Thus spoke Sri Ramana Maharshi


As long as we are the performers of actions we have to undergo their consequences but when, as a result of enquiring who the performer is, one knows one-self, the sense of being the performer is lost and one is set free from the karma. The resulting state of Liberation is eternal.

Until realisation there will be Karma, i.e., action and reaction; after realisation there will be no Karma, no world.
