पंचम काल के १०८ जीव अगले ही भव में मोक्ष जायेंगे?

#1

एक वक्ता ने सायद कोई बहुत पुरानी मासिक पत्रिका से पढ़कर बताया था की जिन्हे अपने ऊपर full confidence होगा की मैं इसी भव में सम्यक्दर्शन प्राप्त करूंगा पर वो कर नहीं पाएंगे - ऐसे १०८ जीव अगले ही भव में विदेह छेत्र से मोक्ष जायेंगे - क्या यह सच है ?

I think this may help.

During the first 3,000 years of the Dushma Kal (i.e. from 523 BC - 2477 AD),
there would be 61 beings with auspicious thoughts (Bhadra Parinam or auspicious
soul activities) who would die with wrong belief and be reborn in the Mahavideh
Kshetra (of this Jambudvip perhaps). There (in the Mahavideh Kshetra) the time is
always like the era Dushma Sushma. These 61 beings would attain Omniscience at
the age of 9 years in their next birth and would eventually attain liberation.
Similarly, in the next 3,000 years (i.e. from 2477 - 5477 AD) there will be 31
such beings who will live with auspicious soul activities but will die with wrong
belief. They will be reborn in the Mahavideh Kshetra and will attain Omniscience at
the age of 9 years. They will eventually attain liberation.
Similarly, in the period from 5477 - 8477 AD there will be 16 such beings who will
die with wrong belief but will attain liberation in the Mahavideh Kshetra in their next
life.
During the period from 8477 - 11477 AD there will be 8 such beings who will
die with wrong belief but will attain liberation in their next life. As time passes in this
era Dushma, the number of souls with auspicious thoughts will gradually reduce
along with the decline in Dharm.
During the period from 11477 - 14477 AD, there will be 4 beings who will die
with wrong belief but will be reborn in the Mahavideh Kshetra and attain
Omniscience at the age of 9 years.
During the period from 14477 AD - 17477 AD there will be 2 beings who will
die with wrong belief but will be reborn in the Mahavideh Kshetra and attain
Omniscience at the age of 9 years.
During the period from 17477 AD - 20477 AD (i.e. in the last 3,000 years of
the Dushma era), there will be only 1 such being with auspicious thoughts who will
die with wrong belief and be reborn in the Mahavideh Kshetra to attain Omniscience
at the age of 9 and thereafter liberation at the end of his lifespan.

The total adds to 123 and not 108

Oh so total might be 123, I heard that pravchan many years ago, so may forget the exact figure. Does this information exist in any other granth as well ? Happy to see this reference :slightly_smiling_face:
