HOW DO SAINTS GET SANCHIT KARMAS ERADICATED?
(CATECHISM of Param Guru Huzur Maharaj: Answer to Question No. 30)

            There are three types of karmas on account of which jiva takes birth and undergoes pleasure and pain. They are these – Kriyaman, Prarabdh, Sanchit. Kriyaman are those karmas which are performed in this body and the fruit or consequence of a greater part of these is borne there and then. Prarabdh is the type of karma as a result of which one takes birth and is born in a good or bad situation. Sanchit karmas are accumulated separately in every birth and they form part of Prarabdh karmas. When a jiva comes under the protection of a saint then under the influence of love and devotion, Kriyaman karmas specially their branch, the bad karmas are not performed of themselves thereafter and as to the good karmas that are performed, he does not raise any wish for their fruit. On the other hand he does not consider himself to be their doer nor does he take pride in having performed them. And he endured Prarabdh karmas in this very life while Sanchit karmas are endured during meditation and abhyas. Sanchit karmas have a circle which goes round like the Persian wheel of a well. When the time comes for enjoying a karma, desire arises for enjoying it and if the desire be strong that karma is necessarily enjoyed. An abhyasi of Surat Shabda Yoga, however, enjoys it before the time during abhyas itself in meditation; and as during meditation one does not deal with gross body those karmas are enjoyed in the sukshma body itself. There is another principle also, namely, that all karmas are enjoyed according to desire and when the abhyasi by doing regular internal and external Satsang, has gradually given up all the desires of the world and through the strength of devotion and love reaches Trikuti after getting out of the net of Maya, he realizes extreme bliss there. He then gets out of the limits of Maya and all his desires towards this side are completely broken and the circle of Sanchit karmas  stops from going round and is destroyed. In fact, the idea of both the principles is the same. [The Sanchit Karmas Saints partly take upon themselves and are partly undergone by the devotees, as the Saints think proper].

  1. "Mote bandhan jagat ke guru bhakti Kat, jhine bandhan karm ke Kate naam partaap". This needs scientific explanation.
