How does the illuminate react to his own karma? "Even after knowledge of the self has been awakened, Prarabdha (the portion of past karma now being enjoyed) does not leave him but he does not feel Prarabdha after the dawning of the knowledge of the truth because the body and other things are unreal like the things seen in a dream to one on awakening from it," replies Nadabindu Upanishad. That is, he treats his karmic suffering as being but ideas.
