Sins to be avoided

Sins to be avoided
Srivathsa Somadeva Sharma
Translated by
Every religion believes that  we should not do sins  and if we do it God would punish us.  Ofcourse  the list of sins and the punishment that we would get  differs slightly from religion to religion.  Hinduism believes  that every one should desist  from doing sins. This list of  sins is  collected  and given by a great Scholar  called  Srivathsa Somadeva Sarma. This material is the English translation of the information that he has given in a book called  “Stotra ChinthamanI”  published in Tamil by  Sri Surabhi Jagatguru Publications , Madras in the year 1998.Most of these sins are normal acts  which we should do to a health life.  Even if you do not believe in them, Why not try not  to do them and see for yourself whether they are true or not?
