01.01 Samyagdarshanjnānchāritāni Mokshamārgah




सम्यग्दर्शनज्ञानचारित्राणि मोक्षमार्ग:


सम्यग्दर्शन, सम्यग्ज्ञान और सम्यक्चारित्र - ये तीनों मिलकर मोक्ष के साधन हैं।


Right perception, right knowledge and right conduct constitute the path of liberation.

The path of liberation consists of three factors of right perception, right knowledge and right conduct. It does not depend upon blessing, grace or other favor of some human or superhuman authority. The emphasis is on the right approach. One should have right thinking and right conviction and he should behave in light of that conviction. In fact, one who has firm faith cannot remain without behaving in accordance with that. It becomes incumbent upon him to go ahead and develop the capability that lies within. What is needed is to have the discernment to make out what is right and what is wrong. The vigor for putting the understanding into practice is bound to follow. The right discernment is thus the basic requirement.
