India leader to the world in field of Spirituality : Purohit

Chennai, Dec 2 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit on
Sunday said India was the leader to the World in the field of
Speaking at the 21st Mahaveer Awards for Excellence in Human
Endeavour, organised by the Bhagwan Mahaveer Foundation here,
he said the spiritual greatness of India was evidenced by the
sustainability of its civilization.
''Tolerance, mutual respect, acceptance and assimilation of
all that is good have dictated our spiritual orientation'',
he added.
He said Bhagwan Mahaveer, the 24th Thirthankara, who lived
nearly 2,600 years ago, taught to respect the voice of the soul.
Quoting Bhagwan Mahaveer, he said ''a living body is not merely
an integration of limbs and flesh, but it is the abode of the soul,
which potentially has perfect perception (Anant darshana), perfect
knowledge (Anant jnana), perfect power (Anant virya), and perfect
bliss (Anant sukha)''.
According to Mahavira, human beings were reborn, depending on
one's karma (actions) as a human, animal, element, microbe, and
other forms, on earth or in a heavenly or hellish state of existence,
Mr Purohit said.
''Nothing is permanent, everyone is reborn again based on their
karma merits and demerits. It is the Jina who have reached Kevala
Jnana, who are not reborn again, and attain the siddhaloka or the
'realm of the perfected ones', the Governor said and added that
Bhagwan Mahaveer’s message forms the very basis on which the
spiritual foundations of the country rest.
Observing that the influence of Jainism in moulding the Tamil way
of life goes back to several centuries, he said few in the audience
would know that the Tamil Classics of the Sangam era dating back
to more than 2,000 years, were influenced by Jainism.
He said 'Sivaga Sinthamani' and 'Valayapathi'--two great epics of
Tamil literary tradition--were written by Jain Monks.
