608 jeev achieve salvation in 6 months and 8 samay. Isn’t it like a competition where there are 608 vacancies every 6 months and 8 samay? Though the irony is that if you will help your competitors, you will achieve a better rank, or go to salvation faster. What are your viewpoints on this?
Jai Jinendra, well, this is quite funny.
Yes, it does sound like a competition but it ain’t one. Jainism is very well-defined, पूर्वापर-दोष रहित, and structured set of facts and rules. So, this is merely a fact that 608 jeev will attain liberation in 6 months and 8 samay. And we should celebrate this fact.
Reasons for celebration :
We should be tension free. Agar humaara Moksha jaane ka samay aa gaya hoga, to saare nimitt swayamev banenge.
Agar Moksha Jaane ka samay nahi aaya, to jitne bhi nimitt milaane ka prayaas keejiye nahi milenge.
If this was a competition, we would not be even in the race, given our present parinaam and kriyas. So, it is good that this is not any competition.
Just my 2 cents.
