That Karma which is done in a previous life which produces the present life is mere religious theory, because when ‘ego’ itself is not self, and the true self is birth less entity because it is formless. But such Karma theory has no value in the realm of truth, as self has no birth. The one which is born, lives and dies is the false entity within the false experience.
Just as the body and the world in a dream is superimposed and therefore illusory, so is also this body and the world in the waking is superimposed. The birth, life, death and world are part of the waking experience and waking is superimposed, and in the absence of waking, which contains the body and the world there is no room for karma at all.
The ignorance to be verily the material /cause) of the waking/dream just as water is of a cloud. If the ignorance is destroyed, how can the three states subsist?
Just as a person out of confusion perceives only the snake leaving aside the rope, so does an ignorant person experiences the world/dream within the waking without knowing their reality? The real nature of the rope being known, the appearance of the snake no longer persists; so the substratum being known, the waking no longer remains as real.
