KARMA is a translation in tone of the BHAGAVAD-GÎTÂ (The Hindoo Bible) by Sir Edwin Arnold.

At the top of the score stands this quotation:

‘I Brahma am! The one eternal God!
And Soul of Souls! What goeth forth from Me
Causing all Life to Live, is Karma called.’

A Pantomime choreography is arranged for the work which can be interpreted with a corp of dancers.
