From determining our lifespan to influencing how we think and act, our karmas (past actions and their fruits) powerfully shape our current experience. In the third session (sutras 2:10–2:17) of the Practice of the Yoga Sutra Book Club, Ishan Tigunait explores how the karmic wheel works and how the spiritual seeker can meaningfully engage with it. Find out how to harness its momentum and transform it into a force of liberation.

To prepare for the next session, please read sutras 2:18–2:27 in Pandit Tigunait’s The Practice of the Yoga Sutra: Sadhana Pada.
