Jainism is designed for the Decaying Ages

Jain Philosophy has been developed as such, because of reasons like people not getting materialistically content with the simple life around 2000 B.C , migration of other tribes bringing violence, and that Jain philosophy evolved as a way to survive and remain blissful in the Decaying Ages of Time that was to take over the world, which the Jain monks could foresee. Due to the decaying times, higher consciousness values keeps getting lost by humans and dark traits of human nature come out, bringing to a state of more violence and deceit, which is where the importance of Jain values of Ahimsa (Non – violence), Anekantavada (Multiplicity of viewpoints) and Karma shines.

One reason for the white cloth on the mouth, is to remember so as to not to speak harshly, and to remain silent than to provoke violence. The White dress code for monks symbolizes peace.

Mastering Detachment is the key to bliss and sanity in the decaying ages. Jain monk’s renunciations serve as message and a reminder of the importance of Detachment to Jain laymen, and not to get lost in the worldly life of the decaying times.

The below is a collection of music and videos that showcases the philosophy of Jainism – the message of renunciation and ascetism which leads to the breaking of all bondage to the worldly existence – permanent detachment to all people, place and material wealth. Diksha ceremony is the ceremony of a Jain layman becoming a monk – who have given up on worldly life and are on the path of seeking Moksha – the end of cycle of birth and death.

A growing number of Dikshas have taken place in recent times, the reasons suspected to be – growing disenchantment among the millennials with the life of the modern world, internet allowing access to information on Jainism and English translations of Jain scriptures that the young can easily understand.

Absorbing wisdom of Jain consciousness helps with living a better life –

  • A spiritual man is a man grounded in reality. He has shed all the ignorance.
  • Wealth starts having a negative effect beyond a point. Billionaires don’t live a better life than a double digit multi millionaire.
  • The things you own, reverse own you back. Limit possessions.
  • Anger is a wrong emotion to hold which is too destructive for even one’s own soul. Anger is the result of not being able accept the reality of a situation and operating the mind from an emotional state deficient of logic. Always have firm control over Anger.
  • If someone fear’s committing sin,  because of the fear of the wrath of God or believing that Karma will harm later; then that person’s innate nature is evil.
  • One’s happiness and sadness is the result of one’s Karmic actions.
  • Always content state of existence would have have brought limited to no desire, which in turn would have resulted in no suffering, thereby creating a permanent blissful state of existence, whose downside would have been that no spiritual awakening could have take place in humans.
  • Feel the suffering and then learn to be detached.
  • Practice detachment. There is perhaps no bigger way to improve one’s life than by practicing detachment.
  • Keeping the mind in the past kills, even when remembering the good old days. Why ? Because nostalgia is a strong attachment, and as I have theorized and explained that attachment is suffering. DETACHMENT is liberation from suffering.
  • DETACHMENT is the key to sanity in modernity.
  • Poverty is a shackle made of Iron. Wealth is a shackle made of Gold. Both will not lead one towards true freedom. DETACHMENT to worldly existence is liberation.
  • Don’t get sucked completely in the worldly life, which is an illusion that fools us into thinking it is all.
  • Once the mind gets sucked in solely pursuing worldly gains, various negative emotions like envy, anger and violence start having a stronger presence in the thought process. DETACHMENT is the key to controlling these emotions.
  • Choose between DETACHMENT and an early death.
  • Practice DETACHMENT to your possessions, your location and even your loved ones. This will free your soul and take you to a higher spiritual state, giving you peace and liberation from suffering.
  • Detachment to worldly existence is necessary. But, Love is an intense attachment. So be detached to the world first, and then at the same time be completely attached to your Loved ones. It seems contradictory, but it does not have to be in practice.
  • Renunciation and Detachment is the pathway to the highest consciousness.
  • Anyone who is able to break the bondage to worldly existence, becomes god like in character.
  • Attachment to the world accumulates bad Karma points. Detachment to the world accumulates good Karma points.
  • Life is to be lived to the fullest. Never forget. Being spiritually detachment to existence, does not mean loosing the zest for life.
  • Live seriously without the seriousness.
  • The world can go to hell, yet don’t lose your inner peace.
  • It feels good when living under ignorance, until comes the greater pain of reality to be faced. So better to embrace reality as harsh as it maybe, and then learning to be detached to it. You are aware of everything but then you are indifferent.
  • The ideologically possessed person will self destruct but will not give up on the ideology captured.
  • The awakening is the realization of the temporal nature of existence, and this awakening takes the soul to a higher state to introspect further, till a complete enlightenment state is reached.
  • Enjoy the journey of life. Each day is to be lived with maximum joy. Life is today and right now.
  • All ideologies are a particular state of consciousness. Jainism is the highest state of consciousness.
  • Dogmas should not be allowed to build. Question everything. Criticize everything.
  • While IQ and Consciousness are not the same, a Higher IQ allows for Higher Consciousness.
  • Conservatism and Liberalism are both modes of reproduction. Ascetism is the renunciation of reproduction and the end of suffering.
  • When there is only degeneracy left in the culture, it takes nothing to become a degenerate and takes everything not to be one.
  • A liberal mindset operates from a lower consciousness which brings in suffering. Liberalism drags the mind into lower consciousness but the right decisions come from a state of higher consciousness.
  • There are period of happiness and sadness in everyone’s life. Both are temporary and comes from being in a state of ignorance; the ignorance of forgetting the temporary nature of life. Seek detachment and the bliss will last the entire life.
  • Limit consumerism and hedonism
  • Desire is the cause of suffering. Renunciation of desire is the end of suffering.
  • Trust Karma and let go of negative emotions.
  • Virtue satisfies the soul as it raises the consciousness, Vice destroys the soul as it lowers the consciousness
  • All the decisions made in the past which were grounded in logic + higher consciousness state, where the right decisions made.
  • The longer the time spent in ignorance, the worst the pain of reality to be faced.
  • Chase success passionately with a dispassionate disposition.
  • Anger is a wrong emotion to hold which is too destructive for even one’s own soul. Anger is the result of not being able accept the reality of a situation and operating the mind from an emotional state deficient of logic. Always have firm control over Anger.
  • The things you own, reverse own you back. Limit possessions.
