पर्युषण महापर्व

Paryushan Parva is a grand Jain festival of self-introspection, self-enlightenment and self-achievement, which ultimately leads to the one and only one final goal, i.e., liberation or salvation.
                                                                                                                P. L. Jain, Chief Editor

पर्युषण महापर्व की आराध्ना संपन्न हुई है। पर प्रश्न है कि क्या हमने पर्युषण मन से मनाये हौं क्या हमने क्षमायाचना की है।क्या हमने क्षमादान दिया है! तीन शब्दों पर हमें विचार करना है।

1. क्षमायाचना2. क्षमादान3. क्षमापना

अपनी गल्तियों के क्षमा मांगना, क्षमायाचना है। किसी व्यक्ति के द्वारा माफी मांगने पर उसे क्षमा करना, क्षमादान है। क्षमायाचना बहुत आसान है। क्यांकि हमें अपनी गल्तियों का पता है। और गलती जो मंनै की हैं इस कारण तकलीफ सामने वाले को हुई है मुझे नहीं इस कारण उस गलती के प्रति मै इतना संवेदनशील भी नहीं होता। परिणाम उसने भुगता है मै केवल उसके द्वारा कहीं  मुझे हानि न हो, इस कारण माफी मांग लता हुँ। अन्तर मे सरलता है या नहीं अलग बात है पर अपनी सरलता को प्रकट करने का यह आसान तरीका है। माफी मांगकर मै यह बता भी सकता हुँ कि देखो मै कितना सरल हुँ। माफी मांगकर मै गंदे उसके पाले मे डाल देता हुँ। और बोल देता हुँ - मंनै तो माफी मांग ली, अब वो नहीं देता तो मै क्या करूँ।

जबकि क्षमादान मुश्किल है क्यांकि परिणाम मेंनै भुगता है उसकी टीस मरे मन में बरकरार है इसलिये जब सामने वाला माफी मांगता है तो मैं उसे नाटक करार देता हुँ। मन से क्षमा कर नहीं पाता। तीसरा शब्द बहुत ही महत्वपूर्ण है। क्षमायाचना और क्षमादान दोनों इकतरफा घटना है। जबकि क्षमापना सामूहिक वातावरण है। क्षमापना शब्द का अर्थ है- क्षमा करना भी और क्षमा मांगना भी। लेकिन इसका एक और गंभीर अर्थ है- ऐसी स्थिति का निर्माण करना, जिसमे बाद मे क्षमा मांगने या क्षमा करने की आवश्यकता न हो! इतना एकमेक हो जाना। क्षमा के परिणाम को प्राप्त कर लेना। अपने मन और जीवन को सहज बना लेना, क्षमापना है। जिस बात की क्षमा मांगी है और जिस बात के लिये क्षमा दी है, उन बातों को हृदय से ही निकाल देना। भूला देना, क्षमापना है। प्रार्थना है परमात्मा से कि ऐसी क्षमापना का अवतरण हमारे अन्तर मे हो। ...........................उपाध्याय मणिप्रभसागर



Ahmedabad: A common construction site in Shantinagar society in Usmanpura drew many curious visitors morning with the sudden appearance of three eight-feet-tall Jain idols. Religious heads and residents from nearby thronged the site to perform poojas and later chalked out a plan to install them in a community hall nearby. Around 10.30 a JCB machine operator,while excavating the place,felt a huge stone underneath. On digging, head of a Jain deities idol emerged. The labourers dug out the land further and brought out the idol carefully. The residents of adjoining apartments, who saw the idol, rushed to the site and started digging the place nearby and found two more idols.

