Mahavir JayantišŸŒø

Those who are ignorant of the supreme purpose of life will never be able to attain nirvana (liberation) in spite of their observance of the Vratas (vows) and Niyamas (Rules) of religious conduct and practice of shila (celibacy) and tapas (penance). [SAMAYASARA, 153)

Don’t be proud if you gain. Nor be sorry if you lose. [ACARANGA SUTRA]

A living body is not merely an integration of limbs and flesh but it is the abode of the soul which potentially has perfect perception, perfect knowledge, perfect power and perfect bliss… Have compassion towards all living beings. Hatred leads to destruction. Respect for all living beings is non-violence… [MAHAVIRA]
