“You harm yourself as dust thrown against the wind comes back to the thrower.” — Lord Buddha
Everything we do or say will either bring a positive or negative influence to our present and even future lives. The Law of Society May Not Be Fair… But the Law of Karma is Always Fair, by Benjawan Poomsan, is an enthralling piece that takes the readers into the world of karma. It provides an in-depth understanding of how limitless the law of karma is. No matter what you do or when you do it, karma will always find a way of catching up with you.

This book is a collection of stories about people who are victims of unfair societal laws, such as those affected by domestic abuse, defamation, sexual harassment, and marriage fraud. Borrowing from the teachings of Buddha, the author explains how in one way or another, these individuals were responsible for their predicaments. Being an interpreter for both criminal and civil cases in the U.S. court system, Poomsan narrates some of her court experiences — especially with members of the Thai community who found themselves subject to an unfamiliar American justice system. Deeply affected by their trauma and having questions about how karma may have an influence on the observable universe, Poomsan seeks answers from a supernatural specialist, Kanjana.

I found Poomsan’s writing very educational. Her idea of the existence of a multiverse was particularly intriguing. I could not stop imagining what I might be in another universe or life. The possibility of traveling to other dimensions expanded my mind even further when considering the world of the supernatural. Her explanation of reincarnation was on point, making it easy for non-believers to grasp what she was talking about. Reading Poomsan’s work made me ponder just how mysterious the universe is and how much our physical bodies limit us. What if we could free our souls from our flesh and bone and make repeated journeys to other realms?

The writer did a great job explaining why some people are constantly stuck on the wheel of karma and why bad things happen to good people and vice-versa. The seemingly endless karmic cycle of birth, death, and rebirth is also explored. For many, the concept of reincarnation can be puzzling. But after looking at it from a different perspective, I figured this might be one of the secrets that the universe has in store for us. Getting answers to such questions may indeed require one to go through the “Golden Way” where your astral body can travel to other dimensions, parallel worlds, and past lives. I would recommend this read to people who are interested in having a deeper understanding of how the law of karma operates. If this topic or subjects related to Buddhism are not your thing, then I suggest skipping this book.

I encountered no major issues with the book’s editing — only a few misspellings. I had a wonderful experience reading this piece. Of note, there was no use of expletives in text. I’m glad to rate it 4 out of 4 stars.

This book sounds fascinating and I think I would enjoy reading it. My only problem is that I'm afraid that people who are victims already, such as those with domestic abuse, will continue to think that it is their own fault, and therefore will not attempt to get out of the situation. As we know, that happens too often already. Thanks for a wonderful review!

I think there is more that factors into domestic abuse victims. Many times it's the abuse that causes isolation and there are those that do leave but child protective services get involved and take the children away. I agree with your opinion of the review though and look forward to adding this to my library.

I agree that, unfortunately, people tend to be complacent in this kind of situation, but I'm sure there are plenty of reasons hidden behind the circumstances. One point of view could be related to this book's premise. Thank you for taking the time to read my review, Prisallen!

Being familiar with Buddha's teachings, this book may seem out of fiction. Inspired by true events, there were moments in the story where applying one of the Buddhism laws seemed the most proper answer. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Juliet!🙂
