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”
Prayer of all Jains living all over the world-noble and great
Any prayer is Divine and appealing to the Omnipotent to grant!
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!
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!
