Episode 18: Karma and the Astral World

Swami Kriyananda

Whatever energy you give out has to come back — that is one way to explain the law of karma. In this question and answer session, also discussed is how to neutralize and overcome karma.

Questions include:

  • Can you explain to us the law of karma and how it works?
  • Will someone who is striving for success automatically experience failure as often as he experiences success?
  • Why would some yogis suggest not to enjoy anything?
  • How do we overcome the emotionally reactive process in ourselves?
  • A master who reaches a breathless state — he’s not holding his breath, is he?
  • Releasing attachment releases pain associated with that attachment?
  • What is the astral body?
  • Does the astral body have a shape or form?
  • Is the astral body the same as the aura?
  • Can an aura be expanded?

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.)
