From the Jacket:

The law of causation or that of karma includes the law that the like produces the like, or that every action must be followed by a reaction of similar nature. In the face of this universal law of karma, there is no room for the hypothesis of predestination and grace. This law of karma is inevitable. Every creature is bound to face this law. But there are many ways by which we can escape from the chain of this law and Karma Yoga is one of them. Doctrine of Karma discloses the secret of that escape.

This volume consists of the precious lectures on Doctrine of Karma and Philosophy of Work, delivered in America by Swami Abhedananda in course of his spiritual ministration in the West. These lectures of the Swami, expounding the philosophy of work in the lucid and vigorous style of his own, are most illuminating and will help us to get eternal happiness in life.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
