Significance of Deepawali in Jainism


Dr.M.C. JainNATIONAL PRESIDENT
Rashtriya Digamber Jain Parishad


“दीपकं तद्यदन्येषामपि सम्यक्त्व दीपकम्”
आचार्य हेमचन्द्र कृत त्रिषष्ठीशलाकापुरुषचरित्रम् १।३।६१०

दीपक वह है जो दूसरों को सम्यक् दर्शन प्रदान करे।
(A lamp is that which illumines samyak darshana in others.)
Acharya Hemacandra in Trishashthishalakapurushacaritram 1.3.610

The word "Diwali" is a corruption of the Sanskrit word "Deepavali" (also transliterated as "Dipavali"). Deepa/dipa means "light of the dharma", and avali means "a continuous line". The more literal translation is "rows of clay lamps". Diwali is one of the most popular and colorful festivals in India. Better known as Deepavali or the festival of lights, Diwali is a nocturnal celebration embraced by Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains across the country. It unifies every religion, every home, and every heart and India transcends into a land of myriad lamps.

In Hinduism, Diwali marks the return of Lord Rama to his kingdom of Ayodhya (अयोध्या ) after defeating (the demon king) Ravana,( रावण ) , the ruler of Lanka (लंका )in the epic Ramayana.( रामायण ). It also celebrates the slaying of the demon king Narakasura (नरकासुर ) by Lord Krishna. (कृष्णा ) . Both signify the victory of good over evil. In Jainism, Diwali marks the attainment of moksha (मोक्ष ) by Mahavira ( महावीर ) in 527 BC.. In Sikhism, Diwali commemorates the return of Guru Har Gobind Ji (गुरु हरगोविंद जी ) to Amritsar after freeing 52 Hindu kings imprisoned in Fort Gwalior by Emperor Jahangir (जहाँगीर ) ; the people lit candles and divas (दीप ) to celebrate his return.

Mythological significance of Diwali in Jainism
Diwali is originally stated in Jain books as the date of the nirvana of Lord Mahavira. The earliest use of the word Diwalior Dipavali appears in Harivamsha Puran ( हरवंश पुराण ) , a Holy Book of Jains , composed by Acharya Jinasena ( आचार्य जिन सेन ) , written in Shaka Samvat (शक -संवत ) 705. In Jainism, Diwali was first referred in Harivamsha Purana written by Acharya Jinasena as dipalika (splendour of lamps). In his words “the gods illuminated Pavagari by lamps to mark the occasion” Since that time, the people of Bharat ( भारत ) celebrate the famous festival of Dipalika to worship the Jinendra (i.e. Lord Mahavira) on the occasion of his nirvana ( निर्वाण ). 

कत्तिय-किण्हे चौदसिपच्चुसे सादिणामनक्खत्ते|
पवाए णयरिये एक्को विरेसरो सिद्धो ||

Diwali has a very special significance in Jainism, just like Buddha Purnima, the date of Buddha's Nirvana, is for Buddhists and Christmas is for Christians. Diwali in Jainism is the jubilation to commemorate the salvation or Moksha attained the founder and guru Lord.

Mahavira. On the religious occasion of Diwali on Oct. 15, 527 BCE, on Chaturdashi of Kartika in Pavapuri, Lord Mahavira received his enlightenment to spirituality. He could conquer his desires and was beyond humanity. On this auspicious day his life was transformed into a spiritual journey of self penance and sacrifice.Jain scriptures also mention that one of the ardent disciples of Mahavira, Gandhara Gautam Swami attained complete knowledge kevalgyana ( केवलज्ञान ) on this day thus making Diwali one of the most important Jain festivals. According to the Kalpasutra by Acharya Bhadrabahu, 3rd century BC, many gods were present, illuminating the darkness. The following night was pitch black without the light of the gods or the moon. To symbolically keep the light of their master's knowledge alive.

Deepavali was first mentioned in Jain books as the date of the nirvana of Lord Mahavira. In fact, the oldest reference to Diwali is a related word, dipalikaya or deepalikaya, which occurs in Harivamsha-Purana, written by Acharya Jinasena and composed in the Shaka Samvat era in the year 705.

ततस्तुः लोकः प्रतिवर्षमादरत् प्रसिद्धदीपलिकयात्र भारते |
समुद्यतः पूजयितुं जिनेश्वरं जिनेन्द्र-निर्वाण विभूति-भक्तिभाक् |२० |

Which means, the gods illuminated Pavanagari (पवागिरी ) by lamps to mark the occasion. Since that time, the people of Bharat celebrate the famous festival of "Dipalika" to worship the Jinendra (i.e. Lord Mahavira) on the occasion of his nirvana.

