  1. Ācārya Devasena’s Ālāpa Paddhati – The Ways of Verbal Expression   श्रीमदाचार्य देवसेन विरचित आलाप पद्धति

    Ālāpa Paddhati, composed by Ācārya Devasena (c. tenth century, Vikrama Samvat) is a Jaina text primarily on the topics of the standpoints (naya) and the secondary-standpoints (upanaya). It also delves into the substances (dravya), their qualities or attributes (guṇa), modes (paryāya), and nature (svabhāva). It is true that without appreciating the import and applicability of the individual standpoints (naya), one may get lost in the complex maze of the standpoints and cause great harm to one’s understanding, and even to one’s mental balance.
    Ālāpa Paddhati is essential reading for every serious reader of the Dravyānuyoga that spreads the light of right (scriptural) knowledge by illuminating the Reality of substances – soul (jīva) and non-soul (ajīva), merit (puṇya) and demerit (pāpa), bondage (bandha) and liberation (mokṣa), including influx (āsrava), stoppage (saṃvara), and gradual dissociation (nirjarā).
    The book has a useful Appendix that explains the doctrines of non-absolutism (anekāntavāda) and conditional predication (syādvāda).
     
    This slim volume needs to be read over and over again to internalize the underlying concepts fully.

Kalyāņamandira Stotra eulogizes the supreme attributes of Lord Pārśvanātha, the twenty-third Tīrthaṅkara. This is perhaps the most well-known adoration of Lord Pārśvanātha that is not only recited but memorized, with great devotion and reverence, by many among the Jaina community, both Digambara and Śvetāmbara.
    The worthy soul is believed to accumulate enormous propitiousness by reading Kalyāņamandira Stotra with devotion. Many claim to have benefitted miraculously from the recitation of and reflection on this sacred composition.

    Besides other useful information, the book’s Preface contains a brief life story of Lord Pārśvanātha, as expounded in the Scripture. The interesting and eye-opening sequence of the enmity carried forward by various incarnations of Kamaṭha (finally, Śambara deva) against his then-younger brother Marubhūti (finally, Lord Pārśvanātha), is also provided in a tabular form.

  4. शरीर तथा सल्लेखना का सत्यार्थ-बोध The Truth about the Body and its Dispassionate Abandonment (sallekhanā)

    This article is a compilation of excerpts from the Jaina Scripture on the subject of the human body and its dispassionate abandonment – called sallekhanā – at the end of life.
    One should consciously refrain from mistaking the body for the soul.  The transformations in the body – stages like childhood, youth, old age, and destruction – do not pertain to the soul. Death should be considered as just a change of clothes.
    By no means can the body be protected from destruction; the insistence on protecting it is futile. The body is repugnant, foul-smelling, perishable, and a source of anxiety and, therefore, it is futile to have attachment towards it.
    At the time of his death, the yogī wishes that he remains capable of uttering the letters constituting the pious name of Lord Jina. Further, he considers his soul to be one, without infatuation, pure, all-knowing, and capable of being known by the Master Ascetics. All attachments, internal and external, are utterly foreign to its nature.

  6. Ācārya Kundakunda’s Rayaṇasāra – The Quintessential Jewel आचार्य कुन्दकुन्द विरचित रयणसार

    Ācārya Kundakunda’s (circa 1st century BCE) Rayaṇasāra makes it clear that the right-faith (samyagdarśana) is the beginning as well as the culmination of the path to liberation – mokṣa-mārga. The householder (śrāvaka) must first acquire the right-faith – the Quintessential Jewel (Rayaṇasāra) – to be able to establish his Self on to the path to liberation. As he acquires the right-faith he begins to appreciate the reality of the world and the worldly-existence. He then exerts to acquire the true knowledge (jñāna) as expounded in the Doctrine (siddhānta), and adopts the laudable conduct (cāritra) by becoming a digambara-ascetic (nirgrantha muni). He ascends the spiritual-stages (guṇasthāna) and ultimately, through pure-meditation (śukla-dhyāna), attains the ineffable and eternal bliss appertaining to liberation (mokṣa).
    Ācārya Kundakunda, all through this Holy Scripture Rayaṇasāra, underscores the importance of the right-faith (samyagdarśana) for the householder (śrāvaka) as well as the ascetic (muni, śramaṇa). He asserts that in the (present) unfavourable fifth era the study – svādhyāya – of the Scripture, indeed, is meditation (dhyāna); it results in the subjugation of the five-senses (paṅcendriya) as well as of the passions (kaṣāya).

