Actions & Sins cannot be Eliminated by the Way of Worship Mentioned in Vedas & Gita

In Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 4 Verse 25 to 30, different types of acts of worship have been described.

It has been said that some devotees are doing karmyog by doing hawan yagya, some are engaged in sadhna (restraining) of senses, and some have engaged their senses of actions and senses of knowledge in yagya of knowledge. Some are doing charity (wealth), some are following ascetic practices. Some are fasting intensely; some, considering action to be greater than other practices and study of scriptures, are engrossed in spiritual actions and others are performing the act of bhakti by following the method of Pranayam (in Yoga, Breathing exercise of restraining breath) and are believing that all these acts of bhakti are destroyers of sins.

God Krishna was in the form of Arjun’s guru (like, in Gita Ji Adhyay 2 Shlok 7, Arjun himself is saying that I am your disciple). When Yudhishthir started getting nightmares then they had asked the reason and solution from Sri Krishna Ji (Guru). God Krishna had said that the sins committed in the battle are causing distress to you.

God Krishna had described yagya only to be its solution. Therefore a yagya was performed by the Pandavas with a viewpoint to eliminate their sins.

Later on in Mahabharata, a hunter named Baliya, (who was the soul of Bali), shot an arrow in God Krishna’s foot. At that time, Sri Krishna Ji said to Arjun and all Pandavs that you should go to Himalayas, and being free from attachment, abandoning possessiveness and affection, and overpowering senses and by keeping restraint should do sadhna of Om mantra. As a result all of your (Pandavas) sins would be eliminated. Pandavas did the same. However despite doing the previous yagya, and then performing penance in the himalays, as per the advice of Krishan ji, went to hell.

This proves that sins are not destroyed by the way of worship mentioned in Vedas and Gita Ji, they have to be borne. However these acts (yagya, tapasya) result in other accomplishments, like attainment of supernatural powers and attainment of heaven-great heaven. However sinful deeds are not eliminated.

How can the sins be eliminated?

A devotee who does sumiran (recitation) of Satnaam and Saarnaam (after taking it from a Complete Saint) attains the SatPurush / Supreme God {Sanatan (ancient) Brahm}, and his birth-death end permanently. The worshipper of Supreme God does more of "Gyan Yagya" along with the other four yagyas. Gyan yagya – study of religious texts morning, evening and afternoon, listening to spiritual discourse and reading religious books, and simultaneously also does jaap of Guru Mantra through breaths. That devotee’s sins get destroyed and he / she attains eternal liberation.

I'm a bit confused by this article because everything I've learned so far suggests that everyone faces the consequences of their actions (Karma). If God simply erases people's sins, wouldn't that be unfair? It might encourage individuals to continue wrong and sinful activities without consequence.

Dear reader, we appreciate your perspective on our article. Your confusion may stem from a lack of spiritual understanding. According to Suksham Ved and the Holy Vedas, when a person receives initiation from a complete Guru and consistently chants the Satnam Mantra, forsaking wrongful deeds, Almighty God showers mercy upon that devotee and absolves their sins. Devotees must adhere to various rules and regulations, which steer them away from wrongful activities. Through deeper insights into true spiritual knowledge via the spiritual discourses of Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj and the book Gyan Ganga, you might find clarity.
