Wishing everyone Sukh Saata during Chaitra Month Ayambil Oli. Hopefully you will find information below useful and can take advantage of listening to Navpad pravachans by Shri JinChandra Vijayji Maharaj (Bandhu Triputi).
Pujya Shri Jinchandraji Maharaj is a Jain monk and dynamic orator who travels throughout the world spreading the message of Jainism and the cultural heritage of India. Pujya Jinchandraji initiated monkhood over 55 years ago at a tender age of 8 years along with his parents, two brothers, and sister.Arihant is worshiped by the whole universe. He has twelve supreme attributes and depicted by symbolic color white. As he knows anything and everything in the universe by virtue of his Kevala Jnyana he preaches true spirituality Sitting in a Samavasharan. He also establishes Chaturvidha Sangha, the fourfold Jain Sangh. Sadhu (Monks), Sadhwi (Nuns), Shravaka (Household followers, Male) and Shravika (Household followers, female) are the constituents of this Sangha that is also called Teertha. Arihant establishes the Teertha, hence, he is also called Tirthankar.
We worship Samyag Darshan Pada in the sixth day of Navpad Oli. Samyag is a Sanskrit word that means right and Darshan means view. Hence the word Samyag Darshan means right view. It is also described as faith on preaching of Arihant. This is the sixth Pad of Siddhachakra and first of Dharma Tatva. This is the root of all Dharma (Spirituality). Dharma or Spirituality starts with the right view and perspective. One can only discern if he or she has right perspective. All knowledge is like ignorance without Samyag Darshan. This is also the first among Ratna Trayee (Three Gems) of Jainism to attain salvation. It has sixty-seven attributes and symbolizes with white color.
We perform Aayambil by eating boiled rice only. Color of Samyag Darshan is white, hence the grain chosen for Aayambil is white i.e. rice. We pray, worship and meditate for Samyag Darshan during the day.