  15. Ācārya Mānatunga’s Bhaktāmara Stotra आचार्य मानतुंग विरचित भक्तामर स्तोत्र

    Bhaktāmara Stotra is the magnum opus composition of Ācārya Mānatunga (circa 7th century CE). Bhaktāmara Stotra eulogizes the supreme attributes of Lord Ādinātha, the first Tīrthaṅkara. This is perhaps the most well-known adoration of Lord Jina that is not only recited but memorized, with great devotion and reverence, by a large number of people among the Jaina community, Digambara and Śvetāmbara.
    The worthy soul is believed to accumulate enormous propitiousness by reading Bhaktāmara Stotra with devotion. Hundreds of thousands of instances, ancient and recent, must have come to light where people claimed to have benefitted miraculously by the recitation of and reflection on this sacred composition.
    This slim volume is a useful reference text for international readers. It will be of interest not only to Hindi-loving scholars but also to those looking for an authentic English rendering of Bhaktāmara Stotra. Besides the transliteration in English of the original Sanskrit verse, the meaning of each verse has been given both in Hindi and English languages. The Preface of the book contains, besides other useful information, a synopsis of the concept of empirical (vyavahāra) time (kāla), and a brief life-story of Lord Ādinātha, the first Tīrthaṅkara, as expounded in the Scripture.
     
     
    भक्तामर स्तोत्र आचार्य मानतुंग (लगभग 7वीं शताब्दी सीई) की महान कृति है। भक्तामर स्तोत्र प्रथम तीर्थंकर भगवान् आदिनाथ के सर्वोच्च गुणों की प्रशंसा करता है। जैन समुदाय, दिगंबर और श्वेतांबर, की एक बड़ी संख्या द्वारा मान्य यह भगवान जिन की सबसे प्रसिद्ध आराधनाओं में से एक है, जिसे न केवल सुना जाता है, बल्कि बड़ी भक्ति और श्रद्धा के साथ याद किया जाता है। ऐसा माना जाता है कि भव्य आत्मा द्वारा भक्ति के साथ भक्तामर स्तोत्र का पाठ करने से अपार पुण्य का संचय होता है। सैकड़ों हजारों उदाहरण, प्राचीन और हाल ही में, सामने आए होंगे जहां लोगों ने इस पवित्र रचना के पाठ और चिंतन से चमत्कारिक रूप से लाभान्वित होने का दावा किया।
    यह पुस्तक अंतरराष्ट्रीय पाठकों के लिए एक उपयोगी संदर्भ पाठ है। यह न केवल हिंदी-प्रेमी विद्वानों के लिए बल्कि भक्तामर स्तोत्र के प्रामाणिक अंग्रेजी अनुवाद की तलाश करने वालों के लिए भी रुचिकर होगी। मूल संस्कृत श्लोक के अंग्रेजी में लिप्यंतरण के अतिरिक्त प्रत्येक श्लोक का अर्थ हिन्दी और अंग्रेजी दोनों भाषाओं में दिया गया है। पुस्तक की प्रस्तावना में, अन्य उपयोगी जानकारी के अलावा, व्यवहार काल की अवधारणा का सारांश, और प्रथम तीर्थंकर भगवान आदिनाथ की संक्षिप्त जीवन-कथा, जैसा कि पवित्र शास्त्रों में व्याख्या की गई है, का समन्वय है।

