Repentance of actions
« on: January 20, 2014, 01:38:35 PM »
Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

Dear Devotees,

I have been seeking to know more on Bhagavan's views on repentance. I understand the root question to ask would be Who is repenting and Who has committed the sin. But then again, before that complete understanding, there still exists an association of self with the body and mind. Therefore, how are partial surrender, repentance and reduction in the bad effects of Karma linked?

It is said that the Sannidhi of the Guru is sufficient to undo the bad effects of the Karma. Could you please explain?

Thank you for shedding some light on this.

Dear Krishnan,

A sincere heart-melting repentance towards God will do all the good.  This is far superior to prayaschittam, actions, various karmas
to remove the sins. 

Arunachala Siva.
