Retire your Family Karma

November 25, 2017

  • The Heritage Room, University College, University of Melbourne40 College CrescentParkville, VIC, 3052vAustralia


Life in the West, and increasingly in the East, is lived in the fast lane. Technology is moving forward at an exponential pace. The standard of material living is gradually rising in the industrialized and developing nations. We are exploring and exploiting the treasures of Mother Earth, sometimes enhancing but more often depleting the resources for our grandchildren and future generations. As we harvest the gifts of our civilization, it is crucial that we calculate the karmic price tag. Karma is the Hindu concept of the choices we make and the consequences those choices bear. What kind of legacy are we leaving for future generations? As individuals, families, and communities, what emotional ledger sheet are we leaving for the future? Who will retire the consequences of karma we leave behind, when we leave this life with unfinished business?
