Hinduism - Jainism Prayers
The Beauty of This Path:
For me, the motto of Jainism perfectly expresses the beauty of their
path: "non-violence in thoughts, words, and actions is the highest
religion." The essence of non-violence is restraint: "restraint of
mind" (thinking loving thoughts), "restraint of tongue" (saying kind
words) and "restraint of body" (doing loving actions and not doing
unloving actions). "Violence is the knot of bondage" to karma and
the only things can untie the karmic knot are "nonviolence and love"
and the desire for peace and enlightenment!
Prayer Index: Hinduism - Jainism Prayers
Lead me from Death to Life, from Falsehood to Truth.
Peace and Universal Love is the essence of the Gospel preached by
all the Enlightened Ones. The Lord has preached that equanimity is
Lord! In praying to you, I violate the restraint of tongue!
All that we ought to have thought and have not thought,
I need to be forgiven, God, so many times a day.
O love unspeakable and full of glory, whose majesty is not to destroy,
but to save, save us from ourselves. Our past relentlessly pursues us.
Days that we thought dead live over again; deeds that we deemed buried
meet us on the way, be Thou our defense, O our God! Fill up that which
our lives have left behind.
