I am copying here excerpts from some posts by a devotee of Sri Ramana

Quote  << How a Brahma Jnani balances his good karmas and bad karmas,
and leave a zero balance, is given in Guru Vachaka Kovai, Verse
1138 of Muruganar.

Verse 1138:  Having extricated himself from kartrutva, the great one,
the mukta, abides in the service of God.  Know that his merits
[ that arise from his various actions] accrue to those who resort to him
and praise him with devotion; his sins [that accrue from sinful acts]
accrue to those who slander him instead of praising him. >> Unquote.

Another quote  << Bhagavan Ramana has also said this in one of His
and this has been recorded by G.V. Subbaramiah, in his Sri
Ramana Reminiscences. page 55,
1994 edition.

In the night [date of entry not available], Bhagavan Ramana said:
" Some hold the view that even the Jnani must experience prarabdha.
Then, the question arises, 'What about the fruits of his fresh actions
during that period of experience?'  They reply that those actions
are like fried seeds which are of use only for eating, but cannot
sprout.  Then what about their merits and sins?  Those who praise
them share their merits, those who blame them partake their sins,
it is said." >>  Unquote
