Six  Major Vows

Eighteen Types of Sin

 

Make it the six major vows

maha= major

vrat=vows

These are

ahimsa= nonviolence

achourya= nonstealing

apraigraha=non-acquisitiveness

satya=truth,   asatya= lies

brahmacharya= celibacy     abrahmacharya=sexuality in thoughts, speech and words

+

sixth one

ratri=night   bhojan=meal

eating after dark

not to eat after dark

These are the traditional major vows of the monks of Jain religion, but

by being 

I am pure Soul...all are covered.

 

This is well expalined in the book

http://www.dadashri.org/aptavanitwo.pdf

search under

mahavrat and anuvrat

or major vows

not for the meaning but how Dadashri comes up with a totally new vision and meaning of these words, which the traditional jains even, are unaware of.

Now the 18 sin locations --paap sthanaks are the following...

hasya= laughter (jest that hurts others)

rati=pleasure seeking, sexual activity, attachment

arati=aversion, absence of pleasure

obstructions of 5 types:

    labh=to profit

    bhog=to enjoyment

    upbhog=to enjoy that which is beyond enjoyment

    daan=to charity

    virya=to energy expression

shok=grief

bhaya=fear

juguptsa= turning away, inability to look at that which is unpleasant

mithyatva= wrong vision and belief

agnan=ignorance

apratyakhyan=indecision about repeating the error

raag=attachment

dwesh=abhorrence

nindra=sleep

kaam=sexuality

 

rati, arati; 5 antaraya-obstructions: daan labh, bhog, upbhog, virya;  bhay, shok, juguptsa, mithyatva, agnan, apratyakhyan, raag, dwesh, nindra and kaam

All of these are covered for the one who  follows the Agnas. All these encompass subtle deviation--vikaar from the Self.

These are offered here because there have been many inquiries from those who follow the Charan Vidhi.

Jai Sat Chit Anand,

Shuddha