Rituals in the celebration:
Diwali to Jains, is the occasion to pay tribute to the ardent sacrifice of their Lord Mahavira. The Swetambara faction of Jains observes fasting during the three days of Diwali. The festival usually falls in the month of Kartik (October-November).The devotees sing and chant hymns in praise of their Lord . They recite phrases from the Uttaradhyayan Sutra (holy book of Jains) which contains the last preaching's of Lord Mahavira.

Unique way of celebration:
Jains as a religion gives more stress on austerity and simplicity. Unlike other religious practices in India, who celebrate Diwali with lots of fire crackers, noise, songs and dances, Jainism follows a different form of celebration altogether. To them, physical triumph and pomp are just worldly emotions of joy and gratification. So they practise penance during the period. The temples are decorated during this period and there is distribution of sweets among the devotees. Jains from India and all over the world visit Pavapuri, the home town of Mahavira.

“May this Dipavali illumine your soul with Samyak Darshana”

Wishing all of you a Very HAPPY DIWALI​

May each moment of the rest of your life be filled with equanimity and serenity
May you follow the path of spiritual bliss and may the splendor of your 
Soul always lights your path and lead the way.

Best wishes on Diwali and New Year.

Happy Dhanteras to all members & readers


Happy Birthday- Simi Garewal

कुपोषण और भूख मुक्त भारत के निर्माण हेत सभी देशवासियों से आगे आने का आहृवान: दयानंद वत्स

आदर्श ग्रामीण समाज के तत्वावधान में आज उत्तर पश्चिम दिल्ली के बरवाला गांव में विश्व खाद्य दिवस के अवसर पर समाज के राष्ट्रीय उपाध्यक्ष दयानंद वत्स की अध्यक्षता में भूख और कुपोषण मुक्त भारत विषयक एक सार्थक परिचर्चा का आयोजन किया गया। अपने संबोधन में श्री वत्स ने कहा कि आजादी के 70 सालों के बाद भी खाद्य सुरक्षा ओर भूख एवं कुपोषण मुक्त भारत की कल्पना आज भी एक दिवास्वप्न बनकर रह गयी है। खाद्य सूचकांक के आंकड़े भी भारत के लोगों के लिए सुखद नहीं हैं।

एक और देश के करोडों बच्चे कुपोषित हैं और शिशु मृत्यु दर बढने से स्थिति की भयावहता का अंदाजा सहज ही हो जाता है। उत्सवों के अवसरों पर हजारों टन भोजन भारत में भूखों के पेट की बजाय कूडे में चला जाता है। खाद्य पदार्थों की बरबादी पर हमें तनिक भी दुख नहीं होता। इसलिए इस विश्व खाद्य दिवस पर हमें भोजन की बरबादी रोकने के लिए राष्ट्र व्यापी जन जागरूकता अभियान चलाने की महती आवश्यकता है। श्री वत्स ने कुपोषण ओर भूख मुक्त भारत के निर्माण के लिए सभी देश वासियों से आगे आने का आहृवान किया है।

FIFA U-17 World Cup celebrated World Food Day with Feeding India


World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on 16 October to promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all.

Minimising food waste being one of the sustainability initiatives of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the tournament has teamed up with Feeding India, the country’s largest youth-run, not-for-profit organisation with more than 7,500 volunteers in over 55 cities, which strives to alleviate the problem of hunger, malnutrition and food waste in India. Feeding India volunteers, called “Hunger Heroes”, are also part of the team of volunteers for the FIFA U-17 World Cup, and are helping to donate leftover food at all six tournament venues to shelter homes. The food is initially checked for its quality before being transported in special containers to beneficiaries in the homes.

On 16 October, to celebrate World Food Day, FIFA and the LOC organised a very special event for 70 girls at a Feeding India shelter home in Delhi. The kids were busy playing indoor games and drawing, completely unaware of the surprise waiting for them on the veranda, when all of a sudden, Kheleo, the highly popular Official Mascot for the tournament, walked in with some Hunger Heroes carrying delicious food. After the tasty morsels had been handed out, Kheleo unveiled the main surprise of the day by distributing footballs to the 70 girls.

The kids had no inkling of what was awaiting them. Palak Gupta, caretaker at the shelter home, said: “We have seen India playing in the FIFA U-17 World Cup matches on TV and it has got the kids really interested in football. I am sure they can’t wait to play the beautiful game with the balls they have received.”

In the short space of time since its foundation, Feeding India has served 9 million meals to children, women, senior citizens and disabled people, and has initiated World Food Week, a movement that aims to put a stop to the massive food waste in India and to use this excess nutritious high-quality food to fight hunger by feeding people in need.
