JCM 2019 Education Committee Proudly Announce
Jain Swadhyay (Panel Discussion)
“Jain Philosophy – Six Essentials (Avashyaka)“
Date: February 17, 2019 (Sunday)Time:
Venue: Hindu Mandir Auditorium, Maple Grove
What are “Six Essentials (Ävashyaka)”?
The soul, in its pure form, has infinite perception, infinite knowledge, infinite vigor, and infinite bliss. These attributes are not realised by a worldly soul because it is smeared with karmas. The karmas are mainly due to four passions (Kashäya); anger, ego, deceit and greed.
Tirthankars have expounded on many ways to free us from these four Kashäya to attain Moksha. One of the ways is a daily practice of six Ävashyaka (essentials). Practicing six essential rites with true faith helps us progress spiritually. These six essential rites are to be practiced daily.
