O brethren! The good company and good moral conduct are needed for the beauty of the soul. It is crime to keep others in your possession.
If you want to free yourself from the crime then return that thing to its real owner. There is difference between crime committed knowingly and committed unknowingly. The crime committed knowingly comes under the category of violence.
While done unknowingly will also come under violence but you will not be subjected to punishment. According to ‘Karma’ theory crime/passion committed knowingly or without taking appropriate precaution, negligently then the fault will be appended according to the crime committed but if after due care and precaution the violence is still committed then relatively mild fault will be appended. Worldly courts also decide cases on the basis .
of intentionally committed crime and committed unintentionally. We daily perform ‘ Pratyakhiyan’, i.e. we beg pardon daily from Lord Jinendra for our faults. If we beg pardon outworldly only by words and internally may not follow it in practice then, in fact, that begging-pardon is not begging-pardon. What has been abandoned, abandoned that for¬ever, then not the least of that should be regarded as ours.
Brothers! If the feeling of attachment to the abandoned thing persists within your inner heart then that abandonment is of no use. When there is uncertainty in the mind or attachment in the heart then how that would be abandonment?
,the right knowledge about self cannot take place and without right knowledge about self there can be no state of indeterminate ecstasy, i.e. absolute meditation. The one who will live regarding other’s thing as his own, is a suffering person and who will live with renouncement regarding others thing as of other, is a happy person.
The feelings of pleasure-pain do not come from some outer source, these all exist within us. Feelings of anger ,etc. open the doors of hellish life-course. Precisely, the passion-stained souls activity (leshya) ,i.e. thought-feeling introduced us to the auspicious & inaus-
picious matters. Hence harmony between our thoughts and our life is essential. We ourselve should see our transformation of feelings.
If they are in harmony with our thoughts, then it is ok otherwise it will akin to the non-harmony between your thought and those of your wife due to which the life becomes hell. Where there is no carefulness, the accident happens only there.
Hence the life is your own, live it with intimacy and self-respect. If you have renounced outwardly with due care then carry it on honestly. If you are internally/ intensely attached to the thing then you will not be able to renounce that. If we have learnt to accept our mistake only then we can get rid of our sins by correcting our mistake.
