In one of the messages i received, it said, "When one abandons
prescribed karmas casually and does not care. . ."

In the process of devotional service, bhakti, there is no karma because
devotional service is not on any material platform, the three modes of
material nature-- mode of goodness, mode of passion, and mode of
ignorance.  Pious activites are karmic, but a Bhakta must be sinless.
The perscribed duties are there, and should be executed, but if done
with pure devotion to the Lord, these activites are not karmic.

Please explain to me any inconsistancies.

Your servant,
