Dear Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains, plz take four minutes and read this important thread.

One of the many, many Adharmas out there that the Dharmic must avoid to reach the goal of one world under Dharma, is liberalism ie embracing new ideas blindly. 👇
I'm not completely against embracing new ideas. However, if embracing a new idea doesn't serve Dharma or its community ultimately, or in a worse case scenario, if that hurts Dharma and its community, then such an idea should be discarded.

Ex : interfaith romance and marriage. 👇

They are Jains.
Yes the forgotten and neglected jains of our society.
Sarak 🙌
This video is from orrisa .
Where our jain brothers are teaching them about jainism and reintroducing them with religious beliefs.
They don't eat nonveg or kand mool ,if u ask them why
Thread Cont.
Why they don't eat .
They say they don't know why but their ancestors also never ate it so even they don't.
Many sarak jains don't even use words like kaatna (cut) maarna etc.
These are the strong religious sentiments which r deeply coded into them
which is making them follow it
Their gotra is from the name of tirthankars,
parshwnath , dharmnath n etc.
In a way they from the same lineage of the tirthankars.
But with time they are all left behind totally neglected by Jain samaj..

6. उत्तम संयम धर्म / Uttam Sanyam Dharm

A horse without a rein and a vehicle without a break cannot reach the final destination.

Similarly, a mind without self-restraint cannot reach the goal of liberation.

# उत्तम_ संयम _धर्म Image
निमित्त के अभाव से संयम नहीं होता, उपादान के अभाव से संयम होता है।

This means that mere avoiding or absence of external attraction/ temptations cannot result in achieving self-restraint, to achieve self-restraint, we need to control our desires/ passions.

उत्तम संयम धर्मं

Self-Restraint – UTTAM SANYAM meaning Supreme Self-control i)Restraining from injury to life – Jains go to great lengths, compared to other world religions, to protect life.
#Jainism Image
This encompasses all living beings, from one-sensed onwards. The purpose of not eating root vegetables is that they contain countless one-sensed beings termed ‘nigod’. During Paryushan the Jains also do not eat green vegetables to reduce harm to the lower sensed beings. Image
ii) Self-restraint from desires or passions – These lead to pain and are therefore to be avoided.
i) Restraining injury to the self – This has been elaborated upon in Nischay Kshma Dharma.

उत्तम मार्दव ।
Supreme humility.

A mistake that makes you humble is better than an achievement that makes you Arrogant.
Such is the importance of being humble.
#दस_लक्षण #jains #Jainism #jain Image
Humility’ or ‘Not to be Proud’ is the character of this Dharma. To think that all my worldly glamour, my own body, higher caste, strength, worldly knowledge etc. will definitely destroy one or the other day then why to be proud of these?
Thus considering all the worldly possessions like a dream one becomes fully humble or modest to proceed long on the eternal path of liberation.

कैसे करें:

धर्म को केवल सुनने या पढ़ने के मानसिकता न रखें: सुनना नहीं गुणना(आत्मसात करना) धर्म है

जो जन्म लेता लेता है उसका मरण निश्चित है और यह जीवन की एक अनिवार्य घटना है। मरते समय अपने भावों को सम्हालते हुए, कषाय को भी देह के साथ त्यागना ही सल्लेखना का उद्देश्य है। सल्लेखना के साथ मरण करने वाला शीघ्र ही मोक्ष प्राप्त करता है।
#जय_जिनेन्द्र #Jainism #जिनवाणी एक मुनि सल्लेखना के समय सेव...
सल्लेखना क्या है ?

१. अच्छे प्रकार से काय और कषाय का लेखन करना अर्थात् कृश करना सल्लेखना है।

२. बाहरी शरीर को और भीतरी कषायों के उत्तरोत्तर पुष्ट करने वाले कारणों को घटाते हुए भले प्रकार से लेखन करना अर्थात् कृश करना सल्लेखना है। (स.सि., 7/22/705)
मरण किसी को इष्ट नहीं है। प्रधानमंत्री भी चाहता है कि हमारी सीट पाँच वर्ष तक सुरक्षित रहे, सर्विस करने वाला भी यही चाहता है मेरी सर्विस 60 वर्ष तक चलती रहे। उसी प्रकार संयमी भी चाहता है कि मेरा रत्नत्रय सुरक्षित रहे
किन्तु रत्नत्रय भावों के साथ शरीर का भी साथ चाहता है।

“Ahimsa is the highest duty.”

The primary rule in #Hinduism, #Jainism and #Buddhism is “dharma”

And the first of all dharma is “ahiṃsā” (non-violence) - this starts with food.

The idea that human being don’t kill any life-forms for food.

@TIinExile @Aabhas24 @truejainology
करुणा✨means more than just being nice.

Being kind to all living entities, not just to humans, but also to animals, birds, insects, etc..

