Here is a refreshing quote from (Swami) Vivekananda:

'The Vedanta recognizes no sin it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.'

It is refereshing because it doesn't say the coarse 'if u are a good boy, u will go to heaven; if u are a bad boy, u will go to hell.' which most religious teachings (including many in the Hindu tradition) teach/lecture on.

It is refereshing because his thoughts treat each individual like a higher being capable of thought - it doesn't denigrate human beings to being things running to do good for selfish motives related to the after-life.
