Akram Youth (English)
A Tirthankar's Mind
What is a Tirthankar’s mind like? Don’t Patels stand and greet each other at events by saying ‘Ram Ram? The first person comes, he says ‘Ram Ram’ and moves on. The second person comes, he says ‘Ram Ram’ and moves on. Not a single thought stands still, not even for a moment. A thought comes and goes, then another comes and goes, but it does not stop even for a moment.
Lord Mahavir also had a mind, but what was that mind like? Isn’t there a minute hand in this clock as well as a second hand? There is also a hand that counts the smallest fraction of time. Just as this hand moves, so does Lord Mahavir’s mind. It never stops.
