‘Maina’ was born as the first child of Smt. Mohini Devi, the wife of Shri Chotteylal Ji Jain of Tikaitnagar (Dist.-Barabanki, U.P.) on 22nd October 1934, the day of Sharad Poornima. By the regular study (Swadhyaya) of ‘Padmanandi-panchvinshatika’, an ancient Jain scripture, which was given to mother Mohini in dowry by her parents, Maina developed a deep feeling of renouncing the world. Infact, such feelings were deeply rooted in her since previous births. At the tender age of 18 years, Maina took the vows of lifelong Celibacy, Seven Pratimas (Vows for householders) and the renouncement of home from Acharyaratna Shri Deshbhushan Ji Maharaj in 1952 on the very day of Sharad Poornima.Later in 1953 the first Brahmacharini of the 20th century Km. Maina took Kshullika Deeksha (Primary stage of initiation) from Acharya Shri Deshbhushan Ji on Chaitra Krishna Ekam at Mahavir ji Atishaya Kshetra (Rajasthan) to become ‘Kshullika Veermati’. In 1955 Veermati Ji stayed in the holy feet of Charitra Chakravarti Acharya Shri Shantisagar Ji Maharaj for one month at the time of his Samadhi at Kunthalgiri and as per his order, She took Aryika Deeksha (Highest stage of initiation for females) from Acharya Shri Veersagar Ji Maharaj, the first disciple Pattacharya of Acharya Shri Shantisagar Ji, on Vaishakh Krishna Dooj of 1956 at Madhorajpura (Jaipur-Rajasthan) to become Aryika Gyanmati.

Lord Rishabhdev


Lord Rishabhdev

Introduction

Rishabhdev also known as Adinatha, is the First Tirthankara of this time cycle. According to Jainism Tirthankara is a great human being who attains liberation by destroying all his karmas and becomes a role model for every living being. A Tirthankara not only attains salvation himself but also helps all those who are sincerely trying to seek nirvana by preaching and guiding them. Jain's trace their history through a succession of twenty-four Tirthankaras. All these propagators have legendary accounts of their life described in various scriptures(granthas).

Rishabhdev's Life

Lord Rishabhdev is said to have been the king and founder of the legendary "Ikshvaku" dynasty. He was of Golden colour and lived for 99 lakh purvas. His symbol or emblem is Bull.

Birth And Early Life

He was born(Janma-kalyanak) on the auspicious day of Chaitra Krishna Navmi to Mother Marudevi and Father Nabhiraja. It is believed that His mother Marudevi saw sixteen dreams(solah swapna) the night before Rishabhdev was incarnated in her womb. The embodiment(Garbha-kalyanak) of Lord Adinatha into his mother's womb is celebrated on Asadha Krishna dwitiya. After his birth Saudharm Indra takes him to Panduk Shila for annointment. Lord Adinatha looked so beautiful that Saudharm Indra formed 1000 eyes to look at wonderful baby and satisfy his eyes.

Five Anuvratas AND Sallekhna

According to Jain tradition, there are four types of destinities i.e. gatis in the world. These are Manushaya (human), Tiryanch (sub-human), Naraki (hellish-beings) and Dev (celestials). Out of these, Manushaya Gati i.e. human beings are the best because they have the power of thinking and so they can adopt different vows to have restraint & austerity in their lives. Today I will tell you about five ANUVRATAS i.e. Minor or Partial vows, which are supposed to be the characteristic contribution of Jain Philosophy for the whole world. As an atom bomb can destroy half of the world at a time, in the same way, Anuvratas, if adopted in life, destroy the world of sins of the person. Five Anuvratas are, infact, the shield for defending the person from 5 sins i.e. Himsa (Violence) Jhuth (telling lie), Chori (stealing), Kusheel (Non-Chastity) & Parigrah (Possessions beyond the needs). These five sins are the basic causes of the disbalance & distress in life because by the indulgement in these sins, the person is always suspicious, disturbed and earn unauspicious Karmas. Five Anuvratas described by Tirthankar Bhagwants, are the basic tools for eradicating these sins from the life. These Anuvratas are above the caste & creed and anybody on the earth can adopt these ‘Minor Vows’ to make life meaningful & worthy. Read More...

Once upon a time prince Jivandher recited Namokar Mantra to a dying dog and due to its effect the dog became a heavenly deity called Sudershan Yakshendra . From there he came down to Jivandher and greeted him with much respect.

AISO PANCH NAMOYARO,

SAVVA PAVAPPANASANO.
MANGALANAM CHA SAVVESIM,
PADHAMAM HAVAI MANGALAM.

The meaning of the above verse is that reciting of the Namokar Mantra destroys all evil-effects and this mantra is supreme in auspiciousness.

I want to do the Abhishek
