Mahatma Gandhi on Confession and repentance

Confession of errors is like a broom that sweeps away the dirt and leaves the surface cleaner than before.
A clean confession, combined with a promise never to commit sin again, when offered before one who has the right to receive it, is the purest type of repentance.
The moment we repent and ask God for forgiveness for our lapse, we are purged of our sin and new life begins for us. True repentance is an essential prerequisite of prayer.
