Description

From the Jacket:

The law of causation or that of karma includes the law that the like produces the like, or that every action must be followed by a reaction of similar nature. In the face of this universal law of karma, there is no room for the hypothesis of predestination and grace. This law of karma is inevitable. Every creature is bound to face this law. But there are many ways by which we can escape from the chain of this law and Karma Yoga is one of them. Doctrine of Karma discloses the secret of that escape.

This volume consists of the precious lectures on Doctrine of Karma and Philosophy of Work, delivered in America by Swami Abhedananda in course of his spiritual ministration in the West. These lectures of the Swami, expounding the philosophy of work in the lucid and vigorous style of his own, are most illuminating and will help us to get eternal happiness in life.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
