More About Course

Paramhansa Yogananda Karma and Reincarnation

“To understand Karma, you must realize that thoughts are things. The very universe, in the final analysis, is composed not of matter but of consciousness. Matter responds, far more than most people realize, to the power of thought. For will power directs energy, and energy in turn acts upon matter. Matter, indeed, IS energy”—Paramhansa Yogananda

The study of Karma and Reincarnation places our life, all of our experiences, and the direction we’re going into a broader, more meaningful context. As you study the material of this course, you will find ‘the whys’ of life becoming more clear. Why do I act repeatedly in certain ways? Why are some born advantaged and others disadvantaged? Why are some habits so hard to change? Understanding Karma and Reincarnation gives us the tools to work with ourselves in new and improved ways, where love and compassion may lead to self-expansion. We have the power within us to changed our destiny, no matter how challenging life may be. To see life in terms of karma gives us the power to take responsibility for our life and consciously choose to change into a new and better person.
