Mahavir Jayanti:Take Away His Key of Non-Violence

Falling on 13th day of waxing moon in the first Hindu month of Chaitra every year, Mahavir Jayanti marks the birthday of Lord Mahavir, the last in the galaxy of 24 Tirthankaras (prophets). The current disciples or followers flock to His shrines in Gujarat or to nearby holy places for prayers and religious rituals. However, have you ever thought who the real follower of the Lord is?

According to Param Pujya Dadashri, “A true disciple of Lord Mahavir sees decreasing numbers of faults in others. He may not completely stop seeing faults in others, but at least there is a decrease in the number of times that he does.”

When the shepherd pushed thorns into the Lord’s ears, even then who did the Lord see as guilty? The Lord saw in His Gnan that His own karma had now come into fruition, and therefore, did not see his tormentor at fault. This is the foundation behind His preaching of absolute non-violence, not to hurt any living being from mind, speech, and body.

When someone picks your pocket and you do not see him at fault, and if this vision prevails in countless other similar circumstances, know that you will achieve liberation like Lord Mahavir who managed to attain the same without binding karma through the flawless vision. This is Atma Gnan, the knowledge of Self, due to which you start to see everyone as faultless. Therefore, the real significance of celebrating Mahavir Jayanti is to make your vision flawless for others through Gnan that is possible to achieve even today.

The celebration of Pujya Niruma’s 8th Punyatithi

Pujya Niruma’s 8th Punyatithi was celebrated on a grand scale on 19 March. All of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan’s followers whether physically or virtually (joined through the online webcast) celebrated the occasion. The entire city radiated with the singing of bhakti pado(devotional songs) in the Prabhat Pheri during the early morning hours.  

Prabhat Feri

Then all the followers visited Pujya Niruma at Her memorial and recited prayers in complete harmony in Her subtle presence. 

Niruma Samadhi

Pujya Deepakbhai then gave everyone a special message for Pujya Niruma’s Punyatithi. He said that Pujya Dadashri has said that Gnanis (Self–realized Ones) never die. From one body to the next, they continue their work to ensure the salvation of the world. 

Prayers

Pujya Deepakbhai then put a garland on Pujya Dadashri and Pujya Niruma’s photo which resides at Her memorial. This was followed by arati of Lord Simandhir Swami and Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan. After prasad, there was a whole hour of Swaroop Kirtan Bhakti (devotional singing of the real Self) followed by a special CD of Pujya Niruma.

Vidhi

In the afternoon the Akram-Diksha Ceremony of Sadhaks (spiritual aspirants) going to Aptasinchan started with the launch of Audio books of Param Pujya Dadashri’s vani (speech).

Then the main event of the Samarpan Vidhi (Akram-Diksha Ceremony) started. 12 celibate boys and 15 celibate girls surrendered themselves to Param Pujya Dadashri’s cause of Jagat Kalyan (Salvation of the world) whole heartedly and a life of celibacy. The Sadhaks are joining Aptasinchan with the blessings of their parents, relatives, friends and all of Pujya Dada’s followers. Next, Pujya Deepakbhai announced the progression for the already dedicated Aptasankul members, as they take a step forward in their spiritual path 

Sadhaks

At night, there was a very heart touching bhakti session with a very nice composition of pads of Pujya Niruma, which made all the followers feel Pujya Niruma’s live presence.
