(A nude saint having form of just born infant, after having purity of mind, speech and body, should perform two bows in sitting posture, then perform twelve turning-movements of folded hands in standing posture and thereafter four times bowing down- head, thus perform Kriti Karma.)
(Pronouncing sentence given below, should perform three turning-movements of folded hands in standing posture after paying obeisance with five or eight body organs (bowing down with bending both hands, both knees and head, i.e., cow posture. The Sashtang namaskar is performed with eight organs of the body viz., forehead, breast, shoulders, hands and feet) and recite Samayik Dandak in Mukta Shakti Mudra (a posture with joined hands placed together and raised to pay reverence).

My obeisance to Shri Arihanta ji, the Omniscient. My obeisance to Shri Siddha ji, the liberated souls. My obeisance to Shri Aairiyaanam ji, (Acharya ji), the preceptors.
My obeisance to Shri Upaadhayaya ji, the scriptural teachers. My obeisance to all Shri Sadhu ji, the saints, found in the whole Universe.
Only, Arihantas, Siddhas, Sadhu and religion as professed by the Omniscient, are auspicious.
Only, Arihantas, Siddhas, Sadhu and religion as professed by the Omniscient, are superior.
I take refuge of all these four who enable Bhavya Jeevas to cross the ocean of grief caused by invincible enemies in the form of Karmas.
I pay reverential homage to possession- less Arihantas ji who are devoid of four destructive Karmas, associated with infinite four excellences, viz., perception, knowledge, bliss and power and eight auspicious emblems, enriched by grandeur of Samavsaran, the assembly of Lord Arihanta, holder of supreme pure gross body, benevolent speaker and omniscient; to Siddhas ji, who are free from all the eight Karmas and associated with eight supreme virtues; to Achaaryas ji, enriched by thirty six virtues, who themselves study twelve part of scriptures, twelve Angas and fourteen Purvas, as well as teach others; to Upaadhayaya ji, who themselves are observers of pure vows; to all Sadhu ji of all the three worlds associated with twenty eight virtues and are the followers of the salvation path.
Arihanta, Siddha, Sadhu and religion professed by Kevali, the omniscient, these four are destroyer of sinful Karmas and are source of pleasure, Arihanta, Siddha, Sadhu and religion professed by Kevali, these four are supreme in the universe, i.e., associated with excellent virtues and enable Bhavya Jeeva to attain supreme positions.
I take refuge of all these four, viz, Arihanta, Siddha Sadhu and religion as professed by the Omniscient, who enable Bhavya Jeeva to cross the ocean of grief caused by invincible enemies in the form of Karma.

As many as there are Lord Jinendras, the founder of Tirtha (primeval eternal places of pilgrimage like Ayodhya, Sammed Shikhar ji are symbolically the auspicious means to the path of salvation), Tirthankara, Jina, supreme omniscient Arihantas found in two-and-half continents, in two great oceans and in fifty lands of action (Karma Bhoomi), I pay homage to all of them with Kriti Karama. They know all meanings (of scriptures), hence they are the great learned and are enlightened, are themselves embodiment of pleasure, hence they are destroyer of world caused by boundless karmas or I pay homage with Kriti Karma to each of those Antkrit Kevali (the ten number of specific Kevalis during each of the Tirthankara’s period who destroy the destructive karmas by enduring arduous/rigorous calamity and thereafter manifesting omniscience, attain the position of Siddha after destroying all remaining karmas merely after an Antarmuhurta, i.e. after 48 minutes). And I pay homage with Kriti Karma to Achaaryas, the observers of right conduct, to Upaadhayayas, the preceptors of religion, to all Sadhus, the leaders of religion. I also pay homage with Kriti Karma to the master of four divisions of the army of religion (Muni, Aryika, Shravak and Shravika) adorable by all the four types of celestial beings, the God of gods, such Arihanta, Siddha, Acharya, Upaadhayaya and sadhu as well as three virtues of the right knowledge, right perception and right conduct.

