The Doctrine of Karma in Yoga and Vedanta


Swami Brahmananda
Tuition: $25

Hours: 2 hours

What you’ll learn:

  • Discuss the law of Karma and how it operates in our life
  • How to neutralize the negative effects of our past Karma that causes suffering
  • Learn how Dharma helps us in accumulating positive Karmas which contribute to our happiness and peace of mind
  • How to become free through Karma Yoga – transforming actions into Yoga
  • How free will and destiny are reconciled
  • Self-effort and Divine grace


Unlock the mysteries of the workings of Karma in the light of the teachings of Yoga and Vedanta. The law of Karma is vital for our understanding of life’s experiences, goals, and how to cultivate wisdom that will allow us to be more detached and less emotionally shattered from the events of our everyday life. Ultimately Yoga and Vedanta teach us how to transcend the effects of Karma and attain spiritual freedom.

Whatever life may have in store for us and whatever we have been through until now, is part of our Prarabdha or present life Karma. Its roots are in the subtle results of the actions of our forgotten past – Sanchita or accumulated Karma. The actions we perform in the present, or Agami Karma, weave our destiny.
