    Re: are we too doing SIN ?

    This question was raised on me also
    and I got the answer as follow:

    Definitely there is sin in that also, but the amount of sin is very very less when comparing to that of
    killing animals.
    As per the aim of shastras (mind - not as per shastras),
    the life of a jeevan should not be taken (by killing) before its normal life span.
    So, the normal life span of plants are very less hence the amount of sin also less.

    And hence shastras are insisting Brahmins to do Sandhya Vandhanam thrice a day as prayachittam
    for all such sins on a day.

    Also, Killing of animals by a Brahmin is very high while comparing with human other than brahmin.
