The Mahatma would examine the karma, and choose from those
actions/inactions that would create no personal karma, choosing the one
s/he believes will further the evolution of humanity the most.
Of course, most of us are not gifted with the ability to perceive
karma. So what we have to do is TRY. Try to, as dispassionately as
possible, determine which action or inaction would further the evolution
of the human race the most, based on your
interpretation/belief/disbelief of the primary literature and those that
have come before and afterwards, and act accordingly.
