If you have been duly punished for your sins by the competent king (in today's sense, the law), you need not to suffer again. You will be purified. There is a story of brothers Shankha and Likhita which was said to Yudhishtira by Vyasa. The purpose of telling this story is conveying the importance of rod of chastisement to Yudhishtira.

I am assuming jivanmukta means knowledge of Brahman From Tales and Parables of Ramana Maharishi Once a salt doll went to measure the depth of the ocean.

Yes, he can continue his profession, because bondage and liberation is of mind alone, not the body nor Atman. Is liberation for mind or Atman?

I think it would be better to ask whether the person who attains to jivamukta has a continuation of their Prarabdha karma. If a person is a professor, is it their prarabdha karma to continue as a professor? If their prarabdha karma is to continue as professor, then they will continue as a professor. Remember, however, that a jivamukta is entirely identified ...

A Realised person will be a TRUE karma yogi. Following is the excerpt from Sri Ramana Maharshi's life. Mr. Rangachari, a Telugu pandit in Voorhees' College of Vellore, asked about ...
