These may be called sins although I'm not aware of any such calling,
but these are certainly not the highest. The highest sins are said to
be (a) killing of a cow; (b) killing of a braahmaNa; (c) intercourse
with a preceptor's wife; (d) intercourse with a female blood-relative,
etc. I believe there are two more, but I'm confused about what they
are. If someone can remember the exact reference, perhaps they can
clarify.
