  • Namo Arihantanam:  I pay respect to any living human beings who has conquered his inner enemies.
  • Jai Jinendra means honour to the supreme Jina. And Jina means ..the Jin and which means the peson who is a spiritual victor.
  • The pillar of Jainism is Ahimsa or Non violence in thought and deed towards fellow human beings and other even the smallest forms of life and living.
  • Truthfulness.
  • Meditation.
  • An individual has to achieve own salvation. 
  • Salvation means termination of the cycle of birth and deaths and soul getting liberated to eternal bliss and infinite knowledge.
  • Each one has a pure soul but it is surrounded by karmic matter. The nature of Karmic matters determine the quality of a living being and thus the proportion of efforts required to liberate the soul. Karmic materail is that material which is around the soul. One is talking here not of karmas ( actions) but the karmic materials. 
  • The soul has a longing to get liberated from the karmic matter around it.
  • The Soul is a structure which consists and contains the knowledge, perceptions, bliss and energies.
  • Around the soul, there is a karmic matter consisting of very subtlest sub-atoms known karmons which float freely around the soul. Higher the amount of karmic matters around the soul, that gets it polluted by the presence of karmic subatomic particles.
