Sthavar living beings

Balvikas Part-2-1.jpg


Worldly souls are of two kinds:
1. Tras Jeev
2. Sthavar Jeev
Living beings having one sense are called Sthavar. These living beings consist of body only with the touch sense.
Sthavars are of five kinds-
1. Prithvi-Kayika (Earth-bodied)
2. Jal-Kayika (Water-bodied)
3. Agni-Kayika (Fire-bodied)
4. Vayu-Kayika (Air-bodied)
5. Vanaspati-Kayika (Vegetation-bodied)
1)Earth-bodied beings : are those whose entire body is made of earth like soil, stone, mica, gold etc. Minerals dug from mines are called earth-bodied but when they are removed from their original place, they become lifeless.
2)Water-bodied beings : are those whose whole body is water-based like ice, hail, dew etc
3)Fire-bodied beings : are those whose whole body is fire- based like flame of the lamp, fire, lightening etc.
4)Air-bodied beings : are those whose whole body is air- based like wind, storm etc.
5)Vegetation-bodied beings : are those whose whole body consists of vegetation like trees, creepers, fruits, flowers etc.
