After studying the first study called Pap-Vipak, God Veer Prabhu started the second study. In the Bharata region of this Jambudweep there was a town called Vyaparigram. The people of this city were very prosperous and lived in skyscrapers. Everyone had a treasure of wealth and food. Everyone was happy.
The king’s name was Mitra. He was very brave and mighty. He had many queens. The Queen’s name was Shri. Shri Rani was not only beautiful but was also modest and virtuous. In the same city, Vijayamitra used to live. His wife’s name was Subhadra. Subhadra was beautiful. While enjoying worldly pleasures, Subhadra gave a birth to a good looking Son, named – Ujjhitak.
Once upon a time. We (Vardhamana Swami) while visiting the Vihara visited a garden called Duteepalash, located in the northeast of the Vanijyagram. In one corner of the garden was the Yakshayatana (temple) of Sudharma Yaksha. Here the deities composed the embellishment. The kings along with the people also came to listen to the sermon and everyone was pleased to hear it.
Midday was the time of alms. After receiving my permission, Indrabhuti Gautam, who did the penance of Chhata (2 upwas) , went out to take alms. On the way, he saw strange scenes. On the highway, contingents of elephants, horses and soldiers were seen ready for any fierce battle.
When Gautama moved forward, a strange man appeared among those soldiers. His nose and ears were severed. Hands were tied backwards. There was a garland of red flowers around his neck. The whole body was smeared with oil and the powder of ocher was added. That person was very afraid. The indomitable craving to live was visible in his eyes. The elders appointed by the king were constantly mutilating him and throwing small pieces of his body in front of him and throwing them on the highway in front of him, which were being eaten by birds like eagles and crows.
As this pain was incomplete, hundreds of people were beating him with stones and whips. In such a situation, he was surrounded by thousands of people, was being taken in the streets of the city. At each crossroad, the announcement was made by the announcer – “O citizens! King Or Prince are not responsible for this plight of Ujjhitaka. It is sad because of the deeds done by ourselves.
Gautam’s mind got overwhelmed after seeing this scene. There was a thought in his psyche that this man is experiencing so much anguish.
Gautam returned after receiving alms from Vyapargram, his mind was furious. They were thinking what such deeds this man has done, which is suffering so much? Gautam asked me, “O God! Today, a man who has experienced the pangs of hell, what kind of karma led to this odd condition from which he is suffering ?
To address the question I described his earlier life precisely. There was a city called Hastinapur in the Bharat region of the Jambudweep. It’s king was Sunand. Sunand’s greatness was as amazing and unshakable as that of the Himalayan Mountains. In the central part of this city, there was a huge gaushala with hundreds of columns. It was beautiful and pleasing to the mind. Thousands of cows, buffaloes, calves and bulls lived in this cowshed. There was a good arrangement of grass and water for their fodder.
Animals did not have any kind of fear in this gaushala. There was no possibility of any disturbance. All kinds of facilities for animals were available there. The biggest feature of this Gaushala was that the animals of the people used to come here, as well as other animals which were not owned and used to roam around here and there.
In the town of Hastinapur, there lived a great man named Bhima. He was a master of terrible elusion, false-propaganda and fraudulent policy. Unrighteousness was his nature. It was his religion to torture others and to experience joy in it.
Bhima’s wife was Utpala. At one time Utpala was pregnant. Three months of gestation were completed. At such a time, she had a twitch – ‘Those women, those mothers are blessed, fortunate, their life is successful, who are fed fried, roasted or miscellaneous of various parts of different kinds of animals like cow. Cooked meat made with spices is available for feeding. Along with it, drinking beverages like Sura, Madhu, Asava, Kadambari, Draksha are also available.
Truly blessed are those women, who get fulfilled such a plea. I am also twitched. Hopefully! Somehow it can be completed.’
Utpala had such twitch which remained in her mind only. She could not speak her mind to her husband. Her pleadings were not getting complete, so she started to feel anxious. This made her body dry up. The flesh of the body melted and the skeleton just started appearing. The body started to look like a patient.
