Theory of Karma - Chapter 25
 

25. ACTIONS PERFORMED UNDER UNCONSCIOUS,
INSANE AND INTOXICATED STATE OF MIND

A lunatic, mad man is totally unconscious about the consequences of his wrong deeds which he has performed without any bias in mind due to any sort of aversion or
attachment, likes or dislikes or ego. Hence, at the most he may be awarded some instant retribution, light or severe punishment or be beaten or may be sent to a lunatic asylum for improvement. Thus he gets punished for his Kriyaman Karmas during the present lifetime and therefore they are not added as Sanchit Karmas for punishment in their subsequent births. Nobody can be punished twice for the same offence.
