Krishna responded to Sam Rengi's question by saying
that Lord Vishnu is exempt from karma in his avataarams.
I find that hard to believe simply because in Rama and
Krishna avataaram He is mortal (technically). In a specific case killing
Vali in Rama avataaram is not considered
pavam nor karma?  I was told that it was considered as karma,
and that in the Krishna avataaramthe Lord gives Vali an
opportunity to kill the mortal Krishna.  Isn't karma the
basis for this incidence?  Or did I miss the point? Neeraj
