Many people believe that what we put out into the world comes back to us. Whether it’s called the law of attraction, fate, grace or kismet, the word “karma” exists in every culture in different forms. But what is karma, really?

In this video, Sadhguru – yogi, visionary, entrepreneur and beloved friend of Tony and Sage – sits down to discuss identity, consciousness, inner freedom, human evolution and the true meaning of karma. Watch the video to learn:

Why humans often seek bondage over freedom
How to sever the ropes that tie us down
Two ways to liberate karma
Why being human is the greatest gift

Who is Sadhguru?

Sadhguru is an Indian yogi, mystic and visionary. He is the author of two best-selling books, Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy and Karma: A Yogi’s Guide to Crafting Your Destiny, which he discusses in the video. He’s also a renowned speaker and has even been named one of India’s 50 most influential people. Sadhguru travels the world sharing his unique perspective on life – and how to live it well – with everyone from the United Nations to halls of Harvard and Yale.

Always a free spirit and gifted with clarity and purpose, Sadhguru is a true luminary of our time and offers in this interview a fresh understanding of karma and its common misperceptions.

The truth about karma

The idea of karma can be comforting, but it can also be dangerous. As Sadhguru explains in the video, the saying “My life is my karma” really means “My life is my making.” Humans have a unique ability to choose our lives, our futures and our karma.

Our karma actually has the ability to enhance our lives if only we choose to use our past, and our memories of it, in ways that serve our perception of life, personal evolution, and spiritual growth. When you free your consciousness, you can explore the full potential of your life and embrace true karma.
