Only the powerful divine knowledge at the level of intelligence can smash the mental sins
Suppose a bad intention has come into the mind but the intention is not materialized and no body is effected practically in the world. Certainly there will be partial punishment for this mental sin in the hell. How to get rid of this mental sin? Only the powerful divine knowledge at the level of intelligence can smash the mental sins.
The intelligence alone can control the mind. The intelligence is strengthened by the divine knowledge injected by the Sadguru. The mind is strengthened by repetition of sins and temporary experience of false happiness. When the divine knowledge is intensive, the mind is purified and at a stage of climax, even the results of previous sinful deeds are smashed (Jnanaagnih sarva karmani… Gita).
The divine knowledge at climax makes you surrender to God and leads you into the involvement of practical spiritual service in the mission of God without aspiration of any fruit in return. In such a stage, God attracts all the results of your past sins and suffers for your sake. This technique of God is not known to you. Some how you are relieved from all the mental sins and also from all the results of the previous sinful deeds. The mental sins are cancelled by the divine knowledge. The results of previous sinful deeds are cancelled by the interference of God that is resulting by climax of divine knowledge. Therefore, when the service is inevitable, you do it with good intention also so that you will not receive the partial punishment in the hell unnecessarily.
This does not mean that I am encouraging you to do the sin fully and get the full punishment. You have to follow the constitution written by God strictly in this world as far as your behavior towards other souls is concerned. Here, the justice must be followed and the injustice must be discarded. Only in the case of God, you can overlook even the justice for the sake of God which cannot be sin in that particular case only. For the sake of God, you can overlook any other soul including your own self and this shall not be a sin. Infact, it is the Best. If you do not overlook the justice for the sake of God, it shall be a sin. But this special case (nivrutti) cannot be extended into their behavior with other souls(pravrutti).
