The Sanskrit word Karuna is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It means any action taken to diminish the suffering of one's self and others. It can also be translated to mean "compassionate action". Karuna is not a system or a style of yoga but an acronym utilized to cover all of the information required by Yoga Alliance, the Certifying Authority.
