The Law of Karma & what you've gotten wrong with Medha Narwani

A lot of people nowadays only have surface-level knowledge about karma. It's often misunderstood and oversimplified in various contexts. For instance, you might be under the impression that karma is the consequence of our own “actions”. You reap what you sow, whether it be good or bad. Surprisingly, it's actually more than just our actions but even our thoughts and words that are considered karma. It has a really profound philosophy.

Maybe you ask, "But how does it relate to yoga?" Well, in today's conversation we're going to discover this and all things karma with Medha Narwani. Medha comes from a family of deep-rooted Vedic values. Her initial career as an economist and life across Australia, the US, and the UK offered her a truly global outlook, but her spiritual curiosity brought her back to India.

There's just so much that Medha unpacks in this conversation, things that might not even be second nature to you but you'll find really fascinating. I feel like this is one of those conversations where you have to listen a few times to really let it sink in!

Medha Narwani

Medha Narwani comes from a family of deep-rooted Vedic values. Her initial career as an economist and life across Australia, US and UK offered her a truly global outlook, but her spiritual curiosity brought her back to India. While she trained under her guru in a guru-shishya tradition, and pursued MSc in yoga, she felt compelled to write her debut novel ‘Mystic Road Warrior’. She strongly believes that traditional yoga is an experiential science- it fundamentally transforms a sincere practitioner.
