    Hi and welcome. Can you try to ask this question another way? I can't understand what you're asking.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I'm sorry, but the sentence "no confused Kamma can be created" is not meaningful.

    I don't know what a Kamma is, and I don't know why one might be confused.

    I put the whole paragraph maybe it helps you help me !!
    The primary truth is the truth of no-I, no-self. If we realize it, suffering comes to an end, for without a self, desire, the root of all suffering, has no abode.
    Without a self, no confused Kamma can be created and so no retributive suffering can follow. One is free, nowhere attached, without the delusion of self.

    I'm sorry, but I still don't know what Kamma is.

    Can you help me understand that?

    Judging by the paragraph, I'd say it's the second meaning:

    "The Pali and Ardhamagadhi term for karma"

    I'm no buddhist but I'm guessing the meaning is that, if you recognize no self and therefore have no desires, only then you cannot create confused (bad) Karma and pay the consequences thereof.

    Sounds good to me. I never would have guessed that "confused Kamma" = "bad karma" from the original sentence.
