I've read lately a very informative book called "What Is Karma?" by Paul Brunton, who is a very accomplished writer in the field of metaphysics. I recommand it heartily.

Hi Randall, I don't know how many pages it is since I read a translation, and it would take me some time to know when it was published since I am far from home right now, but I will update as soon as I can. You could google it meanwhile, I guess.

It is not a very long book, but it summerises the issue of Karma from many sides and in depth. It shows the mechanisms of karma in a very clear and informative way, which is an asset, methink, to the reader of our times.

Karma can have many layers to it.

Karma isn't very well understood I think. The adage what goes around comes around is only partially correct. I'll try and expand on it as I comes to terms with it myself.

Any quotes from the book would be welcome though.

One wonders if it's automatic or if there is an intelligence to it.

I don't have access to the book yet, but I don't have it in English. I can try and translate a little bit.

The origin is in English, and I have an Hebrew translation.

I don't think I am that good as to translate it... its contents are:
1. What is karma?
2. The way karma works:
Karma and inner development
Study through doing
Freedom, fate, destination
Freedom and environment
Group karma
Karma and precognition
Timing, cycles, the heat of karma
Personal responsibility
3. Karma and grace
The wonder of grace
Summoning grace
4. Working with karma
Taking action against negative tendencies
Receiving, carrying and overcoming
5.Karma and the great liberation
Beyond personal karma


It's not long, but full of wisdom. I am not trusting myself as to translating parts of it, as I've already mentioned..
