Episode 20: Group Karma

Swami Kriyananda

You can’t change karma that was created in the past, but you can change how that karma affects you.
  • You were discussing karma earlier; could you explain family karma, group karma?
  • Is there any way to alleviate group karma?
  • How could Germany offset their karma from World War II?
  • In turbulent times of atomic warfare, the only truly reliable bomb shelter is within?
  • On a smaller scale, when we’re trying to go in a direction that’s different from our family karma, for example, how can we make our own way?
  • Do animals have karma?
  • Freedom from karma means what? What would it mean in the case of a master like Yogananda?
  • Can a non-enlightened person take on the karma of others?
  • Are karma and magnetism related?

Ask Me About Truth

Swami Kriyananda answers questions about truth and many spiritual subjects, as he learned about them directly from Paramhansa Yogananda. (These talks were recorded in 2012, before Swami Kriyananda's passing.)
