What restriction on the hand-howl saint ?
Why fasting the body, the co-traveller?
Who is free from attachment-aversion?
How bondage of new Karma to that wayfarer?“The friend of the friend is indeed a friend and the enemy of the friend is also an enemy.”
The above apt saying apply correctly on the worldly being en¬tangled in the thought contrary to the real nature of the matter and in passion. But who are beyond world even living in the world they relish the savour of equanimity keeping themselves aloof from the thoughts of foe and friends. They strive for getting the pitcher filled with equani- mous feelings.
They neither have poison of dissimilarity inwardly or outwardly nor any context of liking or disliking. The worldly being wants to extinguish fire with the fire, wants to clean the dirty clothes precisely, with the dirt but it neither happened so far nor will ever happen in future, then why to see friend-foe outside?
That is only the reflection of the inner karma which time to time makes us realise their existence, fruition & dissociation after giving their fruit. Besides this, they give us chance to take care of our contrary feelings by the coolness of equa¬nimity and restraint.
On the bank of the world there is neither grief nor pleasure; neither any one is others nor is ours; neither there is poison of dissimilarly nor the existence of similarity. All these exist in the fickle flow of conscious thoughts of our soul.
Well, outside there is only reaction of the action, is fruit of our deeds; is extension of the inert substance and is the infinite darkness of the blackness of our attachment- aversion. Hence, take care of yourself at every moment by adoring genvs-trio and take out your element of soul from other matters and feeling and snares of options of mineness- thiness so that you may make yourself as the self existent Almighty God, you may attain yourself
immersing in yourself. This very is the glory of the ’ Karpatri’ (i.e. who takes food in the bowl of his own hands, i.e. jain saint). It is the good use of the co-operating body and is the appropriate measure for the release from the bond of the bondage of Karinas.
If there is ascertained desire to obtain the place of God in the form of religion of truth then the restraint saint should remove the thorn of anger,should not be obstructed by mountain of greed, should never fall in the pit of fear, should abandon the demon of ridicule and should always remain firm on the path of speaking in accordance with the sacred spiritual injunctions, i.e. should speak words in accordance with the scriptures.
There is whole world of difference (Vast differences) between ‘occurring violence’ and ‘doing violence similar to the difference between the work of a farmer and of fisherman. The farmer cultivates land in which living beings are killed but as he has no intention to kill living beings, he is a man of non-violence character but the fisherman who is planning fishing sitting even in the house ,is a savage (a violent man.)
