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

This all I know as a Jain and that is all I need to know:
Knowing the significance of my Gurudev- Bhagawan Vardhamana
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!

Indeed today is the day HOLIEST MAHAVEER JAUANTHI
For the Jains all over the world engaged in their chosen profession
Yet doing a lot of services to Society -providing water
Food and solace wherever needed and by whomsoever needed!

Yes, FEBRUARY ended with a sad note that the present senior Pontiff of KANCHI KAMAKOTI SHANKARA MUT, Kanchipuram, Tamilnadu- HIS HOLINESS JAGADGURU SHRI JAYENDRA SARASWATHY attained SAMADHI at the age of 82.

Here is a soliloquy of a disciple in Tamil and the version translated to English for the benefit of my esteemwd viewers from more than 200 countries in the world. Soliloquy is by me-N V Subbaraman this Blogger of ENVIOUS THOUGHTS:

அந்தோ காலா அந்தகாரகனானாயா
எங்கள் ஜயேந்திரர் உங்களுக்கு அத்தனை அவசரமாகத் தேவையா?
55 ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்னால் ஆந்திராவில் உள்ள அக்ககாரி பேட்டை ஏரிக்கரையில் மகா பெரியவாளையும், ஜயேந்திரரையும் தரிசித்தது இன்று காலை போல் உள்ளதே! 1992ஆம் ஆண்டில் ஸ்ரீ மடத்தில் எனது “நிலவே நீ சொல்” என்ற கவிதை நூலை முழுக்கப் படித்து, வாய் நிறைய நன்னா இருக்கு, நெறைய எழுது என்று ஆசீர் வதித்து, புத்தகத்தின் மேல் மந்திராட்சதையும், புஷ்பஙளையும் வைத்துக் கொடுத்த எனது குருநாதர் ஜயேந்திரரை எங்கு கொண்டு சென்றாய் காலா?
2013ல் சங்கர மடத்தில் எனக்கு “சேவா ரத்தினா” விருதளித்துப் பாராட்டினீர்களே-மறக்க முடியுமா?
2013ஆம் ஆண்டு எனது தியாகப்பிரம்மத்தின் பஞ்சரத்தின கீர்த்தனைகள் தமிழாக்கத்தைக் கேட்டுவிட்டு ,’நன்னாத்தான் இருக்கு. இருந்தாலும் அந்த அந்த கீர்த்தனைகள் அந்த அந்த பாஷையில் இருப்பது சிலாக்யம் “ என்று அறிவுரை கொடுத்த என் குரு நாதர் ஜயேந்திரரை மடத்தில் தரிசிக்க முடியாதே? என் அன்பு நண்பர் கவிஞர் காஞ்சி முத்து. ராமமூர்திக்கு கை உடைந்ததைப்போல வேதனை தந்துவிட்டாயே காலா? ஒரு வாரத்திற்கு முன்னால்தானே உன்னை ஆங்கிலத்தில் கேட்டேன்” டெத்- வென் வில் யூ டை?’’என்று. இன்று காலை இந்த அதிர்ச்சிச் செய்தியா?
காலா செய், உன்னால் இயன்றதை எல்லாம் செய்.
”காலா இங்கே வாடா உன்னைக் காலால் மிதிக்கிறேன்” என்ற எனது பாரதியையும் அழைத்துக் கொண்டாய். என் தகப்பனார், தாய், மனைவி அனைவரையும் அழைத்துச் சென்றாய்; அவர்களைப் பத்திரமாய் காத்து வை; எனக்கு அவர்களைக் காட்ட வேண்டும் அல்லவா?
என் வி சுப்பராமன்.

ENGLISH VERSION:
Oh, God of Death! Yama!When did you become blind?
Do you need our Jayendhra so urgently?
It looks to me as if it is this morning that I had the darshan FIFTY FIVE YEARS AGO, of Maha Periyava and Jayendhr on the banks of a lake in a place called AKKAGARI PETA in Andhra Pradesh.
In the year 1992, Jayendhra after fully reading my Tamil poetry collection titled “NILAVAE NEE SOL” (MOON YOU TELL ME), expressed his joy and blessed me to write more and more and returneedcthe book to me keeping MANTHRAAKSHATHA and FLOWERS.You have taken away my PRECEPTOR away.Where have you taken HIM?
In 2013, YOU honored me with SEVARATHNA AWARD- how can I forget that great moment in my life?
Again in 2013, after hearing my Tamil translation of Thiyagabrahmam’s Pancharathna keerthanas, He appreciated and smoothly in an unaffending tone told me that it is good that such keerthanaas are left in their original language!I can no longer have HIS darshan in the Mutt.
My close friend Poet Kanchi Muthu. Ramamurthy feels as if he is orphaned.(He is the person normally takes me to His Holiness)Just a week back I asked you in ENGLISH “Oh, DEATH when will you die?”Is this shocking news this morning?
Yes, GOD of DEATH , do what all you can do?
You have taken away my mentor Mahakavi Bharathiyar who said: oh, God of Death, you come here, I shall kick you with my feet.” You have taken my father, Mother and Wife and I hope you keep them safe as you have to show them to me one day.

“Tearful tribute to the Seer, who guided us all for several decade. Who can forget his kind smile? A genius in all our great scriptures, Vedas and samskaras. A torch bearer and a guiding star to the entire humanity. It is great loss for all of us.” Jagannathan , PRO, Sevalaya in response to my mail.

No high or low, no rich or poor, no lettered or unlettered
No weak or strong. no tall or short, no theist or atheist
No young or old-ten or hundred, five or fifty, men or women
All are equal to the Yamadharma- when the time comes He comes!

As long as we are blessed to be alive on earth let us do
Our best to the humanity- loving all and serving all,
Helping ever and hurting never- that is all we can and should
Keep the society in peace and harmony, joy and pleasant!

KANCHI SANKARA MUTT, Tamilnadu.

SPIRITUAL RETREATS

 

“Spiritual retreats” important part of religions many
Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Sufi (Islamic) -heavy
All resort to RETREATS-in solitude or community
Intimate way to improve powers of concentration and insight!.

Withdrawn from the din and dust of atmosphere in a city
Remote village far from the madding crowd- under the giant tree
A sacred hall with an atmosphere serene, simple but great
Indeed  never to be got back the retreat will be a great treat!

Spiritual retreats a source golden for reflection, prayer
And meditation for all more in Buddhism -in rainy season
Goutam  Buddha’s preachings! Darkness is ideal for the retreats
For Christians from a few hours to a month) spent away from  normal life
Reconnecting, in prayer, with God. a sacred and noble practice!
All religions have their own- for serenity, peace and poise!

NOBEL PEACE FOR TERESA Day!

“Love all, Serve all”, “Help Ever, Hurt Never” -that is all
What I know on earth and what all I need to know- stand tall
No need for religion, religious literature
Society to practice and ensure a bright future!

It is not theory but practical one canb follow
We have many who have lived and shown others can follow
Mahatma Gandhi -Father of the Nation was there
Mother Teresa who lived among us born elsewhere!

This is the day- years-long thirty seven ago
Mother Teresa got her Nobel Award for peace
We are proud and she the beacon light shown with ease
The way to live a life simple and noble on earth!
