Karma and the Jivanmukti


Occasionally a question comes in that inspires Gurudeva to expound deeply upon the subject. So it is today with the intruiging question, "Does the Jivanmukta still make karma?" Gurudeva first talks about those who are still living in the external mind and the creation of karma there. Then he discusses the Jivanmukti, one who has broken through these cycles and realized the Self many, many times. His karma is like writing on water.

The teachings of yoga are so basically simple and so basically concrete. And the most beautiful thing in the world, on contemplation, is the simplest thing in the world. The most beautiful design is the simplest design.
