The good and bad Karma done by the Jiva earlier with the previous body is indeed to be experienced here by the being. And the Karma done here is experienced hereafter. Thus is the rule of the Karma of the confused Jivas. Such beings rotate continually like a wheel. But there is a difference with regard to the wise who are devoted and contented. The beings ascertained with intellect that the Gunas contained in the body and sense organs act only for their own enjoyment. And he who does his duty thinking 'I am not the agent of the action', 'it does not pertain to me', is not bound by the action in any way.

The Karma earned prior to the awakening of knowledge is indeed burnt by the fire of knowledge. By no means does it become capable of giving rise to the birth of the embodied one.

Just as the butter taken from the milk does not again become milk when thrown back into it, similarly the knower is a knower forever.
