Kaivalya (Omniscience) And The Bhagavan's Sermons

hagavan Mahavira's sermon on celibacy:

  • Control of the sexual desire is the key to the control of all kinds of attachments.
  • One who has crossed the ocean can easily cross the river.
  • Celibacy is the Eternal Religion.

In order to practise it:

    Control your speech.
      Control your eyes.
        Don't recall the past enjoyments.
          Control your food habits.

            Practise looking within the soul.
            Celibacy consists in penetrating into oneself, into the soul.
