Karma, Astral Travel, Cremation, and Fengshui
Introduction
When Asia, the West, and the rest of the world have been compared, a sense of
opposition has been derived. More so, Asia is usually placed in opposition in terms of
influence and explicit relevance to the West. However, this does not eliminate the fact that a
multitude of ideas, products, and issues that are rampant in the West and the rest of the world
today boast Asia as their origin. For instance, this can be exemplified by the concepts of
astral travel, fengshui, karma, and cremation that have become common sense outside of their
Asian origin. While a considerable influence of Asian knowledge and cultural practices can
be observed on the rest of the world, arguing that these concepts did not originate from Asia
would be mistaken. In the same light, this paper seeks to explore how and why fengshui,
karma, cremation, and astral travel have become commonplace beyond their Asian origin.

The authority of this source can be found in its determination of karma as a pivotal
element of thought linked to South Asia. Its focus on exploring the study of karma further
enhances its usefulness. As part of this research, I will use it to create a connection between
its origin in Asia and its use to inform the philosophical religious and social aspects of life in
the rest of the world
