Hindus/Karma

Question
QUESTION: Hi Sir,
would doing something wrong due to ignorance create a negative karma?
For example a person might think something as correct upto his own intellect and he does it. Is it wrong, when his intellect is only at that level?  

Please clear my doubt...

Regards,
Vimal.

ANSWER: Dear Vimal,

In my opinion, it does create negative karma, one does not go scot-free, but the severity of negative karma is reduced. Regards,

Yours sincerely,

So, is it our mistake to be ignorant?

-So Aham

Answer
Dear Vimal,

I think that is our biggest mistake. Life tells us so many things. Then there is education. We should learn. Why, otherwise, humans have a brain. We would use it. One cannot hide behind the wall of ignorance. Regards,

Yours sincerely,

Aupmanyav
