यथा चतुर्भिः कनकं परीक्ष्यते
निघर्षणच्छेदनतापताडनैः।
तथा चतुर्भिः पुरुषः परीक्ष्यते
त्यागेन शीलेन गुणेन कर्मणा॥

yathā caturbhiḥ kanakaṃ parīkṣyate

As gold is tested in four ways by rubbing, cutting, heating and beating – so a man should be tested by these four things: his renunciation, his conduct, his qualities, and his actions.
---------------------
जिस तरह सोने की परख घिसने से, तोडने से, गरम करने से और पिटने से होती है, वैसे हि मनष्य की परख विद्या, शील, गुण और कर्म से होती है ।

बौद्धपौर्णिमायाः शुभाशयाः ।

-----------------------
न चैष धर्मो वनए एव सिद्धः पुरेऽपि सिद्धिर्नियता यतीनां ।
बुद्धिश्च यत्नश्च निमित्तं अत्र वनं च लिङ्गं च हि भीरुचिह्नं ॥
-----------------------
na caiṣa dharmo vanae eva siddhaḥ pure'pi siddhirniyatā yatīnāṃ ।
buddhiśca yatnaśca nimittaṃ atra vanaṃ ca liṅgaṃ ca hi bhīrucihnaṃ ॥
----------------------
Attainment is not only achieved in forests,
the salvation of ascetics can be accomplished
even in a city; thought and effort are the true means.
The forest and the badge are only coward's signs.
----------------------
उद्धार केवल जंगलों में ही नहीं होता,
एक शहर में भी तपस्वियों के मोक्ष
को पूरा किया जा सकता है; विचार और प्रयास ही सही साधन हैं। जंगल और उपाधि केवल कायरता के संकेत हैं।

Two birds, inseparable companions, perch on the same tree,
one eats the fruit, the other looks on. The first bird is our
individual self feeding on the pleasures and pains of this world;
The other is the universal Self, silently witnessing all.
--------------------------------
दो पक्षी, अविभाज्य साथी, एक ही पेड़ पर आश्रय करते हैं, एक फल खाता है, दूसरा केवल देखता है। पहला पक्षी हमारा व्यक्तिगत स्वयं है जो अपने कर्म से सुखों और दुखों का भोक्ता है; और दुसरा सनातन स्वयं है, जो मौन रहकर साक्षित्वरूप​ से सब कुछ देख रहा है।

It is the leg of the mother that serves as the pillar for tying the calf.

Because of this knowledge of the oneness of all beings, there is no reason for him to get disgusted with any form or to be attached to any form. He is the cosmic life in which all individual lives are included. Because of his separation from the body, the senses, and the mind, he has got full knowledge of and control over all these objective functions.

This is part of the teachings of Vedanta. Our course on Vedanta Philosophy, which was of live-sessions-only format earlier, is now available as a recorded course at just INR 499.

जो कर्तव्य है उसे अपने प्राणों की परवाह न करते हुए भी अवश्य करना चाहिये । --------------------

शुभ महावीर जयंती। On the occasion of Mahavir Jayanti, we have covered one of the most important Mantras of Jainism. The best part of this mantra is that there is no mention of any particular names of the gods or any specific person.
Instead, the Namokar mantra focuses on the guṇa (the good qualities) of the gods, teachers and the saints. It can be noted that this mantra does not ask for any favors or material benefits from the Tirthankaras or monastics.

We have created a poster and wall frame of this artwork, to purchase please click on the link in the bio or check out our story. -------------------------------
णमो अरिहंताणं । णमो सिध्दाणं । णमो आयरियाणं ।
णमो उवज्झयाणं । णमो लोए सव्वसाहुणं ।

मंगलाणं च सव्वेसिं, पढमं हवइ मंगलं ॥
-------------------------------
ṇamo arihaṃtāṇaṃ । ṇamo sidhdāṇaṃ । ṇamo āyariyāṇaṃ ।
ṇamo uvajjhayāṇaṃ । ṇamo loe savvasāhuṇaṃ ।

maṃgalāṇaṃ ca savvesiṃ, paḍhamaṃ havai maṃgalaṃ ॥
-------------------------------
I bow to the Arihantas (the perfect human beings), I bow to the Siddhhas (liberated souls), I bow to the Acharyas (masters and the heads of congregations), I bow to the Upadhyayas (spiritual teachers), I bow to all the Sadhus (spiritual practitioners) in the world. Worshiping all these five, destroys all sins and obstacles, among all that is auspicious, this mantra is the foremost.
-------------------------------
अरिहंतो को नमस्कार, सिद्धो को नमस्कार आचार्यों को नमस्कार, उपाध्यायों को नमस्कार सर्व साधुओं को नमस्कार ये पाँच परमेष्ठी हैं ।
यह पंच नमस्कार सब पापों का नाश करने वाला है । संसार में सबसे उत्तम यह मंत्र है ।
