T he soul and the body are mixed up like milk and water. Each exists distinct from the other. They are not one. Wealth, home, son, wife, obviously exist separately. How can they be one?

Chha Dhala, 5/7 





O ne is himself alone affected by the consequences of his good and bad Karmas. Neither son nor wife share therein. All are influenced by self-interest.

Chha Dhala, 5/1 





H e does not through carelessness cause injury to water, earth, vegetable, fire, nor does he secure an obligation by supplying a sword, a bow, a plough and other instruments of destruction. He never listens to narrations, which excite feelings of attachment of aversion. He does not indulge in other acts which cause purposeless sins.




Jainism Quote n°6338 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/15 





W ithin these limits he further limits his activities to a village, a lane, a house, a garden, market, and thus avoids all the rest. He is not anxious over anybody’s financial loss, or failure or success. He offers no advice in respect of such matters. Commerce and agriculture also lead to sin.




Jainism Quote n°6337 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/14 





H e does not take anything, except water and earth, which has not been given to him. He remains unattached to all females except his wife. Keeping in view his circumstances, he limits his possessions. He also limits his movements in the ten directions; and does not transgress such limits.




Jainism Quote n°6336 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/13

Jainism Quote n°6335 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/12 





O Brother! Do not feel elated or grieved by the fruits of good or evil Karmas. These are modifications of matter. They come into being, they vanish, they are not permanent. Out of a million talks, keep this truth in your mind. Break off all trammels of the world, and concentrate your attention on the SELF.




Jainism Quote n°6334 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/11 





T he terrible fire of sense - desires burns up men and forests in the world. The only means of extinguishing it is the heavy rainfall of knowledge.




Jainism Quote n°6333 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/10 





T he saints have said that it is due to the potency of right knowledge that persons attained liberation in the past, attain it now and will attain it in the future.




Jainism Quote n°6332 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/9 





W ealth, society, elephants, horses and kingdom, are of no use. If a knowledge of the reality of the SELF is obtained, it will remain unshaken. Such knowledge arises from a discrimination between Self and non-Self. O thou, worthy of liberation! Try to acquire that knowledge even by millions of efforts.




Jainism Quote n°6331 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/8 





T herefore study the realities propounded by Jina-vara; get rid of doubt, delusion and stupefaction, visualise your ownself. If this human condition of existence, good family, Jaina religious discourses are lost, they will not, like a precious gem lost in the ocean, be found again.




Jainism Quote n°6330 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/7 





A soul may attain, for an infinite number of times, the (high celestialregion) graiveyak, by adopting the vows of an ascetic; but without a knowledge, of the SELF, it never enjoys a little bit of bliss.




Jainism Quote n°6329 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/6 





A person with right knowledge gets rid, in a moment, by control of mind, speech and body, of such Karmas as one without knowledge can shed by ascetic practices in millions of lives.




Jainism Quote n°6328 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/5 





T he Omniscient Lord simultaneously knows clearly the infinite attributes and infinite modifications of all substances. There is nothing so conducive to happiness as Right-knowledge. Here is the supreme nectar which cures diseases of birth, old-age and death.




Jainism Quote n°6327 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/4 





I t (knowledge) is of two kinds - direct and indirect. Sensitive (Mati) and Scriptural (Sruta) knowledge are indirect (Paroksha), they arise through the senses and the mind; the Visual (Avadhi) and Mental (Manahparyaya) knowledge are partially direct (Desha-pratyaksha). With limitations of substances and space, such knowledge is clear.




Jainism Quote n°6326 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/3 





R ight knowledge manifests itself along with right-belief. They are (however) distinct from each other. Their distinctive features, beyond dispute, are faith and enlightenment. Though simultaneously produced, right belief is the cause and right knowledge the effect. Light illumines itself and the lamp simultaneously, still the light proceeds from the Lamp.




Jainism Quote n°6325 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/2 





A fter having acquired right belief, pay homage to right knowledge which like the sun illuminates the self and the non-self, with their manifold attributes.




Jainism Quote n°6324 | 
Chha Dhala, 4/1 





T he good man who is adorned with Right-Faith, unblemished and correct, is revered ever by the lords of the celestials, although he observes no vows because of weakness of action. He is a householder but is not attached to the house. (He is as unattached) as a lotus is unattached to the water. His affection is (outward) like that of a courtesan. He remains pure like gold in mire.




Jainism Quote n°6323 | 
Chha Dhala, 3/15 





L ove a true believer as a cow loves her calf. Spread the glory of Jainism. Ever keep away from the eight defects which are contradictions (of the above eight virtues). Do not be proud if your father or mother’s brother is a king. Do not be proud of beauty or knowledge. Destroy the pride of riches or strength. He who knows the Self, is not proud of ascetic practices, or high position. These are the phases of pride, eight defects of Right belief. Do not praise the followers of bad teachers, bad gods, and bad religions. Do not offer prostration to any except Jina, Jaina Saints and Jaina Scripture.




Jainism Quote n°6322 | 
Chha Dhala, 3/13 & 14 





H ave no doubts in the word of Jina. Do not practise religion for secular comforts. Do not feel disgust at the untidy body of an ascetic. Discriminate between the right and wrong principles. Conceal your virtues and the defects of others. Develop your own virtues, support yourself and others, when deviating from piety, by force of carnal inclinations and the like.




Jainism Quote n°6321 | 
Chha Dhala, 3/12 





T he faith that the Self is distinct from other objects is Right-Belief. Knowledge of the real nature of the Self is knowledge. A firm stand on that basis is Conduct. Now listen about the practical path of Liberation which leads to the Direct Path.




Jainism Quote n°6320 | 
Chha Dhala, 3/2 





B liss is the quest of the Soul. It consists in the absence of worry. There is no worry in Moksha (Liberation). Therefore follow the way to Liberation, which is Right belief, Right knowledge and Right conduct. The path is two-fold. The Right path is known as Nishchaya (direct) the other called Vyavahara (indirect) leads to it.
