Investigation into causality across lifetimes, whether or not as a reward for good deeds or a punishment for evil. We show how the oldest scriptures knew already of yoga and ātman before
learning of reincarnation and karma, and how the well-known retributive karma doctrine (one’s destiny as reward or punishment for past good and evil) is but a vulgar and inconsistent un-yogic version of what karma really means. So, what does karma really mean?

Teacher Bio: Dr. Koenraad ELST (°Leuven, Belgium, 1959) earned Master degrees in Sinology, Indology and Philosophy, and wrote his doctoral dissertation on 20th-century Hindu Revivalism. He worked as a foreign desk journalist, assistant in the Belgian Senate, columnist, and guest professor in two Indian universities. But his main output is found in his 30+
books (English and Dutch) and other publications, mainly on ancient and contemporary history of India and on the comparative history of thought in Europe and Asia.