Jain priests Harihant Sagarji and Muni Padmajit Sagarji who were present at the spot claimed that the idols may be four hundred years old and its makers had hidden the statues during an attack by the Mughal army. The priests also claimed that the idols were made by artisans from Khambat and were being transported into the city. However, the state archeology department had a completely different version to tell. Scientists claimed that the three idols were incomplete and looked similar. The chisel work suggested that it could not be more than 100 years old. Idols of this size were normally constructed near a temple site. The idols seem incomplete as the artisans have not carved the vehicles of the tirthankars and specific signs on the idols body that can help devotees identify the revered gods. The artisans may have left the idols for some reason which is not known yet, says director of state archeology department Y S Rawat. The idols were found disfigured. They share striking similarity to Khambati style. This style of idol is present at a Jain temple at Shambhavnath Ni Khadki in Zaveri Bazaar. While one of the murti is of Lord Adheswar, the other two are yet to be identified. The idols are 88 inches tall, 67 inches broad and 29 inches thick. Ketan Shah of Shantinagar Shwetambar Murtipujak Jain Sangh said: After getting permission from ASI, we will put these idols for darshan. So far,10,000 people, including monks, have visited the site where the idols are kept. But Muni Padmajit claimed, Similar Jain idols are present in Sambhav Nath ni Khadki in Zaveriwad area in the walled city which are smaller in size compared to the ones found at this site. We believe that the idols were being brought for a new Jain temple and that they were hidden fearing attacks. Virendra Shah who owned a bungalow at the site for many years had sold the property to Anil Patel, a builder ,for a residential apartment scheme at the site. It was during the digging to lay the foundation at the site that the idols were revealed. The foundation of the bungalow was just one metre deep, while the idols were found four metres deep. There was no way that Shah could have known about the presence of the idols, said a resident.

जैन मुनिपारस मुनि महाराज के २३६० उपवास पूर्ण

मुंबई। भ्रष्टाचार के विरुद्ध जंग लड़ रहे अण्णा हजारे के १२ उपवास को लेकर देश में हलचल मच गई है। जबकि एक जैनमुनि २३६० दिन के उपवास कर चुके हैं। माटुंगा उपाश्रय में विराजित ५७ वर्ष के पारस मुनि महाराज ने ४० वर्ष पूर्व दीक्षा ली थी। तभी से दिनों दिन उपवास किये जाने से उनके अनुयायी उन्हें उपवास महाराज के रुप में पहचानने लगे हैं। मुनि श्री ने वर्तमान में ३० दिन के उपवास (मास...) किये। इसमें पूरा माह उबला हुआ पानी ही पिया। अब उनके लिए उपवास करना सामान्य बन गया है। १७ वर्ष में दीक्षा ग्रहण के बाद चार दशक दरम्यान प्रतिवर्ष एक माह तक उपवास कर चुकेहैं। इस तरह २३६० उपवास किये हैं । एक बार उन्होंने ३० दिन से अधिक उपवास करने का प्रयास किया लेकिन उपवास बाद अनशन छोड़ दिया था। अन्न ग्रहण करने से शरीर पर असर होता है और आज भी उन्हें एकाद बार उल्टी होती है । खाली पेट में पित्त बन जाता है। इतने उपवास के बाद भी मुनि एकदम सक्षम लगते हैं। मुनि श्रो को भाग्य से ही आराम मिलता है। लगातार वह जैन शास्त्रों का अध्ययन करते हैं। ध्यान करते हैं अनुयायियों को प्रवचन उपदेश देते हैं। वह सभी को उपवास करने को कहते हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि कर्म के बंधनों से छुटने एवं शरीर की आंतरिक शुद्धि करण के लिए उपवासजरुरी है। अनशन उनके लिए उत्सव के समान है। Courtsey: Yashwat Malaiya,

In response to a petition by the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organizations, the Animal Welfare Board of India has issued a circular asking the Chief Secretaries of State Governments and the Director General of Foreign Trade to prohibit sale, manufacture, use and import of glue traps. Glue traps, also known as glue boards or sticky traps, are a type of non-lethal or restraining rodent traps that are used mostly to trap rats and mice. The animals are caught in the trap by their feet or fur and these attached animals are thrown away still stuck to the trap, and cannot escape. They endure a prolonged period of terror, pain and distress before death. Their desperate efforts to escape from the trap result in torn skin and broken legs while some even try to bite off their limbs in an attempt to get away. "The use of glue traps for controlling rats and rodents is in contravention of the provisions contained in Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960," said an official. Courtesy: ARF


While the people's movement against corruption enters a critical stage, the animal activists have urged Anna Hazare to immediately intervene and save the poor donkeys from being harassed at various ongoing rallies. A letter written by Federation of Indian Animals Protection Organisations (FIAPO) has stated that in India there are approximately 1.6 million donkeys which are largely used to do hard labour. FIAPO has requested Anna Hazare to help stop the further harassment towards animals like donkeys that are being ridiculed by protesters with a bad and cruel sense of humour. A Lucknow based activist, Kamna Trivedi, had posted an update on Facebook stating that she was sickened to see anti-corruption activists dragging a few donkeys at a procession and also slapping the poor animals for no fault of theirs. The donkeys were somehow made out to be ``symbols of corrupt officials and politicians'' at the rallies, which is rather cruel and senseless. Courtesy: ARF

