Transfer of Sins?
I attended a religious discourse yesterday. One thing that I heard
somewhat surprised me...so here is a question.
In Hindu context, does there exist a concept of Transfer of Sin?
i.e., can a Guru in blessing his/her disciples take away his/her sins
For example, if a disciple is sick or has a disease,
can a Guru acquire his/her sickness or disease upon himself/herself?
In other words, can be "bad" karmas be transferred from one person
to another? Can "good" karmas be given to others?
I know that blessing can be given....
Also, I do know that in Christianity, it is believed that Christ
died for the Sins of mankind. But does this concept exist in Hindu dharma?
I am looking for scriptural evidence, and examples from ancient Bharatiya
history and not contemporary evidences.
