Overview

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 often-misunderstood subject.

In part one, these two luminaries engage in a dialogue exploring the traditional meaning of karma, why it is relevant today, and how to begin applying the wisdom of karma in each unfolding moment. Part two brings listeners a profound dharma talk with Dzigar Kongtrül Rinpoche, who explains some of the most important ways to change your karma for the better, starting wherever you are.

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.
