There is no standard by which to judge something to be right and another to be wrong. Opinions differ according to the nature of the individual and according to the surroundings. They are ideas, and nothing more.

Dear prasanth,

Yes.  There is no right or wrong. Both are concepts. If a soldier
shoots ten Pakistani soldiers, then he gets Vir Chakra. If I shoot
ten civilians on the streets of Bangalore, I shall be imprisoned and
executed. The same act, varies as good or bad.



Arunachala Siva.

Bad habits and bad conduct are like a wound in the body. Every disease must be given appropriate treatment.

When there is no "I" there is no karma (destiny).

DEar sir,

Bhagavan says, this body itself is a diseased so it must be treated appropriate treatment. Self inquiry is the best treatment, easily available.

Until realization, there will be karma, that is, action and reaction. After realization, there will be no karma, and no world.

Dear sirs,

After realisation Bhagavan was doing all sort of works like cutting vegetables, reading and correcting. The only difference is they never think that all the work is done by them. There would not be "I"ness so they are free from the karmic fruits. Is not it?

Dear ramanaduli,

This is what many people ask. How can one without ego/mind/thought work, cut vegetables, write poems and speak to people? 

Muruganar answers this question in Guru Vachaka Kovai, Verse 1139:

If asked, "We actually see the Jnani performing actions. How can actions be performed in the absence of doership? You should be convinced that because his inner attachment [the ego] is dead, he has the Self Himself residing in his Heart and performing those actions.

Day by Day - entry dt. 5th May 1946:

Sri Bhagavan: And if it is held that a man cannot be considered a Jnani so long as he performs actions in the world [and action is impossible without a mind], then not only the great Sages who carried oujt various kinds of work after attaining Jnana must not
be considered Jnanis, but the gods also and Iswara Himself, since He continues looking after the world. The fact is that any amount of action can be performed, and performed quite well, by the Jnani without his identiying himself with it in any way or ever imagining he is the doer. Some power acts through his body and uses his body to get the work done.

eg. Sri Bhagavan, Sri Sankara, KaduveLi Siddhar.

Yes Sir, it is not easy to or i would say it is not possible to define the state of Bhagavan or define the state of the "Self"..  Normal human mind with ego, always wants to understand everything in some logical way or some way other. That is one reason why many people had such questions and even some devotees tend to describe saying ' Bhagavan is in so and so state, so his mind is in that state to act without ego ' which is again incorrect...  A Brahma Jnani's state cannot be defined fullest ! some expressions with comparisons can be given, still that is not just what is said.

HIS state and HIS actions cannot be defined, one can only try to explain.  If it is from GOD, it has to be accepted immediately, without any questions.

Unless the doer of all karmas (actions) -- the ego -- is annihilated through Inquiry, the perfect peace of Supreme Bliss, which is the result of Karma Yoga, cannot be achieved.
