Most people are familiar with the word "karma" but the popularized version of karma is often a mere caricature of this profound cosmological principle. Some people think of karma as a system of rewards and punishments that are confined to a single lifetime. Of course, this is a simplistic and erroneous view. Karma operates at many levels: physical, emotional, and mental. The painful lessons that karma sometimes brings us are not meant to be punitive, but as a means to educate the soul how to live in greater harmony with the laws of the universe. Using many anecdotal stories based on her lifetime of work with people suffering from various kinds of ailments, Dora illustrates how thoughts and emotions generate powerful karmic effects. 1986. 67 minutes.
