At one time, the Blessed One was staying at Sàvatthi, at Jetavana, and taught the monks: “Monks, there are these four types of people who exist and are present in the world. how is four? Guilty, many sins, few sins and no sins. What kind of people are guilty? There are, bhikkhus, a class of people who have accomplished bodily, verbal, and mental actions that are guilty of sin. Such is the category of sinners.
And what kind of people are guilty? There are, bhikkhus, a class of people who have accomplished bodily, verbal and mental karma with many sins. Such is the type of person with many sins. What is the class of people with little sin? There are, bhikkhus, a class of people who have accomplished bodily, verbal, and mental kamma, not guilty of many sins, but with few sins. So what kind of person has little sin. And what kind of person is not guilty? There are, bhikkhus, a class of people who have accomplished bodily, verbal and mental karma without sin. Such is the class of people who are not guilty.There are four classes of these people, the Male-stilts, existing, present in the world.

Sin is one of the basic attributes of living beings. When people are present in the world, sin is present. Even in the past, before being born, sin or karma played a dominant role, the main factor to shape the shape, character, and situation of each individual in the present. Therefore, humans are the inheritance of sin, their own karma, and therefore, it is normal for people living in this world to be guilty.
Before becoming saints, everyone is the same in that they are all guilty. Is there a difference in the level of karma, more or less sin, in this respect or that. Sins, according to the wisdom of the Blessed One, are unwholesome acts created in the deeds, words and thoughts of people.
Although we accept sin because the three karmas are not pure, the sin must be small and small and the most important thing is to know it yourself. While still in the status of sentient beings, knowing clearly the limitations, bad habits of oneself in order to strive, rise, eliminate evil, reach perfection is paramount. Humans are making more and more sins, partly because they do not recognize evil or consider the evils that exist in the majority as normal, even many people are complacent with achievements based on their achievements. on the basis of greed.
More than anyone else, a child of Buddha needs to return to himself, know all his actions in order to control, step by step master, and transform the three bad karmas of body, speech, and mind. Achieving perfection, guilt-free is a long road. The basic foundation of that path is wisdom, knowing that you are guilty, so you must first try not to create more sins and at the same time develop meditation to see that all sins come from the mind, the pure mind. ie three pure karma.
