What is karma really? What is its effect on our lives? Our new video lecture seeks to shed some light on this topic, so famous but at the same time so misunderstood. Derived from Sanskrit, karma means action in all its forms, and also the consequences of our deeds, the balance of good or bad consequences from past actions which thus determine subsequent incarnations. Taken in this way, it not only refers to the retribution of actions, but to their maturation. According to this meaning, there would not be divine intervention in the events, but rather a maturing of the actions in their consequences.
