful definition of karma, free of any religious or doctrinal influence, Ruth White provides this clear and practical guide. White delves into the meaning of karma as it arises from Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity, offering a straightforward discussion of its meaning in each tradition. From there she guides the reader into karma's necessary connection to reincarnation and its important applications for contemporary life, making a distinction between the true meaning of karma and the commonly held notion that it's all about punishment for past errors. White also provides useful tools for applying your understanding of karma to your real life. Through exercises, meditations, and case studies, White guides the seeker through an exploration of how karma aids us in our evolutionary journey to enlightenment. Glossary. Bibliograpgy. Index.
