Hey Parmatma Parshwanath, O Parshwa Yaksh,
You are an embodiment of infinite grace, you are the destroyer of all obstacles and difficulties. I surrender myself in your Sharan and express heartfelt Vandan Bhavna to you. When a seeker experiences Oneness with the Divine, it brings his innate Divinity to life and he starts experiencing his own inner Divinity! O Parmatma, may my Vandan Bhaav have such strength that it helps me experience an unbreakable Oneness with you. Your intense Sadhna has freed you from the shackles of Karmas. Your soul glistens with such purity that no Karma can ever taint your transcendence. May my inner Purusharth, my devotion be so intense that it helps me nurture such purity within me and free me from my Karmas.
This blessed Stotra has the ability to destroy the most poisonous venom, and thus I have full faith that it will protect my soul from all the Anger (Krodh), Ego (Maan), Deceit (Maya) and Greed (Lobh), the venoms which have made my soul impure since time immemorial. It is rightly said, “You become LIKE the one whom you truly look up to, in whose Sharan you surrender your heart!” O Parmatma, I have come to your Sharan, make me worthy of residing in Your Sharan, in your heart. You are a manifestation of purity and positivity, your mere remembrance is auspicious, a blessing to every seeker! As I sing your glory, may my life be embalmed with the same purity and positivity!
This revered Stotra has the “Vish-har Mantra”, the Mantra which subdues every venom is deeply embedded in it. The seeker who weaves this Stotra in his very breath; whose every activity is underlined with the constant yet sublime remembrance of this Stotra in every passing moment, invites peace and happiness in his life. The Stotra protects such a seeker from all diseases and sorrows, and most importantly acts as a saviour of this soul from the disease of Bhav Rog (the unending cycle of birth and death cycle).
Under the positive vibrations of this Stotra, the seeker is protected from negative influences like weak planetary positions and inauspicious auras. Unfavourable influences like those caused by black magic and tantrik practices can also be overcome by the positive energy of this Mantra. Above all, this Mantra has the ability to purify your thoughts and emotions. A silent connection with this Mantra helps you become positive in your thoughts, emotions and actions, exalting your entire life with positivity.
Like a child, I may not be able to express my prayer through words, I may not know this Stotra by heart, my pronunciations may be unclear or flawed. Even then, a single bhaav of Vandana and heartfelt Pranam to you, showers upon me your infinite grace to help fulfill all my aspirations. Pranam is the bhaav where my eyelids slowly lower down in reverence, my head bows down in veneration, and my ego melts in surrenderness. This expression of deep respect (vinay) has the ability to destroy innumerable Karmas and thus paves the way for success in every field. And it is not only humans like me who have the monopoly over this beautiful Stotra. Anyone who recites this Stotra, be it humans or living beings from the animal and bird kingdom; experiences peace, happiness & well-being, and gets rid of any troubles or difficulties in their lives.
The mere recitation of this Stotra with unconditional faith has the ability to make my Soul worthy of achieving Moksh. Your Sanidhya, Your Stuti, Your Stavna is like the Chintamani gemstone and the Kalpavruksh tree. The Chintamani is an incessantly rare and precious gemstone, and at any point of time, there are thousands of Devas (celestial beings) in its service. The one who possesses this gemstone can get whatever he desires. Similarly, the Kalpavruksh is a wish-fulfilling tree. Anyone who stands under this tree and asks for something, is granted with whatever he wants. Your Stavna easily fulfills materialistic desires, but more importantly, it also has the ability to fulfill a seeker’s desire to reach the state of Ultimate Satisfaction – Moksh. The faith a seeker places in your Stavna, evolves and opens the Samyak Darshan (Right Vision) within him, and makes him capable of achieving liberation.
Your Stotra is truly Divine and magnificent, its strength is unmatched; because it helps me attain YOU, it helps me experience YOU! As I sing this beautiful Stotra, my heart elevates in devotion. The essence of this devotion lies in the fact that Your impression on my heart is indelible. There is not a single moment in my life when I fail to experience Your grace, Your Krupa! O Parshwa Jineshwar, Your child is innocent and naive. I may not understand much. I am full of ignorance. Yet, with a heart melting in devotion, I pray to you… Bless me with your Sharan, your Krupadrashti and this blessed Jin shasan in my every birth…till my last birth! O Jineshwar Parmatma, just like the ocean witnesses a strong current of waves on seeing the candescence of the moon, may my heart evolve in deep gratitude and bhakti bhaav on experiencing Your presence and dissolving in Your memories!
