35. Bhagavan Mahavira Absorbed In Sukla-Dhyana-Highest Meditation

The soul is compelled to go through the cycle of worldly existence in order to suffer the results of its own actions-good of bad. This karmic bondage of the soul is there from time immemorial. In order to attain liberation - Moska - it is essential to destroy the fourfold destructive karmans. When that is accomplished the soul attains Kevala-Jnana of Absolute Knowledge. But to attain that, one has to practice perfect self-control and absolute meditation. The path is beset with umpteen difficulties and obstacles and in order to overcome them, one must conquer all passions and be completely detached and balanced. The illustration depicts Bhagavan Mahavira absorbed in the highest type of deep meditation. The white halo and the white aura are symbolic of the highest purity.
