There are ten faults of mind, ten faults of speech, and twelve faults of body which one may commit during Smyika. Whatever faults I may have committed, I beg forgiveness for them. The instincts of eating, fear, pleasure, and possessiveness should be avoided during Smyika. If I had any of the four instincts during Smyika, I beg forgiveness for them. I took the vow of Smyika in a proper manner and I completed it as prescribed. Nevertheless, if any impropriety was done, I beg for forgiveness.
