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.

To the Saivite Hindu, all of life is sacred. All of life is religion. Thus, Saivite art is sacred art, Saivite music is devotional music, and the Saivite's business is not only his livelihood, it is his service to man and God.
