THE EIGHTEEN SINFUL ACTIVITIES
In our life we come across the following eighteen sinful activities: to hurt or kill living beings, to lie, to steal, unchastity, worldly possessiveness, anger, pride, deception, greed, craving, aversion, quarrelling, allegation, gossiping, criticism, being happy in sinful acts, being unhappy in religious acts, to lie maliciously, to trust wrong God, Guru or religion. If I have committed any of above eighteen sinful acts, personally, asked someone else to do for me, or encouraged others to do so, then in the presence of infinite Siddhas and Kevalis, I ask for forgiveness. May all my such sins be dissolved. TASSA MICHCHHAMI DUKKADAM.
