Impurities Are Many; Purity Should Be Maintained!


Impurities are many; among these,
…along with the two activities of passing motion and urine,

Having sex with companion
…and the act of kissing by mouth

Are the four impurities that have to be
…safeguarded; purity should be maintained!

    Hi,
    The Ancient Tamil Poet had said about natural sex and mouth to mouth kissing between the husband and wife only. He said the sexual parts and mouth should be kept clean and maintained cleanliness, talked about the clean habits! . (Report) Reply
