God create everything and exist within everything. All breathing is the breath of God, but people are not aware of this. They are so engrossed in the body and the material world that they are the body, not the soul. They forget that they are the living power of God, the image of God. this is sin. Just a dirt is cleansed away by water and detergent, sins are cleansed by the virtuous deed : punya karma.
Devotion and determination are two legs used to walk on the path of spirituality. Meditation and maintaining the effects of meditation during daily life is essential.
