Hindu scriptures have talked three types of rin (debts): Dev rin, Pitra rin and Rishi rin.God or the devtas gave us the consciousness, parents gave us our body and teachers gave us the knowledge or intellect.In Vedic language, our body is a mix of mind, body and soul which can be equated to three rins of mind (teachers), body (parents) and soul (Rishi & Gods). In computer language, this can be equated to operational software (God), application software (teachers) and computer hardware (parents).