    The canonical text ‘Dravyasamgraha’ is believed to have been composed either by the Most Worshipful Ācārya Nemicandra ‘Siddhānta Cakravartī’ (circa 10th century CE) – the celebrated composer of Texts like Gommatasāra, Labdhisāra, and Trilokasāra – or by his later namesake Muni Nemicandra ‘Siddāntideva’ (circa the end of 11th century CE).
    Ācārya (Muni) Nemicandra’s Dravyasamgraha consists of just 58 verses. In 116 lines of 58 verses, the author has described the six substances (dravya), five with bodily-existence (pañcāstikāya), seven realities (tattva), nine objects (padārtha), and the path to liberation (mokşa), from both the empirical (vyavahāra) as well as the transcendental (niścaya) points-of-view (naya). The treatise ends with a brief description of the five Supreme-beings (pañca-parameşthī) and of meditation (dhyāna).
    The ‘Explanatory Note’ against each verse comprises excerpts from the most authentic Sacred Jaina Texts.

    Ācārya Kundakunda’s (circa 1st century BCE) ‘Samayasāra’ is among the most profound and sacred expositions in the Jaina religious tradition; it is perhaps the finest spiritual texts that we are able to lay our hands on in the present era. The original text is in Prakrit language and contains a total of 415 verses (gāthā).
    ‘Samayasāra’ is the exposition of the Pure (śuddha) ‘Self’ or ‘Soul’. It is the exposition, from the transcendental point-of-view (niścaya naya), of the ‘Real Self’ or it is the ‘Essence of the Soul’.
    The assertions that the soul (jīva) gets bound to the karmic matter (dravya-karma) or that it does not get bound to the karmic matter are made from different points-of-view (naya). But that which transcends all points-of-view is the ultimate truth, the ‘samayasāra’, absolute and pure soul-substance.

  24. कर्म कैसे करे- मुनिश्री १०८ क्षमासागरजी

    मुनिश्री ने अपने प्रवचनों को मुख्य रूप से दो भागों में विभक्त किया है- पहले छह प्रवचनों में संसार में दृश्यमान विविधता का कारण अपने स्वयं के कार्य हैं जो अज्ञानता और आसक्ति से किए जा रहे हैं, न कि ईश्वर के द्वारा सम्पादित और संचालित हैं, जैसा कि जैनेतर सिद्धान्तों की मान्यता है, पर प्रकाश डाला है। उन्होंने ईश्वर की कल्पना का तर्कपूर्ण खण्डन किया है । इस दृश्य जगत में सभी चीजें अपने स्वभाव व गुणधर्मों के अनुसार परिणमन करती हैं। हम जैसा करते हैं, वैसा हमें फल प्राप्त होता है । इस संसार परिभ्रमण का कारण मेरी अपनी अज्ञानता और आसक्ति है।

    Foreword: Dr. Chakravarthi Nainar Devakumar
    Publisher: Vijay Kumar Jain, June 2022

    Jaina Devotions
    Description: xxxiv + 278 p. (total 312 p.) ; 24 x 17 x 2.5 cm

    Format: Book; Hard-bound
    Language Note: Sanskrit, Hindi and English
     
    Bhakti Saṃgraha or ‘Collection of Devotions’ composed by Ācārya Pūjyapāda (alias Ācārya Devanandī; circa 5th century CE) comprises a set of devotions (bhakti) in form of chaste and melodious Sanskrit hymns. Incidentally, the Most Worshipful Ācārya Kundakunda (circa 1st century BCE) had earlier composed his ‘Daśa Bhakti’ in Prākrit. The reading of devotions (bhakti) is essential to tread the difficult path to liberation. This great work by Ācārya Pūjyapāda is an essential reading for the ascetic (sādhu, muni) as well as the householder (śrāvaka). It not only helps the soul acquire merit (puņya) but, more importantly, saves it from engaging in evil tendencies and pursuits. The devotions pertain, among others, to Lord Jina, the Supreme Beings, the Scripture, the Perfect Conduct, the sacred adobes of attainment of liberation of the Arhanta, and the Nandīśvara dvīpa. This collection includes ‘Śāntyaştaka’ (hymn in praise of the sixteenth Tīrthańkara, Lord Śāntinātha).
