Kaivalya (Omniscience) And The Bhagavan's Sermons

hagavan Mahavira's sermon on truth:

  • Truth is Supreme.
  • Truth is the essence of the world.
  • Seek truth and never be inclined towards falsehood.
  • Truth is the Eternal Religion.

In order to practise truth:

  • Don't practice falsehood even through bodily actions.
  • Be straightforward and ingenuous by expressing the same feelings, which you have in your mind.
  • Speak the truth and don't tell a lie.
  • Don't be double-tongued and maintain a balance between what you say and what you do.
  • Don't be prone to anger.
  • Don't be covetous.
  • Don't be afraid.
  • Don't indulge in revelry.

Avoid falsehood at every step. Concentrate on sat (that which really is).

Truth means meditation on sat.
