Here is a work that deals with the Doctrine of Karma in all its comprehensiveness and covers all its conceiveable facets in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Essentially the approach is historical. It traces the genesis of the doctrine in the early Vedic literature, and explains how from a doctrine of sacrificial karma it becomes an ethical doctrine in the Upanisads. In addition it also explains how the concept of transmigration to another world or loka, such as heaven, becomes the doctrine of punarjanma, rebirth, in this world.

The doctrine of Karma had profound effect on the cultural practices in India. To get round the rigours of the 'law' of karma, which operates inexorably and invariably, certain religious practices were involved, besides tapas or austerities, such as japa (recitation of sacred texts), dana (charity), tirthayatra (pilgrimage), vrtas (fasts), and performance of rituals (karmakanda). The book also investigates critically certain modern misconceptions about karma. In truth karma is the master conductor of the composite Indian cultural orchestra, harmonizing different and varied notes and tunes.
