MAHAVEER JAYANTHI is today! (19/4/16)

 

Mahavir2

India, the land of sanctity and holiness,
Gave birth to a chain of seers and saints of great virtues
A link in the chain is Mahavira-twenty fourth
Jain Thirthankara – Vardhamana,-the last and great!!

 

Though  born in a family royal, left at thirty
And for years twelve pursued  spirituality!
Meditation intense and penance very severe
Made him omniscient became a kevali-austere!

 

Non-injury, truth, non-stealing, chastity and sure
Non-attachment elevates quality of life pure!
Mahaveera spread the message for years thirty
Gautama Swami compiled the teachings quite swiftly!

 

Namo Arihantanam: – I bow to the enlightened souls
Namo Siddhanam: – I bow to the liberated souls
Namo Ayariyanam: – I bow to religious leaders
Namo Uvajjayanam: – I bow to religious teachers
Namo Loe Savva Sahunam: – I bow to all monks of the world
Eso Panch Namukkaro:   – These five salutations are capable of
Savva Pava Panasano:    destroying all the sins and this is
Mangalancha Savvesin:    the first happiness among all forms
Padhamam Havai Mangalam:   of happiness

 

Oh! My Lord! Let me not do any harm even to germs
Let me finish my dinner early,-avoiding harm to worms
No harm to humans, animals and birds- any living being
Grant me moksha allowing no karmas accumulating!

 

Jains a great set of pious and peaceful Indians
Serving the cause of Motherland India- Bharath
Mahaveera attaining moksha-liberated soul
At his age seventy two-golden birth and samadhi!
