Jaykumar Jalaj con The Basic Thought Of Bhagavan Mahavir
This work was originally written in Hindi in 2002 upon the request of the government of Madhya Pradesh, on the occasion of the 2600th birth anniversary of Lord Mahavir. The author, in simple, contemporary, yet powerful language reveals to us the teachings of Mahavir. Now translated into several languages, it has sold more than 80,000 copies worldwide.Mahavir attained omniscience after realising the true nature of reality. His knowledge transcended barriers of space and time, so that he could see the past, present and future concurrently. Self and non-self became evident. All substances in the world, together with all their manifestations, became manifest to him, as clear as a gooseberry held in the palm of one's hand. And all of this was spontaneous, effortless, without conation or the need for sensory perception. The attainment of omniscience enabled Mahavir to assimilate within himself the mutual relationship between entities and set standards of appropriate behaviour which allowed each living being the space to live in peace and tranquility with all others. He perceived the eternal truths of anekanta (many-sidedness of reality), syadvada (contextual concomitance of each substance in the universe), ahimsa (non-violence), aparigraha (detachment from external substances), acaurya (refraining from taking what does not belong to one) and bramacarya (purity of mind and body) and underlined the key importance of tolerance and mutual respect for harmonious coexistence with all living beings in the universe. He knew that if one waters the roots of a plant, one need not water its flowers, fruits and leaves - hence his tremendous emphasis on tolerance and mutual respect, the cornerstones of a peaceful existence. Mahavir, victorious in the struggle between self and non-self, realised the importance and uniqueness of the soul, its distinctness from the body, and the nonidentical nature of the body with the soul. Mahavir's supreme detachment from all that existed other than his soul has been beautifully captured by Indian sculpture, which depicts him either in seated or standing position, with eyes half closed, but aware and alert - awake to the self and inattentive to the external world. Mahavir knows himself. Knowing oneself is knowing everything. The primary focus of the omniscient soul is itself.
