    ‘‘सल्लेखना, यानी

    काय और कषाय को

    कृश करना होता है, बेटा!

    काया को कृश करने से

    कषाय का दम घुटता है,

    ...घुटना ही चाहिए।

     

    और,

    काया को मिटाना नहीं,

    मिटती-काया में

    मिलती-माया में

    म्लान-मुखी और मुदित-मुखी

    नहीं होना ही

     

    सही सल्लेखना है, अन्यथा

    आत्मा का धन लुटता है, बेटा!

     

    वातानुकूलता हो या न हो।

    बातानुकूलता हो या न हो।

    सुख या दु:ख के लाभ में भी

    भला छुपा हुआ रहता है,

    देखने से दिखता है समता की आँखों से,

    लाभ शब्द ही स्वयं

    विलोम रूप से कह रहा है

    ला...भ...भ...ला...!

     

    अन्त-अन्त में

    यही कहना है बेटा!

    कि

    अपने जीवन-काल में

    छली मछलियों-सी  

    छली नहीं बनना

    विषयों की लहरों में

    भूल कर भी

    मत चली बनना।

     

    ‘Sallekhanā’, that is,

    One has to reduce, dear child !

    The body as well as the foul passions,

    By weakening the body

    The foul passions stop breathing,

    ...It ought to be so.

     

    And,

    Not by making the body perish,

    But in the withering away of body

    In the gaining of worldly objects

    Neither getting saddened

    Nor getting gladdened

    Is the genuine Sallekhanā’

    Supreme Renunciation - otherwise,

    The wealth of Soul is plundered, dear child !

     

    Whether air-comfort is at hand or not

    Whether regard to discourse is observed or not,

    There is found some goodness hidden

    Into the gain of pleasure or pain

    It can be seen, if desired, through the eyes of equanimity

    The word ‘Lābha’ in itself

    Is signifying in an inverse manner -

    Lā...bha...bha...lā...,

     

    Ultimately,

    I have to say only this thing, dear child !

    That

    You shouldn't be the victim of any fraud

    Like the fish

    Who were deceived in their life-time,

    Even by mistake

    You shouldn't be swept away

    Into the waves of sensuous pleasures.
