Reflections To Cultivate Detachment From That Which Imprisons You
Posted by: Young Jains Blog Editor In: Jain Dharma
Over the last few weeks and months in the run up to Paryushan, Heena Modi (@heenamodi) and Jigna Malde (@jiggy_malde), both active members of Young Jains, have been reflecting on what is keeping them imprisoned in states of temporary pleasure and pain, and how to become free from that.
Heena and Jigna have spent time immersing their minds in the Baar Bhavna, the twelve reflections that cultivate detachment from all that you are not, which therefore allow you to focus on what you are at your core.
Together, they have creatively captured the essence of each of the 12 Bhavnas and have used present-day examples to illustrate each reflection.
Each of the links below will lead you to individual posts at Heena’s website where each of the 12 reflections were published in the run up to and during Paryushan:
1. How do Jain scriptures explain Anitya Bhavana?
2. What does Jainism say about Asharan Bhavana?
3. How do Jain scriptures guide us about Sansar in the 12 Bhavanas?
4. What is Ekatva Bhavana?
5. What do the Jain scriptures say about Anyatva Bhavana?
6. What is the Ashuchi Bhavana all about?
7. Why is reflecting on the Asrava Bhavana so important?
