Hello, I have a few inquiries regarding karma.

As I understand it, our karma is deposited in our protoplasmic bodies, and this is why it recurrs and is only ended through death. My questions are, what are the effects of mantras, invocations, conjurations, and prayers on our karma. Do they pay bad karma, or do they only put us in a position where we will be able to through death? If someone was to only sit in a cave and meditate on mantras, invoke the Lord, ect, what effect would this have on their karma?

Again, what is the difference between paying karma through good deeds and through conscious death?

Also, are karmic bonds created through sex destroyed through the second death/Resurrection?

Thank you.

Esoteric practices such as mantra, vocalization, invocations, conjurations and prayers help us to establish serenity of mind and penetrative insight, known as Mo Chao, serene reflection, or the development of concentration and imagination. Concentration and imagination aid us toward comprehension. Comprehension is what we constantly seek to cultivate on a moment to moment basis and especially through meditation.

Now in consideration of karma, we can pay our debts by learning to receive the effects of our previous actions with rectitude and love. We need to learn how to receive the unpleasant manifestation of our fellow men. This is part of the work of the transformation of impressions. We pay our debts by learning to receive such experiences in life without reacting, but acting under a superior law.

Superior action transcends karma, not repetition of a mantra or meditation on a specific deity. Many "spiritual" people think that by simply repeating a mantra they will be saved. What they fail to realize is that these practices can only help one to know oneself. These practices can only help us to cultivate a superior state of mind by which to properly act. If we learn about the inherent causes of our suffering but do nothing to eliminate them, then we will continue to perform mistaken action. Our actions determine our life.

The superior law washes away the inferior law. The way that we learn to act in accordance with the superior law is through mystical death. If the "I" does not die, the soul, the precursor to spiritual and upright action, cannot be born. Ego is the crystallization of karma. When the karma associated with a specific ego is exhausted, if we have learned to restrain this given defect and not feed it within those critical moments in which it arose, if there is comprehension of the inherent cause of that defect within meditation, then the Divine Mother can eliminate it through her sexual-electric power. Then we will know how to act in accordance with the Law (the Glorian).

From the Bhagavad-Gita, Second Discourse: Sankhya Yoga, translated by Swami Sivananda:
14. The contacts of the senses with the objects, O son of Kunti, which cause heat and cold and pleasure and pain, have a beginning and an end; they are impermanent; endure them bravely, O Arjuna!

15. That firm man whom surely these afflict not, O chief among men, to whom pleasure and pain are the same, is fit for attaining immortality!

38. Having made pleasure and pain, gain and loss, victory and defeat the same, engage thou in battle for the sake of battle; thus thou shalt not incur sin...

47. Thy right is to work only, but never with its fruits; let not the fruits of actions be thy motive, nor let thy attachment be to inaction.

48. Perform action, O Arjuna, being steadfast in Yoga, abandoning attachment and balanced in success and failure! Evenness of mind is called Yoga.

49. Far lower than the Yoga of wisdom is action, O Arjuna! Seek thou refuge in wisdom; wretched are they whose motive is the fruit.

50. Endowed with wisdom (evenness of mind), one casts off in this life both good and evil deeds; therefore, devote thyself to Yoga; Yoga is skill in action.

51. The wise, possessed of knowledge, having abandoned the fruits of their actions, and being freed from the fetters of birth, go to the place which is beyond all evil.
As it says in the Bhagavad-Gita, you cannot transcend karma by doing good deeds alone. What matters is our psychological attitude and perception of the moment. Our mind precedes phenomena, we become what we think, to quote the Buddha.

Higher than the yoga of action (Karma) is wisdom, to quote the Bhagavad-Gita. Wisdom is Christ in the Hebraic Kabbalah, meaning: the perception of the truth. Our actions will produce greater harmony if we remember God, here and now, and work to eliminate the causes of our errors. Therefore it is our perception that matters most, sinces determines our life or level of being.

Do good, but you must be beyond good, meaning: to not crave results. One must not fall under good and evil, but be beyond good and evil through the act of comprehension. This scripture explains this very well.

From my extremely limited understanding, Karma is completely paid either through the Second Death or through the process of Resurrection. However, only Resurrection produces objective knowledge. The other path, that of the lunatics, only produces pain and sorrow.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
