Unraveling the Mystery of Karma, Fate, and Freedom

“As you sow, so shall you reap.” Even after hearing this a thousand times, we still wonder if it is really true. Is karma set in stone? Is our present and future totally at the mercy of the past? Is the law of karma self-guided or is it governed by a higher agency? Is karma always bad? Do God, mantras, rituals, prayers, divine grace, self-effort, and free will play any role in changing or modifying our fate?

In this livestream with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, learn the subtle anatomy of karma from an expert and discover how the dynamic forces of karma interact with the forces of time, space, and the law of cause and effect. Most important, learn how to avoid being the victim of your past actions and instead use them to become the master of your own life.
