Do not speak in between

Do not speak in between

राइणियस्स भासमाणस्स वा
वियागरेमाणस्स वा नो अन्तरा भासं भासिज्ज

When elders (gurus) are speaking, preaching, then we should not speak in between

Virtue only is a real gem, not the shining stones. For those who are more qualified than us, ‘ratna’ (gem) word is used in the scriptures. When gurus who are more qualified are speaking, discussing or preaching then it is the duty of a humble disciple that he does not speak in-between. Continue reading “Do not speak in between” »

Experience of Detachment

Experience of Detachment

तण्हा हया जस्स न होइ लोहो,
लोहो हओ जस्स न किंचणाइ

One who is not greedy, his desires are eliminated and he who is desireless, his greed is eliminated

Kincana means something. The one, who understands that in this world, there is nothing that belongs to him, who thinks that when he takes birth, he never brings anything with him and after the death, nothing will go with him – all the wealth, land, home etc., will be left behind. One who knows that barring the soul every thing is perishable, momentary, one who is attached to nothing is called Akincana. Continue reading “Experience of Detachment” »

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” »
