Sadhguru is a true luminary of our time and offers in this interview a fresh understanding of Karma and its common misperceptions. Removing the stigma of “good Karma” or “bad Karma,” Sadhguru explains that 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.