Deutsche Bank has named Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen as future co-chiefs as it seeks to bridge a divide of deep mistrust between Germany and international investment bankers. Jain, the 48-year-old India-born head of Deutsche Bank's investment bank, will share power with Fitschen, the 62-year-old native German responsible for business in Europe's largest economy. The leadership duo will take over when current CEO Josef Ackermann retires in May 2012. Jain landed the top job because Deutsche Bank was keen to retain the head of a department that has consistently accounted for 70-85 percent of group profit and frequently outperformed peers in challenging market conditions.

Jain has struggled to build a network in Germany, since this was traditionally the stomping ground of either Fitschen or Ackermann. Since joining Deutsche Bank more than 15 years ago, he has never spoken a word of German at shareholder meetings or public banking events, which has helped foster the impression that he has no interest in German corporate and political dealings. Jain has played a high-profile role as mediator between business and politics as a member of the Indian Prime Minister's working group on inward investment, and as a member of Deutsche Bank's team advising the UK Treasury on financial stability.

Amritsar, The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee said the Centre's refusal to provide a separate marriage act for Sikhs is "unfortunate". In a letter to the Prime Minister, SGPC president said the Sikhs were demanding a separate marriage act because at present they have to get their wedding registered under the Hindu Marriage Act under compulsion, which affects the religious sentiments of the community. Describing the decision of the Centre as "unfortunate" and "shocking", he said it will create a sense of alienation among the Sikhs. The Sikh Marriage Act has been a long-standing demand of the community that has been fighting for an amendment to the Anand Karaj Act passed by the British in 1909. The community was demanding amendment for a special provision for registration of marriages performed under Sikh religious rights. The Centre recently ruled out any amendments to the Anand Karaj Act, saying providing a separate Act for the Sikhs would invite similar demands from other communities. "There may not be any justification for secluding Sikhs from the rest of the categories (covered by the Hindu Marriage Act), as such a step would invite similar demands from other religious denominations (like Jains and Buddhists),"Law Minister Salman Khurshid had said in Rajya Sabha. The question arises whether JAINS should also raise this issue? The community may start a debate and generally accepted views may be communicated to government , if required.

In an unfortunate incident, police of Bihar at Nalanda showered lathis on the innocent women who had gathered to express their resentment and demand recovery of a missing woman officer, Sushma Kumari. The ugly incident happened at a place, which happens to be the home place of state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and where long ago, Bhagwan Mahavir, the apostle of peace and non-violence had preached and spread the message of ahimsa. Hopefully, the authorities will take appropriate action against the culprits who had indulged in this sort of unwanted violence.

The garden is on the banks of Suvarna river and is 24km away from two Jain pilgrimage centres—Moodbidri and Karkala. All the trees belong to different species and represent a Tirthankara. They have been planted in chronological order: the first tree represents the first Tirthankara Rishabhanatha (believed to have lived around the end of the Stone Age and beginning of the Agriculture Age). The last tree represents the last Tirthankara, Vardhamadhana, also called Mahaveera, who attained Nirvana in 2635 BC.

The philosophy - The garden was set up as per the classical text of the Chavundaraya regime, which mentions the significance of each tree that represents a Tirthankara. The Tirthankaras attained knowledge after meditating under the trees, which are being grown in the garden now. As per the text, they attained Nirvana under the same trees.

Jaipur, Burglars decamped with eight silver idols of Jain deities from a temple in the city. The temple is situated a few kilometres from Sadar and Vidhayakpuri police stations. However, the burglars did not touch the antique idols and other important idols in the temple. They removed a water cooler from outside the temple to enter it. Prima facie it seems that the burglars were not professional enough to understand the value of other antique idols which were not been touched.

To mark the sixth death anniversary of Jitendra Surishwarji Maharaj and celebrate the commencement of Manishrekhashriji's 27th year as sadhvi, 5,000 Jain youth gathered and chanted navkar mantra in the premises of Hutheesing temple in Shahibaug.

