English term or phrase: Chakra and Karma...
Any idea of how to translat "But you know easy it is to get a kink in your chakra, so you can count on your karma being perfect"
Still ironical, but I am not very acquainted with chakra and karma stuff.
Thanks in advance
Olivier
French translation:chakra/karma
Explanation:
First is the sentence transcribed correctly? Is it possible it could read \"But you know HOW easy it is to get a kink in your chakra...\" This is a play on words with \"kink in your neck\" and \"kink in your chakra\". Chakra in the OED: \"noun (IN Indian thought) each of the centres of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number.\" OED Karma \"the sum of a person\'s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences. So, the way I see it, you may be able to translate it by using some French equivalent of \"kink in the neck\". You may be able to use poetic license and use \"noeud a l\'estomac\" or some other body-oriented idiomatic expression. Does this make sense? I was thinking this, assuming that the \"how\" was left out in the original text: \"tu sais comment il est facile d\'attraper (développer) un noeud au chakra, alors tu peux être sur que ton karma sera parfait.\" This is just an idea...

Explanation:
Je ne pense pas qu'il faille les traduire.
Karma: dogme central de la religion hindouiste selon lequel la destinée d'un être vivant et conscient est déterminée par la totalité de ses actions passées, de ses vies antérieures.
Pouvoir, dynamisme des actes passés en tant que détermination de l'individu transitoire
