44. Virastavana Hymn To Mahavira

 

 

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)

 

Se savvadamsi 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 Vairocana. (752)

 

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 emancipation. (753)

 

Danana settham 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)

 

Jayai jagajivajoni-viyanao jagaguru jaganamdo.

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. (755)

 

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)
