the person is doing some sinful activity and then the person may be doing some sacrifice. So that sinful activity is counteracted by the sacrifice. But, what happens is that if that person doesn’t chant Hare Krishna regularly, if the person doesn’t have any sadhana then actually the heart doesn’t become purified. The actual karmas may become purified. Suffering and enjoying may be adjusted, but the heart, the attraction to Krishna that doesn’t get uh, purified by some ordinary just donation or some ordinary just manual labor.
