Upadhyay Shri Yashovijayji

Upadhyay Shri Yashovijayji
If someone utters the word upadhyayji it would mean Shrimad Yashovijayji Upadhyay. ‘So says Upadhyayji’ is regarded as the final word and ultimate authority in scriptural matters. His contemporary monks regarded him as the sarvajna (omniscient) in matters of the scriptures and also as shrutkevali (scripture – omniscient). Author of more than 100 books in Sanskrit, Prakrut and Gujarati, he also earned the titles of Tattvavisharad and Kurchatsharda. Besides writing the books that were theoretical and academic, he composed poems that were immensely popular. As Shri Bhadrabahuswami was known as antim shrutkevali so also Upadhyayji can be regarded as antim shrutpargami (last knower of all Jain canonical scriptures). Since his time, there has been no other scholar as learned and competent as him. Continue reading “Upadhyay Shri Yashovijayji” »

Puniya Shravak

Puniya Shravak
Puniya Shravak symbolized ideal worship and devotion. He was a devotee whose devotion was praised by Bhagwan Mahavir himself. A resident of Rajagriha he came under the spell of Mahavir’s discourses and began to practice aparigraha (abandonment of worldly possessions). He embraced poverty willingly and gave away all the wealth he had inherited from his father. He would be happy and contented with what he earned from making cotton threads. He believed that contentment had nothing to do with possessions, with wealth or acquisitiveness. It is simply a state of mind. Continue reading “Puniya Shravak” »

वुच्चमाणो न संजले

Even if someone were to abuse an aspirant, he should not get angry.

Knowingly, unknowingly man makes mistakes. We do not know our own mistakes; therefore, we need ‘gurudeva’in our life. Because of their kindness, with a purpose of reforming us, they tell us our mistakes. Continue reading “Do not get angry” »