This is because the living entity, depending on its consciousness, can take a material body in any one of the 8,400,000 species of life.
Therefore, to develop and maintain the quality of mercy, one must follow the principle of no meat eating.

This includes no eating of meat, fish, eggs, or insects.

In this way, Spiritual path remain free from so many unnecessary karmic reactions.

Those who think Hinduism and jainism are very alike, with no differences and is a part of it,
plz read this.
Jainism is Not a branch of Hinduism.
In Jainism, one definite path to attain liberation (moksha) is prescribed. The prescribed threefold path consists of the three jewels
of Jainism
 (Right belief, Right knowledge, Right conduct).
In Hinduism, no one definite path to salvation is prescribed.
#JAINS #Jain #Jainism
According to Jain cosmology, the universe is eternal, it is neither created nor it can be destroyed.
In Hinduism, it is believed to by a creator, and destroyed by God, to be created again.

A worthwhile read:-
Suppose u are guarding the gates of a city
Far away u spot a enemy approaching towards you
If you close the gates immediately, they,ll stop wherever they are and go away. If you close gates slowly they,ll start running towards you faster,@vinayak_jain

even if they fail enter they will reach too close to go back peacefully.
Same way :-
The thing you are trying to avoid will come to you faster , if u want to get rid of something do it fast and abruptly.
Let it be anything a bad habit or bad experience.

पूज्य पुरुषों की वंदना-स्तुति हमें पूज्य बनने की प्रेरणा देती है। इतना ही नहीं उनके मार्ग पर चलकर हम उन जैसा भी बन सकते हैं। हमारे आराध्य पूज्य नवदेवता हैं-
अरिहन्त जी
सिद्ध जी
आचार्य जी
उपाध्याय जी
साधु जी
जिन धर्म
जिन अागम
जिन चेत्य
जिन चैत्यालय
धर्म स्थान में जिनका पद महान होता है, जो गुणों में सर्वश्रेष्ठ होते हैं उन्हें परमेष्ठी कहते हैं।

जीव जिस पद में स्थित होकर आत्म - साधना करते हुए अन्तत: मोक्ष-सुख को प्राप्त करते हैं उस पद को परम पद कहा जाता है।

परमेष्ठी ५ हैं  - अरिहंत, सिद्ध, आचार्य उपाध्याय और साधु परमेष्ठी।
अरिहन्त परमेष्ठी का स्वरूप -

जिन्होंने चार घातिया कर्मों को नष्ट कर दिया हैं तथा जो अनंत ज्ञान, अनंत दर्शन, अनंत वीर्य, अनंत सुख रूप अनंत चतुष्टय से युक्त हैं। समवशरण में विराजमान होकर दिव्यध्वनि के द्वारा सब जीवों को कल्याणकारी उपदेश देते हैं, वे अरिहंत परमेष्ठी कहलाते हैं।

Today, on the occasion of Janma Kalyanak of Lord Neminath, I am extremely saddened to witness that no one remembers the land where the Lord was born ~ Shri Shouripuri Tirth.

Read more about this tirth in the thread
#jain #jainism #neminath #research
Situated near Agra in UP, this tirth is mentioned in various Agams like Samavayang Sutra, Uttaradhyayan Sutra, Avashyak Niryukti, Kalpasutra etc. Shri Bhagvati Sutra mentions that even Lord Mahavir visited this place where he gave a sermon about the past life of a fisherman.
Even the famous traveler Megasthenes visited this place. The original mulnayak parmatma of this tirth was installed by Akbar Pratibodhak Acharya Heervijaysurishwarji Maharaja. Many ancient Jain relics were excavated from this town by Sir Alexander Cunningham.

Thread | #BEEF it OR not
Man used to eat meat, before 10000 BCE, however, as Man started Grains cultivation in Indian History, their preference on meat as food decreased. And virtually it was NIL till ~1500 AD
Let us see how it evolved through antiquity

TEETH are first indicators of whether an animal is #HERBIVOROUS or #CARNIVOROUS
Look at the teeth sets of a human dating BCE 7000, They were NOT meat-eaters.
A study conducted on Jaws from Upper Palaeolithic to Bronze Age shows that dental (crown) dimensions and mandibular dimensions between HUNTERS & FARMERS shifted to sedentism & agricultural subsistence thousands yrs ago.…

It is said that the mothers of would-be Tirthankaras witness 14 auspicious objects in their dreams. Mata Trishala also had these dreams, which filled her with wonder. She told King Sidharth about the dreams. He told her that these dreams seemed very auspicious.

The 1st dream Queen Trishala had was of an Elephant.
This dream indicated that Queen would give birth to a child with exceptionally good character. The four tusk signified that he would guide the spiritual chariot with its four components: monks, nuns, laymen and laywomen.
The 2nd dream Queen Trishala had was of a Bull. The bull was noble, grand and had a majestic hump. Its horns were superb and sharply­ pointed.
This dream indicated that her son would be highly religious and spiritual teacher. He would help cultivate religion.
