A new perspective on the overused and misunderstood concept of karma is out, which is supposed to offer the keys to happiness and enlightenment.

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.

Sadhguru has a unique ability to make the ancient yogi sciences relevant to contemporary minds. His approach does not ascribe to any belief system but offers methods for self-transformation that are both proven and powerful.
An internationally renowned speaker and author of the New York Times Bestseller “Inner Engineering, A Yogi’s Guide to Joy,” Sadhguru has been an influential voice at major global forums including the UN and the World Economic Forum, addressing issues as diverse as socioeconomic development, leadership, and spirituality. 

He has also been invited to speak at leading educational institutions, including Oxford, London Business School, IMD, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Wharton, and MIT. In February 2017, Sadhguru was the recipient of the Padma Vibhushan Award from the government of India, the highest annual civilian award, accorded for exceptional and distinguished service.

Dedicated to the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of humanity and gifted with utter clarity of perception, Sadhguru possesses a perspective on life that never fails to intrigue, challenge, and surprise all those he encounters. Sadhguru established the Isha Foundation, a non-profit, volunteer-run organization operating in more than 300 centers and supported by over 11 million volunteers worldwide. 

Through powerful yoga programs for inner transformation and inspiring social outreach initiatives, Isha Foundation has created a massive movement dedicated to addressing all aspects of human well-being.

Sadhguru has also initiated several projects for social revitalization, education, and the environment through which millions of people have been given the means to overcome poverty, improve their quality of life, and achieve community-based, sustainable development.

In the fall of 2017, Sadhguru initiated “Rally For Rivers,” a nationwide campaign aiming to implement sustainable and long-term policy changes to revitalize India’s severely depleted rivers. With over 162 Million individuals pledging their support, Rally for Rivers is the largest ecological movement in the world to date. 

“Karma” has even drawn attention from HRH Princess Noor, who said: "Pursuing your truth. Understanding this human experience. Embodying the divine is such an ongoing process of unveiling, adapting, and redesigning. The words in this book are the key to unlocking your truth, to see with no eyes, to hear the truth that lies in silence, and to connect with your inner wisdom.
Thank you, Sadhguru, for such an enlightening creation, an offering to all seekers."
