Nanam saranam me, damsanam
ca saraqnam ca cariya saranam ca.
Tava sanmjamam ca saranam,
bhagavam sarano Mahaviro. (750)
Right knowledge is my
shelter, Right Faith is my shelter, right conduct is my shelter, austerity
and self-restraint are my shelters, Bhagavan Mahavira is my shelter. (750)
abhibhuyanani, niramagamdhe dhimam thiyappa.
Anuttare savvajagamsi vijjam,
gamtha atite abhae anau. (751)
Lord Mahavira was possessed
of an all-comprehensive perception, possessed of a supreme knowledge, no
taker of an improper meal, possessed of patience, possessed of steadiness,
the supreme learned man in the world, free from all possessions, free from
fear, one not going to take another birth. (751)
Se bhuipanne anieyacari,
ohamtare dhire anantacakkhu.
Anuttare tavai surie va,
vairoyanimdeva tamam pagase. (752)
That supreme wise man lived
in no permanent dwelling, had crossed over the flood-of-transmigration, had
a limitless vision, shown in a supreme fashion as does the great Indra
Hatthisu eravanamahu nae,
siho miganam salilana gamga.
Pakkhisu va garule venudevo,
nivvanavadiniha nayaputte. (753)
Just as Airavata is supreme
among elephants, lion among animals, Gamga among rivers, Garuda-the son of
Venudeva-among birds, similarly was Jnatrputra supreme among those preaching
abhayappayanam, saccesu va anavajjam vayamti.
Tavesu va uttam bambhaceram,
loguttame samane nayaputte. (754)
Just as bestowal of
freedom-from-fear is best among donations. Speaking no harsh words is best
among truthtellings, continence is best among penances, similarly is the
monk Jnatrputra best among the people of the world. (754)
Jaganaho jagabamdhu, jayai
jagappiyamaho bhayavam. (755)
Let victory be to the Blessed
one (=Mahavira) who knows as to where the mundane souls take birth, who is a
teacher and a source of joy to the whole world, who is the lord and the
well-wisher of the universe who is like grand-father to the whole world.
Jayai suyanam pabhavo,
titthayaranam apacchimo jayai.
Jayai guru loganam, jayai
mahappa Mahaviro. (756)
Let victory be to the great
soul Mahavira who is the source of all scriptural texts, who is the last
among tirthankaras, who acts as teacher to all the world. (756)
