Chitrak and Sambhuti were born to a butcher

Chitrak and Sambhuti were born to a butcher
Once, a muni was passing through the forest. In the afternoon, he lost his way and fell unconscious. Four cow-herds, grazing their cows over there, saw this from a distance. They came near him and found that his lips were dry. They assumed him to be thirsty and extracted milk from a cow and poured into his mouth. The muni attained consciousness. He preached them that, “Our soul is wandering in the forest of this world. Asceticism is the only way to free ourselves from pains.” All of them gained faith and accepted monkhood and two of them achieved omniscience and salvation.

Self-criticism is a must for all

Self criticism is a must for all

जह सुकुसलो वि विज्जो अन्नस्स
कहेइ अत्तणो वाहि|
एवं जाणगस्स वि सल्लुद्धरणं परसगासे॥
A skillful doctor also discloses his disease to another doctor, likewise the guru who knows the atonement should also confess before his seniors. Thus preceptors, saints, followers of Jainism, all should observe self-criticism. One cannot be pious without self-criticism. The harm of not making self-criticising :– Those sufferings which do not occur due to poison or weapons or arrows, are caused by deceitful afflictions hidden inside the heart. By hiding the sins Rukmani had to take birth for 1,00,000 times on this earth. Poison kills only once but due to the hidden sins, one has to face death thousands of times. It is said in the scriptures. Continue reading “Self-criticism is a must for all” »
