Bhavana means contemplation, reflection. One should entertain and expand auspicious and useful thoughts. One should not allow one’s soul to get entangled in the various events taking place around oneself. In the Jain Dharma sixteen kinds of Bhavanas are mentioned, and they enable people to attain mental peace and tranquillity. In short, we can avoid the influx of bad Karmas & live peacefully in this worldly life by developing friendship with all living beings, admiring their success, holding their hands when they are in distress, & leaving them alone at the times when they do not understand what is right or wrong. “So until it becomes the natural way of life to observe the above Bhavanas, one should contemplate on them as many times as needed. If there is a goal, only then there is an achievement.”
Saras. Good for everyone.
