We naturally would expect that a trained athlete, focused on conditioning the body, and carrying out an intense program of development of the physical capacity, would be the Olympic athlete. The consequences of bad Karma may not be limited to just lack of success but might manifest as inner sadness or personal losses etc.

Ravan — had won all the heavenly Gods, had a capital where all the buildings were of gold Golden Lanka , his fame was spread in the entire world, his power was acknowledged and feared by everyone. But — was deceitful, corrupt, disrespectful, antisocial, selfish, egomaniac, etc.
Very similar to a modern day corrupt politician! Ram — had all the knowledge of Vedas, very humble, a very good administrator, social, law-abiding Maryada — Purushottam , but — was sentenced to 14 Yrs of exile before being crowned, his wife Sita was kidnapped while he was in forest, had to roam around in search of her, then again got separated with her while he was a king — basically there was always struggle in his life. If you look closely, we say that Ram was successful because it is written in Ramayan and this knowledge is passed to us through grandparents, various TV shows, etc.
The important thing to note is that in this case, karma and success are defined in the same place — in the book itself.

The Vedas etc define a person to be successful when he is highly spiritual when he has won over anger, malice, and greed. But in the modern world, all the definitions have changed — power and money from THE matrix to compare people. According to the text, this is what is called Maya or false attractions and temptations that are sources of bondage to this physical world. Based on this we can now see how the corrupt people are far away from being successful — according to the literature.

Nevertheless, I found this book to be enjoyable and absorbing, it being a "different" sort of thriller portraying a group of people dedicated to eliminating unethical methods in the corporate world. The main characters on the side of "good" are Francis, Jo and Dhammakarati.

Francis, a charming man born to wealth but with a murky family background, has made it his life work to combat greed and corruption in big business.
To this end he has built up an expert team of fellow-collaborators. Jo, his friend and lover, is his main accomplice; she is a master of disguise, trained in the ancient martial art of bando, skilled in meditation and possessing immense self-discipline and emotional control mostly. She is the one chosen for the most demanding and dangerous missions. Dhammakarati is Jo's dear friend, a Buddhist warrior monk. The main adversaries of this righteous band are the ruthlessly ambitious Schwartz and his murderously cold associate de Lingua.
One of the interesting features of the book is the insight provided into the monastic world, the quiet disciplined life of daily meditation. One of the themes, though I feel it could have been elaborated on, is the dichotomy between the spiritual ideals and aims of the protagonists and the necessity of carrying out forcible measures. The very concept of a warrior monk exemplifies this dichotomy.
The book is on the whole extremely well-written, though there a few typos and the like, and it thus could have done with more efficient editing. The author has a gift for physical description and her main characters are psychologically realistic. Perhaps certain aspects of the plot and characterization could have been more fully developed. The book is thought-provoking, since we are left with the question: Dec 13, Steve Palm-houser rated it really liked it.

This book started off like one of the "Mission Imposible Movies", tons of action, but then it slows down to a lesser pace when you meet all the people. The murdered victims were both monks but we had little to go by other than the first one ran off from the murder's family.

Otherwise it was a good story line. May 07, Daniel Ace rated it really liked it. First, this isn't for everybody. I would classify it as "thriller-lite". A blend of financial Robin Hood mixed with philosophy. All that in mind, I did enjoy it. It's good to try something different now and then. This worked for me.
