  1. For an accurate answer, you must first indicate what “sin”is
    As far as I understand sin in theistic religions, it is a violation of G-d's will.
    A variety of prohibitions can be imposed by the creator, sometimes even incomprehensible. For example, a ban on the use of certain products or performing certain actions.

    In this version, there is no concept of sin in Buddhism, because there is no idea of G-d the creator and, accordingly, the idea of violating his will.

    If by the word “sin” we mean any unwholesome actions, then there is such a concept of sin in Buddhism. These are akusala kamma – kammically unskillful actions or papA-vicious (sinful) actions.
    Unlike the concept of sin as a violation of G-d's will, akusala Kamma is based on the golden rule of morality: “don't do anything to others that you don't want to do to yourself.” Unwholesome deeds have their fruit in suffering, which will overtake the one who does such deeds in the future.

    In all branches of Buddhism the standard akusala kamma list is considered including:

    At the body level:

    1. Killingto
    2. Theft
    3. Inappropriate sexual behavior

    At the speech level:

    1. Lie
    2. Slander (and gossip)
    3. Rude language (and swearing)
    4. Verbiage

    At the level of the mind:

    1. Greed
    2. Malevolence
      10.False views

    You can also talk about a wider range of negative actions. For example, drinking alcohol, gambling, being rude, being disrespectful – these will all be papa-vicious acts.

  2. The concept of sin stands for “missing an opportunity”, and in the same way there are phenomena in Buddhism that prevent you from getting nirvana. Here is such a turn

  3. There is no concept of sin in Buddhism. There are things that interfere with the achievement of nirvana. And then there's karma, which is about the cause-and-effect relationship: if you do something bad, it will also come back to you with something nasty, and if you do it well, it will also be good for you
