Lord Krishna (His Lilas and Teachings) -Swami Sivananda
The Three Paths: Karma, Bhakti And Jnana
If the Yogi does some reproachable and improper act inadvertently, he should burn the sin by Yoga alone but not by any other means i.e., not by expiatory rites. [Japa of Mantra or taking Lord’s name, meditation on the Lord or Brahman, Kirtan, Brahma Chintan or Brahma Vichara will burn the sin of impurity.]
Adherence to the duties of one’s own sphere is said to be virtue (right). By making this distinction between merit and defect a restriction is placed on acts that are by nature impure for the purpose of enabling people to remove attachment to them.
