we engage in devotional service, we chant Hare Krsna, then our body becomes free from these influences. We become free, and then we can realize that natural freedom and happiness that comes with it. So even a person is free from the influences still another question is there, what about all the previous acts we have done? What about the reactions for those? You see, just like so many animals are killed so… so we can eat them. Or just as punishment, sometimes as little children they pull apart the insects, sometimes they play with snakes and they chop off their tails. Sometimes they do so many cruel things without thinking about it. And those all will bring reactions in the future. This is the law of karma, no one can escape.
