Do not get stuck in the mire

Do not get stuck in the mire

महयं पलिगोव जाणिया, जा वि य वंदणपूयणा इहं

The Lord’s Kevala
Independent, unstumbling like the wind, practicing various and manifold penances, persevering in manifold vows, the Blessed One wandered for a thousand years as easily as a day in Mleccha countries Yavana, Domba, etc., observing silence, making non- Aryas well-disposed to others just from the sight of him, untouched by disturbances, enduring trials. The Blessed One, Vrsabhabannered, went to Purimatala, the chief suburb of the great city Ayodhya. Continue reading “The Lord’s Kevala” »
