Theory of Karma - Chapter 28
 

28. ACTIONS PERFORMED WITHOUT ANY EGO OF DOING-DOER

In a battle-field (crusade) a warrior slaughters so many persons under the orders of his commander-in-chief as a part of his duty to kill the enemies, dangerous to the society at large, and hence this action of the warrior, void of any ego, does not bind him in the cycle of birth and death. Devoid of self-pride arising from l-doism when one takes activities within the norms of fairness, justice and righteous conduct, in the
spirit of his self-apparent duties, then he is not trapped or enslaved by such actions. Only those Kriyaman Karmas wrapped up in self-pride and sense of self-importance and performed with egoistic mentality are added as Sanchit Karmas and they are to be faced as Prarabdha when matured and ripened in subsequent births.
