"Hare Krsna Sunil Prabhu!
While karma plays a role in the events of our life, that doesn't mean we hold ourselves down when something sinful is happening. When we address karma, it's to explain why a certain event happened or is happening, not…"
"Prabhu, you are confusing salvation in Kali Yuga with salvation in the various other Yugas which should not be done because there really is no comparison. This Yuga is the worst of all Yugas. Further, the cases you state are very very rare.
