PrashantAdvait Foundation announced that the book titled Karma: Why Everything You Know About It Is Wrong published by Penguin Random House and authored by Acharya Prashant has topped the charts according to Nielsen Book Scan, the country’s most authoritative sales tracker, which includes the sales data of Amazon and Flipkart, and other major book chain stores.
The book demolishes the myths surrounding action and decision by bringing to focus the actor, rather than action. When we ask, ‘What to do?’, the book handholds us into ‘Who is the doer? What does he want from the deed?’ This shift provides the solutions, and finally the dissolution of the question.
According to Acharya Prashant, ” With means to do a lot, today we ask more than ever: What to do? The explosive success of the book bears testimony that people are increasingly ready to get rid of false spiritual notions and understand Right Action, as envisaged by Vedanta. Vedanta will have to be understood as a solution to not just mankind’s global problems like climate change and pandemics, but also day to day problems like mental conflicts. I feel humbled to be a medium for this task through my book Karma: Why Everything You Know About It Is Wrong.”
“Acharya Prashant is a world-renowned spiritual leader who has considerably changed the way we approach spirituality, faith in the world today. Not just that, he actively campaigns against superstition. In his recent book ‘Karma: Why Everything You Know About It Is Wrong’. He demolishes the myths about doing the right action and brings the focus back on the action. No wonder the book has resonated with so many and has opened in its first week at Number 1, soon to be a national bestseller. I’m so proud to have got the chance to publish this book and at Penguin Press we look forward to working with Acharyaji on many more bestsellers”, said Ms. Shreya Punj, Commissioning Editor, Penguin Press.
