Philosophy And Exhortation

71.

Do not be in dread of the dreadful, the illness, the dis ease, the old age, and even the death or any other object of fear. (Prasnavyakarana, 7/20)

72.

The non vigilant has fear from all directions. The vigilant has none from any.
(Acaranga, 3/75)

73.

One who entertains fear finds himself lonely (and helpless).
(Prasnavyakarana, 7/20)

74.

The valiant does not tolerate indulgence, nor does he tolerate abhorrence. As he is pleased with his own self, he is not attached to anything.
(Acaranga, 2/6/160)

75.-77.

As a tortoise withdraws his limbs within his own body, even so does the valiant withdraw his mind within him­ self from all sins.
He also withdraws his hands, legs, mind, sense organs, sinful moods, evil words, pride, and deceitfulness.
This indeed is the valour of the valiant.
(Sutrakrtanga, 1/8/16-18)

78.

The enlightened should contemplate that his soul is endowed with boundless energy.
(Niyamasara, 96)

79.

Only that man can take a right decision, whose soul is not tormented by the afflictions of attachment and aversion.
(Isibhasiyam, 44/1)

80.

One who knows the spiritual (self) knows the external (world) too. He who knows the external world, knows the self also.
(Acaranga, 1/7/147)
