अथ सर्वे वयं दीर्घकालं श्वपचदूषिताः ।
प्रायश्चित्तैर्न शुद्ध्यामः प्रविशामो हुताशनम् ॥ ३० ॥

atha sarve vayaṃ dīrghakālaṃ śvapacadūṣitāḥ |
prāyaścittairna śuddhyāmaḥ praviśāmo hutāśanam || 30 ||

They all said to one another, that the guilt of their long association with the Chandala, cannot be expiated by any other penance, than by the act of burning themselves alive on the funeral pile in the form of self-immolation.
