No one escapes from the results of actions. But actions should be done in such a way as to balance ordinary sanskaras by their opposites or “reverse” sanskaras.
Devotion, giving of alms, prayer, bhajan, kirtan, and repetition of God’s name create such sanskaras that burn away ordinary sanskaras. But penance, fasts, and yogic practices create still more bondage. A real fast means to starve the mind, not the body.
