क्या परमात्मा कर्म काट सकता है और पाप नष्ट कर सकता है?
The general consensus amongst saints and rishis is that God cannot forgive our sins. All of them believe that we have to bear the hardships in life which are due to consequences of sins we have either done in the previous lives or the current life. They believe that is the only way to get rid of the bad karma. They believe that कर्म तो भोगने से ही कट सकता है। (karm to bhogne se hi kat sakta hai).
Guru Bhraspati's views on Karma
In Shrimad Devi Bhagwad (published by Gita Press Gorakhpur) Even Guru Bharaspati says to the Gods that the bad deeds done in the past and previous lives have to be exhausted by bearing the ill effects in the current life.
Guru Shukracharya's views on Karma
Like wise in the same Puran, the Guru of Raakshas (demons) i.e. Guru Shukracharya says to the demons that you will have to exhaust the bad deeds by bearing them in your current life. They can't be forgiven.
This is however completely opposite to what is mentioned in the Holy Vedas which says that God can forgive sins. This shows that even the Gurudev of Gods and demons did not have the complete knowledge.
What is the truth
Yajur Ved clearly describes that God can forgive your sins.
Yajurved Adhyay 8 Mantra 13
Yajurved Adhyay 8 Mantra 13 says numerous times that God can forgive sins, even the most heinous sins can be forgiven by God.
Only a True Guru (Satguru) who gives the True Naam (Satnaam) of God can help one get rid of the previous sins by giving true and correct worship in accordance with our Holy Scriptures.
Kabir Sahib says:
कबीर,जबही सत्यनाम हृदय धरयो,भयो पापको नास।
मानौं चिनगी अग्निकी, परी पुराने घास।।
The True Name (satnaam) of God can destroy sins like fire destoys dry grass.
