A sin committed does not, like a cow, bear fruit soon; one sees it sons and grandsons, it not in oneself; a sin necessarily bears consequences like a heavy (indigestible) meal in the belly –Mahabharata 1-75-2
naa dharmas carito raajan sadyah phalati gaur iva
putresu vaa naptrsu vaa n aced aatmani pasyati
phalaty eva dhruvam paapam gurubhuktam ivo dare
Tamil Veda Tirukkural on Sin
There may be forgiveness for any sin but not for ingratitude (Tirukkural 110)
For those who harmed the cows, who did abortions, who harmed Brahmins, there is atonement; but for those who have been ungrateful, there is no atonement- Alathur Kizar in Purnanauru verse 34
Harming Brahmins is a sin: Puram34, 43
Deeds forbidden by the wise – who dare to do them? –even if they succeed, suffer grief and troubles (Tirukkural 658)
Though he sees his mother starving, let him not do those actions which are condemned by the wise (Tirukkural 656)
Never do a wrong for which you repent afterwards. Once done repeat it not (Tirukkural 655)
All profits, that make others weep, depart with tears. Even if lost, blessings flow from good deeds(Tirukkural 659)
Even in adversity, men gifted with an unfaltering vision, never do actions that are disgraceful (Tirukkural 654)

Manu on Sins
Five Great Sins/ Pancha mahaapaataka
Killing of Brahmana- Brahmahatya
Consuming liquor- suraapaanam
Misbehaving with teacher’s wife- Gurvanga naagamah
Having association with the above – Samsargi
Brahmahatyaa suraapaanamsteyam gurvanganaagamah
Mahanti paatakaanyaahustasamsargi cha panchamah
–Manu smrti 11-54
If one mainly practises virtue [punya] and to a lesser extent vice [påpa], one obtains bliss in a heavenly realm, clothed with those very elements. 12:20.
But if one primarily practices vice and less virtue, one suffers, deserted by the elements, the torments inflicted by Yama. Having endured those torments of Yama, one again enters, free from taint, those very five elements, each in due proportion. 12:21-22.
He who has committed an offence and has repented, is freed from that offence, but he is purified only by [the resolution of] ceasing [to sin and thinking] ‘I will do so no more.’11:231.
He who, having either unintentionally or intentionally committed a reprehensible deed, desires to be freed from [the blame of it, must not commit it a second time. 11:233.
Having thus considered in his mind what results will arise from his deeds after death, one should always be good in thoughts, speech, and actions. 11:232.
The penances for transgressions [made public] have been thus declared according to the law; learn next the penances for secret [transgressions]. 11:248.
Sixteen suppressions of the breath [Prå±åyama] accompanied by [the recitation of] the Vyåhritis and of the syllable Om, purify, if they are repeated daily, after a month even the murderer of a learned priest. 11:249.
Even a drinker of [the spirituous liquor called] Sura becomes pure, if he mutters the hymn [seen] by Kutsa, ‘Removing by thy splendour our guilt, O Agni,’ &c., [that seen] by Vasishtha, ‘With their hymns the Vasishthas woke the Dawn,’ &c., the Mahitra [hymn] and [the verses called] Suddhavatis. 11:250.
Even he who has stolen gold, instantly becomes free from guilt, if he once mutters [the hymn beginning with the words] ‘The middlemost brother of this beautiful, ancient Hotri-priest’ and the Sivasaºkalpa sûkta. 11:251.
But if one fasts for three days, bathing thrice a day, and reciting [while standing in water] the Aghamarshana sûkta (Rig Veda10-190), is [likewise] freed from all offences causing loss of caste. 11:260. 5

Sin in Bhagavad Gita
What pleasure can be ours, O Krishna, after we have slain the sons of Dhritarashtra? Only SIN will accrue to us if we kill these malignant.
Alas, what a great SIN have resolved to commit in striving to slay our own people through our greed for the pleasures of the kingdom.1-36, 45
But if thou doest not this lawful battle, then thou wilt fail thy duty and glory and will incur SIN.
Treating alike pleasure and pain,gain and loss, victory and defeat, then get ready for battle. Thus thou shall not incur SIN. 2-33, 38
But by what is a man impelled to commit sin, as if by force, even against his will, O Krishna? 3-36
The All pervading Spirit does not take on the SIN or the merit of any. Wisdom is enveloped by ignorance; thereby creatures are bewildered. 5-15
But those men of virtuous deeds in whom SIN has come to an end, freed from the delusion of dulaities, worship Me steadfast in their vows. 7-28
The gateway of this hell leading to the ruin of the soul is threefold, lust, anger and greed. Therefore, these three one should abandon 16-21
Man is never punished FOR his sins but BY his sins. To dissipate our energies through the sense organs is the vulgar hobby of the thoughtless mortal.
