Hare Krishna to all,I have a question. Please answer me. As we know that every action has its reaction to the doer. Any action done by us whether it be pious or sinful, we are bounded to suffer or enjoy accordingly. In this way, we are entangled in this material world. Is there any way to make our actions without binding us with their reactions so that we are not bounded to this material world because until we do not enjoy or suffer all our reactions we are not liberated. As far as chanting is concerned it nullifies the reactions our sinful activities but what about our pious activities?Please tell a way with a daily life example by which a person can act without bounded by its reaction.

  • I like krishna's formula
    For getting out from the
    the impersonal quagmire of this lower world experience When He explained it to Arjuna on the battle field. "All That You do, All That You Say, all that You Eat Offer or Give away, Should be done-as a sacrifice to VISHNU, (in that way) "giving up all good & bad karmic reactions, at the end of this Life-time, you will go to Him."
    As for just keeping all your karmic reactions of a positive quality, it is said "that it can't be done 100 % successfully-( "karma will always (Ebb&flow)-probably because we will always be somewhat offensive by our actions or lack there of.?-(
  • Hare Krishna!

    Please Accept My Humble Obeisances.

    Kindly watch the following video: The Wheel of Karma by H.G. Mathura Vasi Devi Dasi

    The above video explains -

    • What is Karma?
    • How does the Law of Karma work?
    • Can we change our future based on our current actions?
    • How to become free from the bonds of the endless cycle of Karmic reactions? 
    • What actions we must engage ourselves in, as prescribed in our bonafide Vedic texts in order to not get bound by its reactions.

    Kindly try to imbibe these in your daily practices. Gradually as you purify yourself further and progress spiritually you will become habituated to performing flawless actions as guided by the Supreme Lord Himself.

    Your Servant,

    Mathura Vasi Devi Dasi.

  • God is indifferent toward pious or impious activities, but He is attracted with calling His name in a helpless condition.

    Sacrifice of this temporary body for others isnt pious, its transcendental activity.


    SB 9.21.12I do not pray to the Supreme Personality of Godhead for the eight perfections of mystic yoga, nor for salvation from repeated birth and death. I want only to stay among all the living entities and suffer all distresses on their behalf, so that they may be freed from suffering.
    SB 9.21.13By offering my water to maintain the life of this poor caṇḍāla, who is struggling to live, I have been freed from all hunger, thirst, fatigue, trembling of the body, moroseness, distress, lamentation and illusion.

  • Real truth is that soul who reside in material body is just observer of activities of material nature,

    but because of illusion condition soul thinks "im this body and everything related with that body is mine " ,

    therefore soul continue to be bounded.

  • Dear Radha Rasamayi, 

    Hare Krishna! Maybe the work that we do that is free from bad karma/result of one`s actions are these.

      Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


      All these activities mentioned by you are coming within pious/ altruistic activities. THey have reactions - pious reactions, good reactions. Like this, when the sukriti of a person increases to a level, then he gets the mercy of devotion through a devotee. The reaction is positive, but reaction is there. It cannot be avoided. Only and only devotional service has no reaction.

      Hare Krsna Pia ji,

      The answer is in Gita - Yad Karosi, yad asnasi, yajuhosi, dadasi yat..... whatever you do, whatever you eat ....do it as a service to Me. If we develop this attitude and mood, then we will be doing everything as a service to Krsna. That will make us do all good deeds only. Reaction or no reaction depends on our consciousness level - the deed remains the same, the consciousness determines whether there is reaction or not. So if we are doing in full Krsna Consciousness, there will be no reaction.

      Example is a famous story - in one street a high level brahmana and a prostitute, both stayed. Every day the brahmana would be doing arati in the temple, giving lectures and doing devotional service. i will  complete later.... sorry I have to rush!!!

        Hare Krsna,

        I am sorry I left my example in the middle yesterday. To complete:

        Example is a famous story - in one street a high level brahmana and a prostitute, both stayed. Every day the brahmana would be doing arati in the temple, giving lectures and doing devotional service. Everyday he would look at the prostitute and think what a fallen soul, why she has to stay here, the entire lane is corrputed because of her presence. On the other hand, the prostitute would look at the brahmana and think what a pious soul, I am so fallen I cannot even converse with him... this lane is purified by his presence. When both died, the prostitute got delivered and the brahmana went to hell. When questioned, Yamaraj replied - the prostitute may been doing sinful activity, but she was pious and respectful to a devotee and humble, whereas the brahmana may be doing pious activities, but he was constantly thinking of the prostitute, deriding her mentally. Therefore, he became fallen.

        I hope I have been able to explain.


        Your servant,

        Radha Rasamayi DD

        • Hari bol mataji,

          There is lot to learn from this example.

          • does this example mean that I can keep eating nonveg but be pious and respectful to devotees and I will gain liberation???

            • E-Counselor

              No Prabhuji. Krsna Consciousness is an austerity, a choice we make to please Krsna, to put Krsna above us, His desires above ours. Can you please any father by  killing His son and eating the son and then going in front of the father and say, Oh I love YOu?

              4 regulative principles have to be followed under all circumstances without exception.

              If you continue to be pious and respectful to devotees, you are likely to leave non veg sooner than you imagine. It doesnt garauntee liberation.

              I think one of the things you could do is change your id name - you are saying "Sinful" instead of "satish", you are not able to get out of sins. Maybe if you say your name or a better id name, you would be doing positive auto suggestion.


              Your servant.
