Certain deeds are not considered as a healthy practice!
One should not touch and use the oil
…already smeared over the hair in his head
for the other parts of the body!
One should not touch
…and use the dirty dress
worn by others!
One should not accept and wear
…the footwear used by others,
even if it is politely requested!
(It is not a healthy practice to use the same oil
put to the hair in the head to other parts of the body,
use the dirty dress worn by others
and wear the footwear used by others)
