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.

It is not a matter of becoming the Self, but of realizing that you never were not the Self. And what is that Self? It is Parasiva. It is God. It is That which is beyond the mind, beyond thought, feeling and emotion, beyond time, form and space.
—Gurudeva
