27. Avasyakasutra - Precepts On Obligatory Duties

 

 

Ucchaya anunnavana, avvavaham yajatta avanaya.

Avaraha-samana vi, va chatthana humti vamdana e. (430)

Obeisance is of six kinds: (1) Expression of desire for salutation; (2) to obtain the permission of his preceptor to go to any place determined by him; (3) to express a desire for completation of religious acts; (4) to go on a pilgrimage with full self-control; (5) Conquest over senses; and (6) to pray for pardon for faults committed through mistake. (430)

 

Vinaovayara manassa-bhamjana, pujana gurujanassa.

Titthayaranaya ana suyadhamma rahana kiriya. (431)

Humility is a must; it dispels pride; it amounts to worship of the preceptor and tirthankaras and it is the obedience of scriptural tenets. (431)

 

Mottuna vayanarayanam, ragadibhavavaranam kicca.

Appanam jo jhayadi, tassa du hodi tti padikammanam. (432)

A monk who meditates upon his soul after renunciation of attachment and other passions, refraining from talking about them, practises repentance in the true sense. (432)

 

Jhananilino sahu, paricagam kunai savvadosanam.

Tamha du jhanameva hi, savva'dicarassa padikkamanam. (433)

A monk who becomes absorbed in meditation renounces all faults; therefore meditation alone is real repentance for all transgressions. (433)

 

Devassiyaniyamadisu, jahuttamanena uttakalamhi.

Jinagunacimtanjutto, kausaggo tanuvisaggo. (434)

At the time of daily ceremonials etc. the renunciation of attachment for one's own body at the prescribed time, for the prescribed period and with one's mind concentrated on the virtuous qualities of Jinas this is what constitutes kayotsarga (an immobile state of body). (434)

 

Je kei uvasagga, devamanusa-tirikkha'cedaniya.

Te savve adhiase, kausagge thido samto. (435)

While performing the kayotsarga one ought to face patiently all the obstacles that might be placed in one's way by a god, a man, an animal, or by the inanimate nature. (435)

 

Mottuna sayalajappa managayasuhamasuhavaranam kicca.

Appanam jo jhayadi, paccakkhanam have tassa. (436)


He who having given up all sorts of talking about and having detached himself from all future thought activities, good and evil; meditates upon his soul, practises renunciation of future evil acts, pratyakhyana in a true sense. (436)

 

Niyabhavam na vi muccai, parabhavam neva genhae keim.

Janadi passadi savvam, so'ham idi cimtae nani. (437)

That, which never gives up its own nature, that which never assumes another one's nature, that which knows and sees everything whatsoever is `I'. Thus should be the meditation of an intelligent person. (437)

 

jam kimci me ducaritam, savvam tivihena vosire.

Samaiyam tu tiviham, karemi savvam nirayaram. (438)

Whatever evil act has been performed by me that I renounce in a three fold fashion (i.e. through mind, speech and body) and I perform samayika in a threefold fashion without any transgression. (438)
