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.
This is the second post of Navpad and is posted in the top of Siddhachakra Yantra. It is also considered as one of the Deva Tatva.
Siddha is free from all Karmic bondage and has no reason to live as a mundane soul. Hence, there is no reincarnation. He lives forever above the Siddha Shila at the top of the Universe. He has eight supreme attributes and is depicted by the symbolic color red.
We worship Siddha Pada in Shukla Astami, the second day of Navpad Oli. We perform Aayambil by eating boiled wheat only. Color of Siddha is red, hence the grain chosen for Aayambil is red i.e. wheat. We pray, worship and meditate for Siddha during the day.
