SUB:- Why the soul has to go thro happy and unhappy trends
in the life.
One thing is to be very much kept in mind that Jainism believes
in rebirth of souls and according to the deeds it has to pass
through anyone of the 84 lakhs of forms and human being is one
of those forms. Hence in its past life if the soul has earned
by its deeds (good/bad) gyanavarniya etc ashta karma (eight deeds)
then in the present life he has got to go through or deals or
happiness as and when past karmas come into effect and quantum
of such happy/ unhappiness depends upon the quantum of Karmas
(deeds) arise. Hence Jainism explains/ teaches not to indulge
in hatred (ie Dwesha) over attachment (ie raga) etc and with Samta
Bhav (feelings) and with triyog of mind,speech and kaya(body)
follow the Jainism to get supreme happiness which soul automatically
What is Jain Dharsan? It is to prepare your mind to quit the
belongings(aparigrah) to become sage(muni/sadhu) and to accept
samadhi maran ( i.e. to sit in one place in meditation(dhyan)
forgetting daily routine life of taking food, water etc till the
soul goes away. For this purpose nine principles (nav tatva) are:
(1) knowing life/ lifeless (living/ nonliving) (2) Sanvar of ashtravas
due to bad conduct (mithyatva, Avrat, Kashay, Pramad, Ashubh yog
(attachment to sensual objects) (3) possibly doing good deeds
by right conduct. (By Tapa annihilating the bad deeds (5) to be
shukla paksh from Krishna Prakash. (6) achieve Samayik Ratnatraya
(7) enter in Varnavarth (8) there by get last Bhav and by anhilating
4 ghadi and 4 Aghadi (form).
THE SHAPE OF THE (WORLD)IS.
The world is full of living/ nonliving things. All the living
things are capable of thinking and listening.. Madhya Lok is of
unaccountable (Ashankhyata) yojan and in this unaccounted seas
are there, where in there is Nagar (city) of unaccountable Vanvyantar,
Jyotish Vimans and capital of unaccounted devatas. In the middle
of this all there are 2 ½ (Adhee) dweeps where in there
are 15 karmabhumi and 30 Akarmabhumi and 56 Antardweeps. In these
30 Akarma bhumi and 56 Antardweeps only yugalic human lead their
happy life through and take rebirth of Devlok only. In 5 Bharat
Kshetra and 5 Airavat Kshetra of these 15 Karmabhumi there are
Utsarpinikal of 10 kroda krodi Sagropam and Avsarpinikal of 10
Kroda krodi Sagropam. Balance 5 karmabhumi are Mahavideha Kshetra
and under 4th Aara Sukh/dukh at present, person born in these
15 Karmabhumi is only and only capable of getting liberation (the
moksha) during the same Bhav when he is born. And hence Devas
too wish and long for this rebirth but cannot. Narkee and tiryanch
souls also cannot achieve moksha because of their wrong conduct
(ie their kashay mohaniya karma) is in affect and hence incapable
to follow right conduct (ie Sampurna Charitra Palan).
At present in Mahavideh Kshetra there are 20 Thirthankaras Virajman
and 2 crore kevali and 2000 crore Sadhu/ Sadhvis in Vihar. We
all fold join our hands lean our head and say koti koti (crores
and crores) Vandan (namaskar/ bows) to them.
HOW THIRTHANKAR BHAGWANTS ARE?
Their height of the body is 500 bows (dhanush), Vajravrushabh,
Samavturashtha Samsthan, have 84 lakh purva life, and are lakshan
Dharanhar (posses). They are prayed/ served by 64 Indras. They
are without 18 dhosh (fault) and with 12 (guna) good qualities.
Also with 8 pratiharya, 34 Atishayas, with 35 (guna) good qualities
and capable of only truthful speech. All thirthankars and Kevali
Bhagwants (Arihants) are trikal darshi ie. They have knowledge
of past, (what happened) present (what is happening)and future
(what is going to happen) of every being. As such they know what
is in once mind and that too any and every moment of time. Swamy
Bhaghwants are full of infinite knowledge, infinite Darshan, infinite
faith and bliss, infinite power (veerya) and infinite Chourya.
