IN A NUTSHELL: KARMA AND REBIRTH

by | Read by Jinananda

Philosophy & Religion • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

While the concepts of rebirth and some version of karma are found in many cultures, this short, informative recording focuses primarily on the Buddhist tradition. Jinananda explains how karma works and, more importantly, why misfortunes in this life do not necessarily imply wicked acts in a past life. Particularly fascinating are the remarkable recorded accounts of memories being transferred from dying men to small children half a country away. Jinananda is an excellent reader of his own work. He is clearly invested in the text, and his calm, intelligent tone makes the sometimes-mind-bending theories perfectly clear. This is a well-executed introduction to the Buddhist tradition of karma. At the very least, it will get listeners thinking. A.H.A. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
