Speak not if doubtful

Speak not if doubtful

जत्थ संका भवे तं तु,
एवमेयं ति नो वए

If you are doubtful on any subject then do not say ‘this is this only’

Pure, free and forbearing

Pure, free and forbearing

सारदसलिलं इव सुद्धहियया,
विहग इव विप्पमुक्का,
वसुंधरा इव सव्वफासविसहा

Hearts of Sadhus are as pure as the water of a river in autumn. Like the bird, they are free of bondage and like the earth, they endure all pleasures and pain with equanimity

During rainy days, the color of the water of the river, which looks like the color of tea or coffee because of mud mixing, becomes pure in autumn. Sadhus hearts are also pure like that. They are without the dirt of passions. Continue reading “Pure, free and forbearing” »

Continuation of Lord Rishabhdev’s life as a Sadhu

Continuation of Lord Rishabhdevs life as a Sadhu
Kaccha, Mahakaccha, and the other royal ascetics, dwelling in the forest on the right bank of the Gangas like deer; wearing barkgarments like living trees; not touching householders’ food like something that had been vomited; their bodies very thin like empty skins, the elements dried up by fasts of two, three, or more days; even on the day for breaking fast eating dried leaves, dried fruit, etc., continued to think in their hearts only of the Blessed One, and did not go to another. The Blessed One, after wandering in silence among the Aryas and non-Aryas for a year without food, reflected as follows: “Just as lamps exist on oil, as trees on water, so on food alone the bodies of living creatures exist.
