06. Char Joog No Chanto

(Seeking forgiveness for sins from past lives)

While our life on earth is limited, our soul is eternal. Our soul has passed through many physical forms in the last four ages (Char Joog) in its quest for salvation. The fact that it has not attained salvation yet is due to the burden of sins (Karma) that it is still carrying from past lives. Some of these sins can be such that they may be hampering our current efforts for spiritual progress. This Chanta is taken to seek forgiveness to lighten this burden. It is also a reminder for us that what we are today is a result of many past lives and what we become in the next life will depend a lot on what we do now.
