In Sikhi there is no such thing as sin. The word is Paap. Paap is usually translated as "sin," but that is a Christian concept that does not exist in Sikhi. Paap is Paa-Aap: you do it, you get it. Paa-Aap means an action done in ego, what you earn with your ego, not what comes to you by grace.

Paap is: you do it even though it takes you farther away from Oneness. Because you are not acting with consciousness. Because you are not applying universal consciousness. Because you are not applying any self learning and the words of the Guru, you are only doing what you are doing. Aap means acting by your own will and desires. Then you must face the result of that. That is called Paap. The opposite word of Paap is Punn. Punn, where you Paap, Na. You negate your self. Na, drop being controlled by your ego and you do what is generally in the general good. That is called Punn. And that is what Guru says. What brings pain is a Paap. And what brings you glory, that's a Punn.

Karma is simply the law that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. It's not bad or good. If you just be steady and work on yourself, Guru Ji will give you every opportunity to pay your outstanding karmas.

"Karn karaavan aape aap". He causes you to do things, everything happens according to his will. Whatever you have done is done in his will as well so do not feel that guilty about it. However, just do ardaas to god and if you feel ashamed of what you did, then simply ask for strength to not do that again. Things are hard in life, no one promised that it will be easy but we must push through. Sikhi isn't easy either but there are no superstitions in sikhi and no "pun or paap", just stay in god's hukam and take accountability for what you do. Keep trying and one day you will succeed. Bhul chuk muaf.
