— books Sri Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya / Glossary

papa sin; inauspicious karma; actions that produce suffering. Such actions may be divided into the following categories: (1) violence, (2) cruelty, (3) duplicity, (4) madness, (5) falsity, (6) disobeying superiors, (7) covetousness, (8) selfishness, (9) impurity, (10) uncivil behaviour, and (11) destructive behaviour. The consequences of such actions are also called papa and exist in three forms: aprarabdha, inactive, prarabdha, active, and bija, seed. Inactive sin refers to sin that will take effect in future births, active sin refers to sin that will effect in this birth, and the seed form of sin refers to the desire to commit sin. Devotion can destroy all three forms of papa, as well as their root cause, avidya, ignorance, misunderstanding of the self.

«Devotees should know for certain that non-grain prasad is the only supplement acceptable on Ekadasi. Non-devotees enjoy day and night using prasad as an excuse. Lightheartedly, they eat grains in which the personification of sin is present and disregard the rite for the day of the Lord.

Papa-purus lit. ‘personification of sin’; the Padma-purana (7.22.1–52) explains that the Lord gave the Papa-purus the special dispensation to take shelter in grains on the day of Ekadasi, and thus anyone who consumes grains on Ekadasi becomes implicated in the sum total of all sins. While the true purpose of observing Ekadasi is endeavouring to satisfy the Lord without any selfish motivation of being freed from sin, it is also Sriman Mahaprabhu’s order that everyone fast from grains on Ekadasi and avoid contact with the Papa-purus.

prayaschitta atonement for sin; the numerous penances prescribed in the scriptures — such as fasting, begging, and performing unusual austerities — to absolve oneself of sins. Such acts can remove the inauspicious karma that is produced by committing sin, but they cannot remove the desire or susceptibility to commit sin in the future, and they cannot absolve the soul of offences against the Lord’s Name or His devotees.

«You do not need to make any atonement: all the scriptures say that initiation alone destroys all sins.


«When you sincerely take shelter of the Lord, all your offences are destroyed, you never again have any taste for sin and suffering, your piety and sins disappear, and you conquer the illusory environment.
