     Dear Sri Badri,
     
     When we surrender to Him, it is not just saying, I am falling at your 
     feet, please save me. Here we have to do a lot of tyAgams viz., 
     kartrutva tyAgam, mamata tyAgam and phala tyAgam. The first one is 
     that we should not think that doing saraNAgati is our karma and hence 
     we do it, the second one is that we should not think that we are doing 
     do it. It is only emberumAn who is making us do it. The third one is 
     that we should not think that the fruit of the saraNAgati is for us to 
     enjoy. This is what Sri KrishnA said in Bhagavadh Gita " Sarva dharmAn 
     parityagya". The dharmam here refers to these attributes.
     
     Now our AzhwArs and AchAryAs have brilliantly explained the answer to 
     your question as to how our earlier misdeeds are gotten rid off when 
     we do saraNAgati.
     
     1. Sri Poigai AzhwAr's pAsuram " KunRanaya kuRRam seiyyinum guNam 
     koLLum, inRu mudhalAga en nenjE..". Here he says that after  doing 
     saraNAgati to emberuman with utmost sincerety realising the sEshatva 
     nature of our swaroopam, emberumAn treats all our sins ( accumulated 
     as tall as a mountain) as bhOgyam for Him.

Hello ,
A person enjoys in this world the result of Karma 
accmulated in the previous birth.He goes through 
sufferings in this life due to the bad karma 
accumulated in the preious birth.Does it mean that 
whatever happens in this life is due to the karma 
accumulated in the previous one.Then how does 
surrendering himself to te almighty help him to get 
rid of his suffering that he is destined to go through 
due to his bad karma
Srinivasa Dasan
Badri
