Bound by the law of Karma

“…By a special dispensation of God, also, the very highest type of devotee, whose whole being is permanently focused on the divine beloved, is as completely exempt from the law of karma as the Dnyani (God-realised soul). Unlike the Dnyani, however, such a devotee is utterly ignorant of this exemption.

“But the ordinary devotee, no matter how sincere his devotion, remains bound by the law of karma, and so his best course is to apply this law to his own spiritual advantage by the constant practice of virtue and the constant abstention from evil. And when he fails in virtue, or falls into sin, he must throw himself on the boundless mercy of God and ask his forgiveness.”

-The Awakner, 1:1, July, 1953
