Karma: A Guide to Cause & Effect


In this compelling, accessible introduction to the ancient science of karma, award-winning author Jeffrey Armstrong explores reincarnation, the deeper mysteries of the soul, the laws of nature, and the ways in which cause and effect control our lives. The Revolving Cycle of Life

Karma, says Jeffrey Armstrong, is not about retribution, vengeance, punishment, or reward. Karma simply deals with what is. The effects of all deeds actively create past, present, and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one’s own life, and for the pain and joy one brings to others. This small, powerful book explores the “Law of Karma” – central in Hinduism, Ayyavazhi, Sikhism, Buddhism, and Jainism – from both a historical and a spiritual perspective, and explains how to tap it to enrich and enlarge one’s experience of the world.


Karma, from the Sanskrit, means “to do.” Karma is simply the golden rule: what you give out is what you receive. Jeffrey Armstrong introduces the science of karma, reincarnation and the ways in which cause and effect control our lives. Individuals go through certain processes and accompanying experiences throughout their lives, which they have chosen, and are based on the results of their own creation. Karma is not about retribution, vengeance, punishment or reward; it simply deals with what is brought on by the purposeful action of devas, or divine beings. The “Law of Karma” is central in Hinduism, Ayyavazhi, Sikhism, Buddhism, and Jainism (religions born in Nepal and India). Understanding karma broadens our spiritual wisdom and reveals the profound interconnectedness of all life. Karma is part of the Mandala Wisdom Library.

The Mandala Wisdom Library introduces the ancient wisdom traditions of the East as practical tools for creating harmony and stability in todayメs fast-paced world. Topics such as meditation, yoga, reincarnation and sexuality are presented in accessible, popular and visually compelling volumes for today’s “metro-spiritual” lifestyles.
