Scholars say, it is impossible to escape karma. What they say is true to a certain extent. Now, one may wonder if there is a way to escape from the consequences of karma. Yes, it is possible for everyone, if they ‘earn’ the grace of God. Once  we deserve and receive God’s grace, we will not be affected by karmaphala (consequences of Karma). Hence, we must strive to earn divine grace. When we earn Divine grace, even if we have to experience the consequences of karma,  we will not feel the pain. There is an example of a bottle with medicine. The medicine will have an expiry date. After the expiry date, the medicine will lose its potency. Likewise, God’s grace will make the karmaphala ‘expire’, and nullify the effects of karma. The most important aspect here is to ‘deserve’ His Grace. One must cultivate necessary strength and willpower to deserve divine grace, and be free from the shackles of karma.
