There was a Brahmin ruling in some city. He was a sinister and wicked he
was keen to harass the public.
Then the protectors of
the city drove him a way from the city then as a hawk falls into the lands
of a hunter went to the residential area of the thieves.
The thieves ! leader having known him cruel like a thief accepted him as a
When the thieves leader died this brahmin having
long hands as a son occupied the leadership of thieves.
He gave cruelly blows and bears to all the beasts so people called him as
Dridh Prahaari-hard handed.
Some day he went with plan
dering thieves to rob the city named kushasthal.
Kashasthal lived a brahmin named Devasharma who was unhappy becase of
poverty once upon a time his children asked his father like a fruit less
tree foramilky item.
He wandered all village and
collected rice and milk and then prepared kheer.
Devasharma went out for bath on the river side. Meanwhile those cruel
thieves went to his place because the fate is fatal for the feeble.
One of them found kheer and like hungry ghosts taking it fled and
When the robber was robbing kheer children
began to cry out and approaching their father they complained to him.
As the wind carries away a soot from the eyes those thieves carried away
our kheer then our mouths became open.

He hit with a weapon the thieves like

leader of the thieves ! band with a single stroke of the pointed sword
killed that cow mercilessly.
Then the band leader a head
of the brahmin rushing towards him with a sword and it fell down
on the ground like a guava. He thus killed even that brahmin.
The brahmin's pragnant wife came to the band leader and balmed saying "Oh
wicked ! what did you do ?'
As a wolf bears down a belly
of goat the same way that band leader tore down her belly into two pieces.
Then the band leader saw an embry covered with a skim and trembling like a
leaf of the branch.
The band leader on seeing an embrago
trambling even after tearing a belly of the widow got dejected and took

Dradhprahari the band leader on seeing

cruelly and mercilessly killed the poor couple including an embryo Now
like fish without water can they live ?
Because of this
cruel and sinful deed certainly I have to go to the hell. I am afraid of
the sin committed by me What can be the remedy for it ? Who will save me ?
Thus thinking he got detached. Mean while he saw a monk in the park of the
city. Like a physician that monk used to remove the painful sins.
Dradh Prahari bowing to the monk said, "Maharaj ! I am such a notorious
and nasty sinister as affecting one who talks to me. A person is also
besmeared with mud if he touches a man besmeared with mud.
Even a single sin out of many sins like a brahmin murder, woman murder,
embryo killing and
a cow slaughter leads to the hell. I have mercilessly committed all the

He took two vows - I shall not eat whenever
I remember this sin and have to lerence.
That wise Dradh
prahari for the deed destroction and repentance went to his native place -
"Oh ! this is the same man who killed a
brahmin couple fraud fully, he is a nasty sinister,' commented people and
"He is the same killer of a brahmin couple,'
c cow and a baay.' Dridhprahari was barred from home entrance and stones
were thrown at him like a dog.
Everyday people used to
make him remember his sins. Then also he faced them with peaceful mind and
dropped to have his meal, because nothing is impossible for a brave man.
Dradh prahari could not take meals any day because people made him
remember his sins some in morning, some during noon and some at evening.
People used to throw mud balls, hit him sticks and fist blow's. Dradh
prahari suffered all the acts peacefully and began to think in his mind.
Oh Soul ! this is the fruit of your own deeds because as you sow the deed
you get the fruit.
These peoples are beating me with mud
balls, sticks, etc. due to this incidentally I could repent of my sinful
People were happy by hitting me with mud balls
etc and speaking bad about me and doing my contempt. The same way by
hearing peacefully peoples contempt and cruel wards without facing them I
could repent and destruct my bad deeds, that way I am also feeling happy.
Toding doing my contempt, then also people are feeling happy ! let them
experience it ! because happiness is very rarely experienced by the people
leading a worldly life.

diagonised by these people with bitter words. Thus they are my best

suffering people beating peacefully I am able to destruct my dirt.
Owing to my bad deeds I would have experienced down fall but by peoples
beating they are pulling me from down fall and pushing their souls to
downfall, So how can I get angry with them ?
Who can be
my best brother other than the people who by their fruits of righteousness
are destructing my sins ?
These people are hitting me,
tying me so my deeds of previous life are destructed I am happy because
their deeds will relieve me of my worldly life but these same deeds will
be the reason of these people infinite lives so I am feeling very sad.
To delight others many people in this world devote their wealth and
physique but these are delighted by hitting me with stones and abuses.
These people gave me many bitter words, criticising me contempt and
harassed me by hitting stones but like true brothers did not deprive of

meditating in his mind and criticising his own misdeeds he, as fire turns
the heap of grass into ashes, turned into ashes his own deeds.
Then he (Dradh Prahari) acquired fourteenth Gunsthanak named Ayogikevali
and realising a rarely eternal absolute knowledge an acquired salvation.
As Dradh Prahari with the power of his spiritual practice could avoid hell
and gained selfrealization. Other people also should doubtlessly try to
gain spiritual knowledge.