The organisers said that the chanting of the navkar mantra was done for the world peace under the guidance of Jain acharyas namely Gunratnasurishwarji Maharaj along with Raviratnasurishwarji Maharaj. They further said that this was the first-of-its-kind event where youth in such large numbers gathered and chanted the navkar mantra for world peace. Prior to the chanting of mantra, the community members, under the leadership of Jain munis, took out a procession. The three-hour chanting programme also focused self motivation. Along with the chanting of the mantra, the singers sang devotional songs and added musical notes to the spiritual atmosphere.

People like Shrenik Kastur, Samveg Lalbhai, Shreyak Arvindbhai and Jindas Jethmalji and many other prominent members of the Jain community attended the event. Also present were several Jain munis and 12 diksharthis during the mantra chanting. On the occasion, five books were released. One of them is a religious scripture based on a 54 years old scripture written by Gunratnasurishri Maharaj in Sanskrit. The scripture contains around 20,000 shlokas which are translated by Rashmiratnasurishwarji Maharaj. The translation is printed on special pages which would not turn dusty at least for next 800 years.

The residents of Jain community staged chakka-jam on the main road in Jehangirabad area following demolition of illegal structure within the premises of Jain temple. The members of the community opposed the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) squad that had reached the temple to demolish a part of the structure. Heavy police force was deployed in the area to prevent untoward incident during the chakka-jam, which lasted for few hours. Sources said that a team of building permission department and anti-encroachment squad of BMC reached the Jain temple to demolish a part of premises of the temple. The devotees alleged that the BMC team barged into the temple by opening the gate with help of JCB machine. The team members also allegedly thrashed people who tried to stop them. Sources further said that they forcibly demolished the kitchen shade. As soon as the news spread, people of Jain community reached the spot and staged protest.Senior administrative officers including also reached the spot and tried to pacify the protestors. The situation remained the same for about two hours and the traffic was diverted. After several rounds of talks between administrative officers and people of the community, the chakka-jam was lifted.Later a delegation of Jain community met the Collector and complained about the incident.

ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF JAINA STUDIES Vol. 1 , JAIN ART & ARCHITECTURE, By Harihar Singh, M. N. P. Tiwari & Kamal Giri, 2010 25 x 21 cm 494 pages + 293 art plates, Hardcover Rs. 4000. Jainism, one of the oldest faiths in the world dated many thousands of years ago to the Indus Valley Civilisation. Along with Hinduism and Buddhism, Jainism is one of the three ancient Indian religious traditions. Jainism is a unique religion with its own philosophy, mythology, ethics and rituals. It has significantly preserved its personal religious identity, containing its own deities, scriptures and preceptors. Jainism has its own temples, places of worship and pilgrimage, and festivals and has made a vast contribution to Indian art, architecture, aesthetics, iconography and painting. This book covers this vast contribution. It is divided into three parts:

Part 1 by Prof Harihar Singh gives a detailed account of Jain building and architecture, found in stupas, rock-cut caves and structural temples. Architectural materials found in the Jain canon are also examined.
Part 2 by Prof MNP Tiwari discusses Jina sculptures and iconography. Such sculptural manifestations as Samavasharana, Nandishvara-dvipa, Ashta-mangala, etc. are chronologically examined with ref. to extant findings as well as scriptural descriptions.
Part 3 by Prof Kamal Giri deals exhaustively with Jain paintings in both, mural and miniature forms. The wall paintings found at Ellora, Sittannavasal and Tiruparuttikunram are discussed at length.

Giri has also brought to light illustrated Jain manuscripts written on palm-leaf, Patalis and Patacitras within their social, doctrinal and historical contexts. The work is fully illustrated and has a glossary of technical terms and a detailed bibliography. It is volume 1 of the ongoing Encyclopaedia of Jain Studies. From - Yashodhar Modi,


Medical studies presented in the "30-Day Diabetes Cure" show you the shocking proof that lowering your blood sugar with drugs can be deadlier and more dangerous than not taking the drugs at all. Researchers examined the risks for heart attack, stroke, and death in 10,000 diabetic patients. Those who reduced their blood sugar levels the most (to 6.0% A1C or lower -- considered "great" by doctors) had a higher risk of death compared to patients who did nothing and allowed their blood to rise between 7.0 and 7.9%.

