देहवाग्बुद्धिजं धीरा धर्मज्ञाः श्रद्धयान्विताः ।
क्षिपंत्यघं महदपि वेणुगुल्ममिवानलः ॥

It is natural that man commits sins by his action - of body, speech and intellect. But there are a few people who are courageous, know Dharma and have faith who can live their life so well that they destroy all those sins - as easily as fire destroys a cluster of bamboo shoots.
