As per my knowledge no one can pay for any one's Karma you yourself are responsible.

Aape Beej Aape He Khahu You yourself plant and yourself eat the fruit

You are a stream of water, Guru is the river and God is the Sea.

A stream cannot merge into sea without going through the River. There is no Christianity like concept of "Jesus died for our sins" here

and these lines mean

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਵੇਲਾ ਸਚੁ ਨਾਉ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥ amrit (First Pehr) vaylaa (time) sach(true) naa-o(name) vadi-aa-ee(praise) veechaar (thoughts).

At Amrit Vela (First Pehr 3 - 6 am) Utter the true name (God) and Think about his praises

ਕਰਮੀ ਆਵੈ ਕਪੜਾ ਨਦਰੀ ਮੋਖੁ ਦੁਆਰੁ ॥ karmee(Karma) aavai (comes) kaprhaa (cloth) nadree (blissful glance) mokh(liberation) du-aar (court of Lord).

Karma is the cloth one's soul wears in the court of Lord where he is judged (One's with filthy cloth are turned away on ones with clean white, God gives his blissful glance).

The way the karmas are covered by Guru Kirpaa is that Guru Ji guides us to the shortest path through it so that our karmas are paid quickly.

Perhaps some else remembers which video it was since there are a couple of hundred and I certainly don't remember. Perhaps it was this one Karma and Dharma in Your Life in which i talked about this tuk from Japji Sahib:

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਵੇਲਾ ਸਚੁ ਨਾਉ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥ amrit vaylaa sach naa-o vadi-aa-ee veechaar. ਕਰਮੀ ਆਵੈ ਕਪੜਾ ਨਦਰੀ ਮੋਖੁ ਦੁਆਰੁ ॥ karmee aavai kaprhaa nadree mokh du-aar.

That said, karmas can be covered by Guru kirpaa. Over this we have no control.