As blood sugar levels dropped, more patients were having heart attacks or dying! In fact, the study had to be cancelled to protect the remaining participants. This is completely contrary to what most doctors -- and the American Diabetes Association -- tell us is the best way to treat diabetes. Yet they haven't changed their treatments! The reality is that there had never been case of these drugs curing a single diabetes patient s o he/she could discontinue them. Not one! On the contrary.......Diabetes Drugs Make Type 2 Diabetes Worse Faster! One day your pancreas (the organ that produces insulin) will burn out from all this artificial stimulation from diabetes drugs. When that happens, Type 2 diabetes will officially become Type 1 -- and you'll need to inject insulin for the rest of your life to stay alive. Then you will have lost your chance to return to a normal life forever. The misconception is gleefully perpetrated by the Diabetes Industry which stands to lose a fortune if the world's 300 million diabetics discovered the truth......They've brainwashed the public (and doctors!) into believing that diet-and-lifestyle modification is a painful, sweat-drenched path requiring super willpower, starvation, hunger, weight loss and deprivation.

The 30-Day Diabetes Cure" represents a real cure for Type 2 and prediabetes that can allow you to... Quit sticking your fingers with needles and testing your blood sugar . Discontinue all those sickening, fattening diabetes drugs, stop feeling guilty about food and trying to lose weight, end your worries about diabetic heart attack ... amputations ... or blindness and return to a normal, drug-free life .

READERS NOTES',( We do not edit this section - Editor) -

Mahaveer Chand, E-Mail: - Dear Sir, Since I am also a Jain, I would wish to convey few details with respect to money corruption in Jain community. As you are also aware of Jain community building their own temples, Jain lab, Jain hospital with the funds been collected for there particular areas where they are living. it would be a great idea if our Jain community thinks of developing free education school/college so that it could help our Jain community students who could not afford for their studies due to some family problems. also we could develop Jain conventional hall that could help a minority people who could not afford for their child's marriage due to steep rise. none of our community had still yet come to notice that Christian community thinks for welfare of their community, Muslims also the same. only our community thinks about their self respect, name in society, making money through building educational institutes, hospitals etc. Also making money from our Jain community peoples by requesting donation for their child's admission as a college welfare fund. but these welfare funds are meant for trustees whats the use of having a Jain global school that never supports Jain community people to bring out their child's future. Its an idea to rise our community for supporting Jain families through out India. kindly if you feel that the matter supports my idea please reply else i would request to forgive me if had hurt any of you by sending my ideas. Thanks and regards.

पारस चैनल में जैन मुनियों के पूर्ण नग्न सीन न दिखाएं - अभिनव शर्मा

मैंने पारस चैनल देख कर सोचा कि भले ही ये भक्ति चैनल है लेकिन जिस तरीके से इसमें नग्नता दिखाई जाती है वो भले ही जैन समाज के अनुयाइयों के लिए भक्ति होगी लेकिन दूसरों के लिए नग्नता ही कहलाएगी. यहां मैं चैनल की आलोचना नहीं कर रहा, न ही जैन धर्म की पवित्रता पर लांछन लगा रहा और न ही किसी को कुछ बुरा कह रहा हूं. मैं सिर्फ अनुरोध कह रहा हूं, बेहद विनम्रतापूर्वक. यह सच है कि जैन मुनियों के वस्त्रविहीन जीवन जीने को हम कतई नग्नता नहीं कह सकते, इस स्थिति को उनकी निश्छलता ही कहेंगे, सहजता कहेंगे, इसे हम उनका एक बड़ा त्याग कहेंगे. लेकिन जब हम इनके जीवन या आयोजन को टीवी पर दिखाते हैं तो वह छोटे-बड़े, सभी उम्र के लोगों तक पहुंचता है. ऐसे में टीवी पर जैन मुनियों को पूरी तरह दिखाने से अच्छा है कुछ तो BLUR कर दिया जाए या छुपा दिया जाए ताकि चैनल बदलते या देखते समय खासकर बच्चों पर कोई बुरा प्रभाव न पड़े. मैं चाहता हूं कि मेरी बात पारस चैनल के प्रबंधन तक पहुंचे ताकि आम दुनियादार घरों के बच्चों के जीवन व सोच पर बुरा असर न पड़े. मैं फिर अनुरोध करना चाहूंगा कि मेरी बात को जैन धर्म से कतई न जोड़ा जाए.
