OBEISANCE TO THE VIRTUOUS
Monks (Sadhus) and Nuns (Sadhvies)
I offer respect to all those monks and nuns, who go around with the permission of their superiors and follow the principles laid down for them by passionless Lord Arihants and Siddhas.
They are my religious teachers, perceptors and preachers, conferrers of true faith and knowledge, the ornaments of path of Jainism, and are worthy of many titles.
I offer obeisance to them now, and again and again, and let it reach wherever they may be.
