Poems on Sin


Forgiveness of seeming sins
Is good.

Illumination of teeming sins
Is better.

Not to resort at any time to sin
Is by far the best.

Sri Chinmoy (1)

A life of sin
Can never win.
The sins, while drinking,
Eat the dreams, while sinking.

Sri Chinmoy (2)

My Lord,
Quite often I speak ill of You;
Quite often I find fault with You.
I am sure these are
My unforgivable sins.
“My child,
They are not unforgivable;
They are easily forgivable.
But unfortunately you have committed
An unforgivable sin,
And that sin is
That you have totally given up
The idea of realising Me.”

Sri Chinmoy (3)
