Book – The Power and Intelligence of Karma and Reincarnation

Book titled “The power and intelligence of Karma and Reincarnation” is authored by Dharma and published by Clink Street Publishing. The book is all about understanding the Hindu concepts of Karma and Reincarnation.

The author states that through Karma and reincarnation a Hindu gets an opportunity to return back and correct the wrongs. This opportunity is unavailable in other religions as one is condemned forever. So the author suggests that instead of asking for forgiveness for our sins we should ask for enlightenment.

Ask that you may see the wrongs you have done, the crimes you have committed, and the people you have hurt. Then you will have the chance to correct those mistakes and make things right. Wouldn’t that make the world a better place?
That is what Karma and Reincarnation are all about. (Chapter 1 Page 3)

The book tries to prove that there is no eternal damnation in Hinduism; every living being gets an opportunity to correct the wrongs and merge with the Supreme Truth.

For Hindus, the main problem with the book is that it is stretched out. There are 30 chapters. The book also deviates from the core theme. By saying too many things the focus is lost and the reader loses interest. There are too many examples, minor stories and real life incidents.

The book is a good read if you are alien to Hinduism and its core teachings. For such people many examples and repetition helps in driving home the point.