They are bodily moving and Suyogi keval gnan, keval Darshani posses.
Charitra and with Samkit, Shukla Dhyan, Shukla leshya and shubh
yoga. They are with Anant (infinite) gunas (good qualities) like
Pandit Veerya etc etc.
In Madhya Lok and within 2 ½ dweep but out of Mahavideh
Kshetra there are unaccountable tiryanch, Shravak/ Shravika. They
have immense kindness for weak souls and they are with knowledge
of ‘Navtatva’ and 21 good qualities (guna).
In Jambu dweep which is in the middle of Madhya Lok, there is
Sudarshan meru of one lakh yojan height and jyotish Chakra of
sun/ moon etc is about 1121 yojan away from Sudharshan meru. 2
meru mountains of two ardh pushkar dweep of ghatakeekhand are
84000 yojan high.
Urdhva Lok is many fold bigger than Madhya lok where in 12 Devlok,
9 Greveyak and 5 anuttar Vimans are there. Only falsehood and
knowledges souls can approach the Geveyak Vimans whereas in Anuttar
Vimans such soul are there which will gain liberation in few of
their rebirths (Bhav). And in the Sarvasiddha (Devlok) Viman there
are souls of (Bhavsaptam) devs. These soul will get the rebirth
in human form and will get liberation (Moksha). Dev souls with
their shubh Pudgals can get formed into limited Vaikriya body
and also know different types of Avadhi gnan. Above Anuttar Viman
is available ‘Siddhasheela, and having anhilated Ashta karmas
(8 deeds) such Ananta Siddha, Niranjan and Nirakar souls occupying
that Siddhasheela. Where there is one Siddha soul, there infinite
siddha souls are expected to be welcome.
In the Avasarpini kal in this Jambudweep of bharat Kshetra with
15 Bheds and in 4th aara- 1st thirthankar Rishabhdev to 24th thirthankar
Mahaveer swamy and many other souls have attained siddha gatie
(form) with Anant Chovisi other Anant siddha souls are occupying
mukti-sheela with endless, infinite waves (ie aatmik lahar). Hence
Siddha Bhagwants are colourless (Avarn), odourless (Agandha) tasteless
(Aras) not in idol form (Amurthi)
Also they are without feelings of hunger, sorrow, disease, grief,
rebirth, oldage, death, deeds(good and bad), body etc. etc. and
they are only with Bhav/pran (soul).
Adholok is more bigger than Urdhwalok, where seven Narkas and
Bhavan patis. Dev Bhavans are available. Souls of powerful Chakravarties
and among tiryanch cruel lion etc can go in the seventh narka
if such souls have not adopted the way of Diksha etc. during that
birth. Age of lifr (soul) of Narkee is like Devlok and according
to 2 ½ dweeps of time it is not less than 10000 years and
at the maximum it is 33 sagaropam. Difference in this that body
of narkee is self created by Ashukh pudgals of Dandak Sansthan
is always with anormous itching affect with unending hunger and
unquenching thirst. Also they have to pass through all types of
ordeals (troubles) vedana and only they are capable of coming
out of Narkee Kshetra.
At all places of these three loks (ie Madhya, Urdhva, adho) and
without Samyak Drishtee (blissful vision) these souls pass through
infinite Pudagal Paravarthan and infinite times go through 4 Gaties,
24 Dandak and 84 lakh of Jivayories again and again but cannot
get mukti from this world (samsar). After knowing this it is obvious
that soul should follow Dharm Aaradhna with Samkit gyan (knowledge),
darshan and Charitra (right conduct). And thereby only soul can
attain ajaramar, unobstructed supreme happiness. With this mangal
and blissful feelings……
