nanino saram, jam na himsai kamcana.
ceva, etavante viyaniya. (147)
It is the
essential trait of a wise man that he does not kill any living being.
Centainly, one has to understand just two principles namely non-violence
and equality (of all living beings). (147)
vi icchanti, jivium na marijjium.
ghoram, niggamtha vajjayanti nam. (148)
All the living
beings wish to live and not to die; that is why nirgranthas (persongages
devoid of attachement) prohibit the killing of living beings. (148)
pana, tasa aduva thavara.
va, na hane no vi ghayae. (149)
knowingly or unknowingly one should not kill living beings, mobile or
immobile, in this world nor should cause them to be killed by others.
Jaha te na
piam dukkham, jania emeva savvajivanam.
Savvayaramuvautto, attovammena kunasu dayam. (150)
Just as pain is
not agreeable to you, it is so with others. Knowing this principle of
equality treat other with respect and compassion. (150)
Jivavaho appavaho, jivadaya appano daya hoi.
savvajivahimsa, paricatta attkamehim. (151)
living being is killing one's own self; showing compassion to a living
being is showing compassion to oneself. He who desires his own good,
should avoid causing any harm to a living being. (151)
nama sa ceva, jam hantavvam ti mannasi.
Tumam si nama
sa ceva, jam ajjaveyavvam ti manasi. (152)
The being whom
you want to kill is the very same as you are yourself, the being whom you
want to be kept under obedience is the very same as you yourself. (152)
Ragadinamanuppao, ahimsakattam tti desiyam samae.
Tesim ce upptti,
himsetti jinehi niddittha. (153)
It is said by
Lord Jina that absence of attachment etc. is ahimsa (non-violence) while
their presence is himsa (violence). (153)
bandho, satte marejja ma tha marejja.
bandhasamaso, jivanam nicchayanayassa. (154)
intention of killing is the cause of the bondage of Karma, whether you
actually kill or not; from the real point of view, this is the nature of
the bondage of Karma. (154)
aviramanam, vahaparinamo ya hoi himsa hu.
pamatajogo, panavvavarovao niccam. (155)
from himsa or an intention to commit it, is himsa. Therefore careless
activity through passions amounts to violence (himsa). (155)
kammassa khayattha-mutthido notthido ya himsae.
ahimsattham, appamatto avadhago so. (156)
A wise person
is one who always strives to eradicate his Karmas and is not engaged in
himsa. One who firmly endeavours to remain non-violent is verily a
ahimsa, atta himsati nicchao samae.
appamatto, ahimsago himsago idaro. (157)
scriptures the self is both violent and non-violent. He who is careful is
non-violent and who is careless is violent. (157)
mandarao, agasao visalayam natthi.
jayammi janasu, dhammamahimsasamam natthi. (158)
No mountain is
higher than the Meru; nothing is more expansive than the sky; similarly
know that there si no religion equal to the religion of ahimsa in this
world why do you indulge. (158)
patthiva! tubbham, abhayadaya bhavahi ya.
jaivalogammi, kim himsae pasajjasi. (159)
being! be free from fear and you let others be free from fear. In this
transitory world, why do you indulge in himsa? (159)
