No one else can make this offer.

All the karmas, that means whatever that person destiny was, that all the negative aspects will be taken off just by surrendering to Krishna. Then there’s… only Krishna can offer this, nobody else can offer, only Krishna through His representative this offer can be made, no one else can make this offer, Buddha never made the offer. Even if you surrender to Buddha in terms of the material, his… his teaching, that he was giving materialistic teaching, even though he was an avatar of Visnu, they had to take the karma, that facility they didnt get, even he was very austere, he was may be more austere than we were, he was eating once a day, not eating after 12 noon to be a Buddhist monk is… is very… especially in those days it was very strict, whatever they put in your begging bowl you will eat, nothing else, they were very austere, only wearing one cloth, certain way, type of sannyas… that good karma does not neutralize bad karma, he was doing good karma, for that austerity he will get happiness if he wants to cash in on it, but it won’t neutralises bad karmas, that he’ll have to suffer. But actually by surrendering unto Krishna one gets rid of karma.
