The Meaning and Explanation of the Sixth Lesson
The procedure of accepting the vow of Samayik and its duration is explained in this lesson. One Samayik is of two ghadis i.e. one hour. In this way we should take the permission of Dharma Guru if present or the permission of Shree Simandhar Swami (staying in Panch Mahavideha Kshetra) in the absence of the Dharma Guru for the duration of Samayik. The behaviour during Samayik is also well explained.
During Samayik, we exclude ourselves mentally, verbally and physically from all the sins by not doing them ourself and by not asking others to do them. Also, we do not feel fit verbally and physically the others doing sins.
We should remain in the undisturbed peace of religious meditation and try to change the attitude of souls from sins.
