In Yoga the concept of positive Karma and the concept of negative Karma are not a global opposition, and it is essentially the same thing, but with a different impact. Sometimes I hear that the purpose of Yoga is to get rid of negative Karma. No, the goal of Yoga is to get rid of bad Karma and good Karma and of the law of Karma in general, to be free from this law. And there is a question: how to bring it to life. Yoga says that there is a sequence: first, do good deeds, in order to neutralize the bad previous cases, and then when bad things are neutralized you can get rid of good Karma and a bad Karma at the same time.
In this course you will learn about Karma Yoga. Karma Yoga is a very interesting kind of yoga, useful and practical, although at first glance it seems to be not quite yoga in the usual sense. There are no physical exercises required. The very word "karma" is rather popular nowadays, but people do not understand its true meaning. Yoga says that everybody has his own life conditions, or our karma. These conditions are the result of our actions that we have done before in the past. So karma is not something accidental, mystic, but it is a product of your previous actions. And when we say the word "karma", we must understand that first of all we mean the law of cause and consequence. The law of karma is the law of logic. So there is no force in the Universe that punishes us, we just receive the results of our previous actions. Karma yoga will help you to put attention on the areas where we do not act logically.
