ust before the turn of the 20th century, swami vivekananda, abrilliant
young Hindu monk fom India, eahed about the geat law of kama in the United States to all who dew nea. He exlained, “Any wod,any ation, any thought that odues an effet is alled
kama. Thus, the law of kama means the law of ausation, of inevitable ause and effet. Whateve we seeo feel o do, whateve ation thee is anywhee in the univese, while being the ef-fet of ast wok on the one hand, beomes on the othe, the ause in its tun andodues its own effet. Eah one of us is the effet of an innite ast. The hild isusheed into the wold not as something ashing fom the hands of natue, as oetsdelight so muh to deit, but he has the buden of an innite ast. Fo good oevil, he omes to wok out his own ast deeds. This makes the diffeentiation. Thisis the law of kama. Eah one of us is the make of his own fate.”
