Course Objectives:

  • Discuss karma on the level of the individual, relationships, and the community and world at large
  • Examine the most common questions of Western students on the subject of karma such as, "What is karma?" Is it superstition?" "Do you have to believe in reincarnation to understand it?" and, "How do I get rid of 'bad' karma?"
  • Define Karma through exploring the roots of positive and negative karma, how your “good heart” will shape this life and the next, service versus self-attachment, and much more
  • Recognize how a mature view of karma empowers us to steer our lives through conscious choice rather than conditioned behaviors
  • Discuss how Karma gives us a guiding light for living life at the level of cause, not effect, with responsibility and compassion

Of the many Eastern wisdom teachings to have found their way westward, the notion of karma may be the most misunderstood—and most transformative. American-born teacher Pema Chödrön is renowned for making the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism accessible, practical, and relevant for Westerners from all walks of life. But to bring us an understanding of the fundamental concept of karma, Ani Pema called on one of her own guides. On Karma, she is joined by Dzigar Kongtrül Rinpoche to present a two-part teaching session on this challenging subject.

What is karma? Is it superstition? Do you have to believe in reincarnation to understand it? How do I get rid of “bad” karma? In a dialogue both illuminating and provocative, Pema and Kongtrül Rinpoche address the most common questions of Western students, discussing karma on the level of the individual, relationships, and the community and world at large. Session two then brings us an inspirational dharma talk with Dzigar Kongtrül Rinpoche, exploring the roots of positive and negative karma, how your “good heart” will shape this life and the next, service versus self-attachment, and much more.

A mature view of karma empowers us to steer our lives through conscious choice rather than conditioned behaviors. Karma gives us a guiding light for living life at the level of cause, not effect, with responsibility and compassion.

so-so Review by sergio

The Tibetan master on tape may be as proficient as one wishes him to be, but sadly his English is a crude second-year kind of level even if he has been abroad for decades. This is typically the case with these Tibetans.
It's a pity but he struggles to get the point across.
Consider choosing Miles Neale or Pema Chodron instead. (Posted on March 23, 2019)

Great explanation of Karma. Not very scholar, but it wasn't the aim. The first part is a discussion, and the second part is a teaching of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoché. Both are very instructive and complete each others.

It's a must have for everybody wha wants to have a basic idea of Karma. (Posted on March 3, 2014)

Review for Karma Review by Luana Bricco

I found the content intelligent and insightful. It brought me to a new understanding of self-centeredness, blame and how to heal and move on. Beautiful and inspiring. I also found Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche to be an inspired speaker. It may be difficult for a Western to understand the cultural voice, but it becomes familiar as you listen and as you hear more Tibetans speak. If you are holding onto anger due to an incident in the past, this CD offers a clear, and beautiful path for moving on and for spiritual growth because of suffering. (Posted on July 21, 2013)

This was disappointing. The format is kind of strange. The first CD has Pema interviewing Rinpoche. The second CD has Rinpoche in the studio.

Karma is barely mentioned in the second CD and unfortunately Rinpoche is just not a good speaker.

I was really looking forward to an exploration of karma and this set really missed the mark.

I'm still a Pema fan - I also ordered Fear and Fearlessness at the same time and would highly recommend it. (Posted on March 30, 2013)
