Karmani nirdahati kintu ca bhakti-bhajam [Bs. 5.54]. In the Brahma-samhita this is, that “Those who have taken to Krsna consciousness, their karma, their action of, resultant action of karma, is stopped.” How it is stopped? Krsna gives you assurance in the Bhagavad-gita: aham tvam sarva-papebhyo moksayisyami. “I shall give you protection from all kinds of resultant action of your sinful life. You just surrender to Me.” Krsna can do everything. Just like king can give you, excuse you. Although by law you are condemned to death, but if you appeal to the supreme executive, the king or the president, if he likes, he can excuse you. Similarly, by nature’s law we cannot be freed from the resultant action of our sinful life. That is not possible. But if Krsna desires, if Krsna is pleased upon you, He can excuse, He can excuse you.
