The Jains believe that you can destroy karma through purification, penance and austerity. Hindu theologians teach that you achieve liberation from the round of rebirth through the realization that the individual soul is one with the Absolute or Ultimate Reality, called Brahman. Hindu texts advocate the practice of different “yogas” as ways to gain knowledge of union with Brahman. Hinduism teaches that surrender to God, the dissolution of bad karma, and the creation of good karma can help free the individual from the bondage of karma and rebirth.
