Ignorant are conceited

Ignorant are conceited

बालजणो पगभई

Ignorant are conceited

Education should impart humility. Without humility, there will not be any progress in education and what has been acquired would be lost slowly. Continue reading “Ignorant are conceited” »

Will not repeat the mistake

Will not repeat the mistake

तं परिण्णाय मेहावी, इयाणिं णो,
जमहं पुव्वमकासो पमाएणं

A bright aspirant, through self-realization, should resolve not to repeat the mistakes committed due to un-vigilance in the past life

It is said that man learns by stumbling only. Every fall teaches him something or other, makes him learn; but to take lessons or not from failures depend on his wish. One, who is endowed with intelligence and is wise, growth and living with such desires are possible in him. Continue reading “Will not repeat the mistake” »

Be equipoise

Be equipoise

जहा पुण्णस्स कत्थई, तहा तुच्छस्स कत्थई|
जहा तुच्छस्स कत्थई, तहा पुण्णस्स कत्थई|

As is told to the virtuous, so is told to man of vice and as is told to the vice man so is told to the virtuous

Unattached preacher preaches the rich man in the same way as he preaches a poor man; and he preaches the poor in the same way as he preaches a rich man. It means that in his attitude there is no difference in between a rich and a poor man. He preaches all in the same way. Continue reading “Be equipoise” »

Simplicity and contentment

Simplicity and contentment

माया मज्जवभावेणं,
लोहं सन्तोसओ जिणे

Win deceit with simplicity and greed with contentment

Simplicity and evil are opposite words. People have unshakable faith on a simple person and total disbelief on the crooked. Where there is trust, love is there only; and where there is love, only there is happiness. Continue reading “Simplicity and contentment” »

Viṣayakī kaisē kaṭē mōrī cāha

Listen to Viṣayakī kaisē kaṭē mōrī cāha

Old oxen

Old oxen

तत्थ मंदा विसीयंति, उज्जाणंसि जरग्गवा

Like an old oxen on the climh, ignorant men get irritated on the path of realization

Lot of patience is required to walk on the path of realization. Difficulties, worries, and hindrances come on their path. Wise aspirants believe that all the troubles arise to test their patience. That is why, to win over them enough enthusiasm is aroused in them. Continue reading “Old oxen” »

How should the speech be ?

How should the speech be ?

भासियव्वं हियं सच्चं

Benevolent and true must be spoken

Whatever we speak should be for the good of self and others. If it does not happen this way, then we should think that our speech had been wasted. If the students, who have not learnt their lesson are beaten in the class, then on any other day, when they have not learnt their lesson, they think – ‘Never mind, guruji will slap only. We will bear that.’ This way beating will result in their becoming impudent and inclination to learn their lessons would not rise. Instead of this, if they are lovingly made to understand the harm accrued in not learning their lessons daily, they can be encouraged to memorize their lessons regularly.

Attainment of Disgust with Existence

Attainment of Disgust with Existence
While the citizens were playing there in this way, the Master thought, “Is there such sport anywhere else?” Then by clairvoyant knowledge the Master knew the very highest pleasure of heaven and that pleasure of Anuttara-heaven formerly enjoyed by himself. His bonds of delusion dropping away, again he reflected thus: “Alas! these people, overcome by sense-objects, do not know their own good. Ah! in this well of samsara, jivas from their karma perform actions that are nothing more than coming and going like a jar on a water-wheel. Alas! alas! for creatures whose minds are blinded by delusion this birth always passes in vain like the night for those asleep. Continue reading “Attainment of Disgust with Existence” »
