How to get rid of negative karma? How does it come into existence?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

I want to ask you a question. When the lights were not on in this room, there was darkness here, right? When the lights came on, where did the darkness go? Did it go to that room? Did the darkness escape through the window? Got it?
In the same way, if negative karma is there, there is little darkness, there is no light there. Put the light on, it vanishes.
How to get rid of negative karma? By meditation, service and knowledge. Serve the needy. Know that it (the negative karma) does not touch you; a shadow does not touch me.
