References from books
Sinful activities are called atipataka, mahapataka, anupataka, upapataka, jatibhramsakara, sankarikarana, apatrikarana, malavaha, and prakirnaka.
Caitanya Bhagavata Madhya-khanda 13.054
“Papa has three categories:
maha-pataka, very sinful; and
atipataka, extremely sinful.
Ref: Jaiva dharma
The four miserable conditions are due to the four kinds of sinful activities, known as
(1) pataka, preliminary sin
(2) urupataka, very great sin
(3) maha-pataka and greater sin
(4) atipataka and topmost sin.
Ref: Madhya 24.60
Srila Prabhupada has put all the above nine sins in a capsule (as administered by a qualified physician) and given to us in the form of 4 regulative principles and this covers all of the above sins. By following the regulative principles we automatically avoid all of the above 9 sinful activities with their derivatives.
No meat eating replaces daya (compassion/mercy) there is no room for quarrel when we are compassionate to souls as kali yuga is the the age of sinful activities Quarrel & Hypocrisy
No intoxication replaces is tapasya (Austerity)
No Illicit sex replaces saucham (Cleanliness)
No Gambling replaces satyam (truthfulness) there is no room for hipocrisy in truthfulness.
So we get to know that in kali yuga(age of Quarrel &hypocrisy) the only dharma that is alive (truthfulness)is been proted by saints sages and acharyas as their prime objective.
Fight Maya Avoid Kali - We will give some examples of urupataka
A sannyasi gives up his family and takes a vow to abstain from sex, but if he again takes to sex hecommits a very great sin.
So, Ajamila was victimized by illicit sex with a prostitute. There are many instances throughout the world in which even a purified person falls victim to attraction by a prostitute and spends all his money on her. Prostitute-hunting is so abominable that sex with a prostitute can ruin one’s character, destroy one’s exalted position, and plunder all one’s money. Therefore illicit sex is strictly prohibited. One should be satisfied with his married wife, for even a slight deviation will create havoc. A Krsna conscious grhastha should always remember this. He should always be satisfied with one wife and be peaceful simply by chanting the Hare Krsna mantra. Otherwise at any moment he may fall down from his good position, as exemplified by the case of Ajamila.
SC 13: Ajamila Begins His Degraded Life
Reactions of committing a very grate sin by srngi son of samika rishi is seen in our present condition of brahmans being cursed to be born as sudras and therefore gaudiya vaisnav sampradaya popagates even if a person is born in a low class family but chats the holy name he should be considered as a great soul.
Since Samika Rsi was an experienced, good brahmana, he did not approve of the actions of his condemned son. He began to lament for all that his son had done. The king was beyond the jurisdiction of curses as a general rule, and what to speak of a good king like Maharaja Pariksit. The offense of the King was most insignificant, and his being condemned to death was certainly a very great sin for Srngi. Therefore Rsi Samika regretted the whole incident.
The Samik Rishi as he was an experienced good Brahmin did not approve of the action of his condemned son. He began to lament therefore for all that his son had done. The king was beyond the jurisdiction of being cursed as a general rule and what to speak of a good king like Maharaj Parikshit. The offence of the king was most insignificant and he was condemned to death was certainly a very great sin on the part of the son of a Brahmin and therefore the Rishi Samik regretted the whole incidence
In the below pastime we get to see that misleading a soul is a very grate sin so from the above you can understand the reactions of the sins of this kind and nature
Rama paused and gradually His anger subsided. After some minutes He spoke again. “My father was wedded to truth. Following his instruction will lead only to happiness. I shall therefore remain in these woods and Bharata should rule the earth. This will be Our only assurance of happiness, both in this world and the next. O Jabali, you should not speak in this way again, for to mislead the people is a very great sin.”
RKD: 2.5: Rama Remains Firm
If the reaction of a very grate sin is a full kalpa then one can imagine the reactions of topmost sin
and how important it is to be vigilant and avoid committing such sins.(Fight maya & avoid Kali)
Therefore satras say
ei rupe bhramanda bhramite kono bhagyavan jiva
guru-krsna krpaya paya bhakti-lata-bija
[Cc. Madhya 19.151]
We are wandering all over the universe. When you are doing some pious activities, you are elevated to the higher planetary system, urdhvam gacchanti sattva-stha [Bg. 14.18]. When we are not very much pious, but not impious also — ordinary, following moral principles — then madhye tisthanti rajasah. And jaghanya-guna-vrtti-stha adho gacchanti tamasah. So in this way, up and down, we are wandering by transmigration of the soul. This is our position.
Bhagavad-gita 9.2 — Calcutta, March 8, 1972
Lord Caitanya says. We are wandering throughout the whole universe. That we do not know. We think that after finishing this body, everything is finished. But that is not the fact. Otherwise, why there are so many varieties of life? The varieties of life are because there are varieties of sinful activities. Because there are varieties of sinful activity, therefore we have got varieties of karma. Otherwise, if there would have been one class of activity, why there are different varieties of body? This is common sense