O Lord Jinendra! I perform three times equanimity (Traikalik Samayik, an act of procedural adoration of Lord Arihanta). I renounce all violent and sinful activities of mind, speech and body. I will neither indulge in three kinds of sinful activities by mind, by speech and by the body as long as I am alive nor will make anyone to indulge in any one of such activities, nor will consider it worthwhile seeing others indulging in such activities. I renounce transgressions related to Kriti Karma of Arihantas, etc. I do self-witnessed- reproach and confess my own faults before Guru, not only this but till I perform devotion of Lord Arihanta Deva, I renounce all bad activities responsible for committing sinful acts.
(Counting beads of rosary of Namokar Mantra nine times)
(Recite Namokar mantra nine times in twenty seven breathings in standing position assuming Jinendra Mudra (lustrous posture of Lord Jinendra) after performing three times turning movements of folded-hands and one time bowing-down the head, perform Panchang Namaskar and thereafter perform three times turning movements of folded-hands in standing posture in Mukta Shakti Mudra (i.e., posture with joined hands placed together and raised to pay reverence) and one time bowing down the head and then recite Thossami Stav.)

Those who are more excellent than Gandharas, who have conquered the infinite world or who are infinite Arihanta Jinendra endowed with omniscience, who are adorable by Chakravarti etc., which are the excellent in the human-universe, who have destroyed the filth of knowledge-obscuring and perception-obscuring karmas, who have achieved worshipfulness or who are supreme learned, I adore such Tirthankaras. || 1 ||

Those who are illuminator of universe by omniscience, are propagator of supreme forgiveness, etc. auspicious means for the path of salvation in the form of ten supreme virtues (Das Dharma), are conqueror of enemies of Karmas or fully endowed with omniscience, I will eulogize such twenty four Tirthankaras with adoration by their own respective names. || 2 ||

Thus the excellent 24 Tirthankaras eulogized by me are devoid of filth of dust of Karmas, free from oldness and death and more excellent than other Jain saints possessing right spiritual knowledge, may please with me, the performer of eulogy. || 6 ||
Kittiya vandiya mahiya yede logottama jinaa siddhaa |

Eulogized by words, adored by mind and worshipped by body, such world’s excellent, fully gratified Jinendra may bestow upon me quite full knowledge, holy death and perfect knowledge (Omniscience). || 7 ||
Chandehim nimmalyara aaichchehim ahiypaha satta |

Who is More pure and clean than the moon owing to complete destruction of entire coverings, more shining than the sun owing to association with the radiance of omniscience (Kevalgyan) thereby illuminator of the whole universe & profound like the sea owing to brimful with invisible gems of virtues, such Lord Siddha may give me, the performer of eulogy, accomplishment (achievement of super power) free from all Karmas in the form of salvation. || 8 ||
(Again performing three times turning movements of folded hands and one bowing down head in standing position and reciting that Bhakti i. e. devotion of Lord Jinendra which you had resolved, recite Anchalika of that Bhakti sitting in cow posture. Sometime, if you don’t want to do Kritikaram in standing position then perform complete procedure in sitting posture , the only difference is that the recitation of nine times Mahamantra (Namokarmantra ) has to be recited in Yogmudra (i.e, a cross-legged posture of meditation) in sitting position.)

My obeisance to such last Teerthankara Lord Vardhman Jina in whose knowledge all the three universes reflect like cow’s hoof. ||1||
I pay obeisance bowing my head to all such Siddhas who liberated by penance, by stand point (i.e. Naya), by restraint, by conduct, by knowledge and by perception. ||2||

O Lord! I performed equanimity related to ‘Siddha Bhakti’ who are associated with right knowledge, right perception, and right conduct, are free from all the eight kinds of ‘Karmas’, are enriched with eight highest virtues, are ensconced at the top of upper universe, are liberated by stand-point, are liberated by restraint, are liberated by conduct, are liberated from past, future, present by all these three times. I always adore, worship and pay homage daily to all such Siddhas, my grief may destroy, my Karamas may destroy, I may gain perfect knowledge of gems-trio (right perception, right knowledge and right conduct), I may move towards good course of life, I may embrace holy death and may get the riches of virtues of Lord Jinendra.
Thus the second chapter of Shri Gautam Gandhar Vani completes.
