Translation:

“The essence of Jain Shashan is following Equanimity - Yuvacharya Mahashraman”

Yuvacharya shree Mahashraman ji while giving his regular discourse in the bright morning of 27th said that practicing equanimity (Samta) is Dharma while practicing disparity (inequality) is an activity of Adharma. Theory of Equanimity holds equal importance for both Monks and householders. Acharya Shree Tulsi under Shravak Pratikaman has mentioned at one place that practising tolerance in the life is the conclusion of Jainism and even Arhant Vandna mentions “Samaya Dhamm Mudahare Muni” i.e. tolerance is the practise of good persons.. Lord has told that Samta is dharma and the reason that saints stay in a blissful state is because they practice tolerance in each of their activities vigilantly.

In Bhagwad Geeta’s 12th chapter - Shree Krishna mentions that he likes those disciples who follows equanimious approach, handles the situations in the same calm way if it is pertaining to a friend or for an enemy, tolerates cold and hot weathers with the same approach and keeps himself away from all worldly desires. All these good signs can be seen in supreme people who follows high values in life spiritually or Ideal people who does good deeds and are known well for the same. We should practice such an approach, as happiness and misery are both based on the previous Karma’s of the person. Other people can be the instrumental and effective in becoming a reason for happiness or misery but the root cause for occurrence of such fruits is due to bondage of previous Karma. There was a time when Mahatma Buddha got his feet severely hurt, this was primarily because in his past lives he agonised someone deeply. Therefore it is advised that one should practice equanimious approach in this mundane world even in the state of appreciation or disrespect.

Yuvacharya Shree also recited “Bhikshu Jash Rasayan” which was written by 4rth Acharya Jayacharya. This reiterates lots of scenes of Acharya Bhikshu life and describes Tatva Mimasa sutras as well.
