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.

We begin to consciously dance with Siva, to move with the sacred flow that surrounds us, to accept praise and blame, joy and sorrow, prosperity and adversity in equanimity, the fruit of understanding.
