Aghora III: The Law of Karma


by Robert Svoboda”It’s always better to live with reality, because otherwise, without fail, reality will come to live with you.” – The Aghori VimalanandaThe Law of Karma, which is one of the most profound and fiendishly perplexing of reality’s axioms, is the Law of Cause and Effect, the law of “as you sow, so shall you reap.” The oldest of the Upanishads expresses it this way: “Truly, one becomes good by good action and bad by bad action.” This law is better known to most of us as Newton’s Third Law of Motion: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is the third and final volume of the Aghori trilogy. The Aghori Vimalananda uses the backdrop of the Bombay racetrack as a potent metaphor for the ultimate game of life, where destinies and fortunes are forged or lost on the momentary edge of the finishing line. Vimalananda masterfully weaves the flamboyant external reality of the racecourse with the subtle internal reality of creative spirituality.
