Verse 7.209.9

प्रतिभैव विनेयस्य क्षेत्रपुण्येन तादृशी ।
तथैवोदेति सा धातुर्विपरीतवतो यथा ॥ ९ ॥

pratibhaiva vineyasya kṣetrapuṇyena tādṛśī |
tathaivodeti sā dhāturviparītavato yathā || 9 ||

The reflection of purity acquired in some holy place, appears to the penitent soul in the same manner; as it appears in its contrary light to the guilty soul, which is not so absolved from its sin in any holy place.
