practice makes it perfect

गोमूत्रमात्रेण पयो विनष्टं तक्रस्य गोमूत्र शतेन किम् वा।
अत्यल्पपापैर्विपदः शुचीनां पापात्मनां पापशतेन किं वा॥
gomūtramātreṇa payo vinaṣṭaṁ takrasya gomūtra śatena kim vā|
atyalpapāpairvipadaḥ śucīnāṁ pāpātmanāṁ pāpaśatena kiṁ vā||
ഗോമൂത്രമാത്രേന പയോ വിനഷ്ടം തക്രസ്യ ഗോമൂത്രശതെന കിം വാ
അത്യല്പപാപൈ: വിപദ: ശുചീനാം പാപാത്മനാം പാപശതെന കിം വാ
Even if a tiny drop of cow's urine is mixed with thousand litres of milk, the entire milk will be spoilt. But even if thousand litres of cow's urine is added to any quantity of buttermilk, nothing happens.  Similarly the noble persons would consider that all their accumulated virtues are lost if they happen to commit even some petty mistake. But for the persons who are doing evil things alone from the time of their birth  any additional evil deed would mean nothing.

In mahabharatham, during the war,, Yudhistira is persuaded to make an untruthful  statement regarding the death of ashwatthama and from that time onwards it is said that his chariot which always floated one feet above the ground level by virute of his dharma, landed on the earth for ever.  But we see liers and utter lier for whom telling a truth is a rare exception. Nothing  happens to them.

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