The glow of the face disappeared. She used to stay sad. Body became pale. The sharp eyes disappeared. Lotus kind of face withered away. She stopped dressing with fragrance, beautiful clothes, gold jewelery and delicate flowers. The conscience of the decisiveness was destroyed. She became completely zero minded.
These changes in Utpal’s body could not remain hidden. Seeing weaker wife, Bhima asked- ‘Dear! What is the reason for this change in your body? You are always mourning, while these are the days of your celebration. Why are clouds of concern appearing at such a time? Seeing your sorrow, my heart is crumbling. ‘
Hearing this, Utpala said- ‘Swaminath! My womb is about three months old. I am struck by how blessed those women are, who fulfill their desire with a variety of non-vegetarian and varied types of drinking. What do I get? How will my prayer be fulfilled? Praneshwar! This desire of mine is not getting fulfilled, so the happiness of my mind is gone. My mind has become impatient. I live constantly into it.
Hey dear I feel that as long as I do not get this fulfilled, there will be no difference in my body and enthusiasm. ‘
Hearing this, Bhima told his wife- ‘Dear! Now you are free from worry. I will surely fulfill your desire.’
Utpala was convinced after hearing Bhima’s words like this. The day was over. Evening cloudy Night arrived. At midnight, Bhima exited his bedroom. He wore thick armor on the body and bow-arrow on the shoulder. Several other big and small arms came out of the house and reached the Gaushala located in the central part of the town of Hastinapur.
Nobody could see, thus Bhima entered the gaushala. Even animals do not know, so cleanly they started cutting their eyes, ears, tail, udder, etc. His weapon was so sharp that parts of animals like cows would be cut apart at once. Thus he collected meat and came out of the cowshed with blood dripping limbs and reached home in hiding. With a lot of love cows etc. animals were handed over to wife Utpala. Knowing my wish was fulfilled, Utpala was very happy. She went to the kitchen with blood meat and baked it, roasted it, cooked it and ate it with alcohol.
In this way Utpala’s plea was completed and she began to bear the womb happily. At the completion of nine months of pregnancy, Utpala gave birth to a son. As soon as he was born, the child started screaming horribly. The ear curtain started bursting with his scream. Hearing this scream, cows, bulls, calves etc. animals living in the cowshed got frightened and broke the bond and started running here and there. Seeing this, the parents thought that the cows were also angry because of its scream, so it should be named Gotras.
Thus the son was named – Gotras. Gotras’s childhood was spent in sports. He was young. One day, suddenly Gotras’ father Bhima died. Gotras got nervous due to this sudden objection. Family members came and consoled. He wept with his heart while weeping with relatives, friends, etc. and performed the last rites of the father and completed many deeds (Shraddha Karma).
King Sunand of Hastinapur got the assurance of Gotras when he got the news. Not only this, the king appointed Gotras to the post on which Bhima was employed. Gotras was not like his father. Bhima had some difficulty in explaining, but Gotras was not ready to understand anything under any circumstances.
Once gotras wanted to eat the flesh of cows and animals like dohad which came to mother before her birth. He disguised as a soldier like his father and reached the Gomandap at midnight. There he cut the ingredients of eyes, ears, nose, tail, udder, etc. of other animals, such as cows, and brought them home and roasted, cooked and consumed it with liquer. After this it became his routine. He started consuming meat and liquor in the same way every night. While doing this, he did the terrible sins.
After completing the age of five hundred years, at the end of time, he was suffering from extreme fear, anxiety, sorrow. After getting death in time, he became a Naraki of a superior age in the second hell. There he endured many grief-sorrows.
Hey Gautam! This town has a Sartavaha superior named Vijayamitra. His wife’s name is Subhadra. Every time Subhadra did maternity due the rise of earlier deeds, every time a child was born. Vijayamitra and Subhadra started feeling sad and upset.
Here, the living creature of Gotras continued to endure the terrible sufferings conferred by the divine gods for innumerable times in hell. In due course of time, the age of hell was fulfilled and was born in the ill-treatment of Subhadra, the wife of Vijayamitra. She was born on completion of nine months of pregnancy. Every time a child was born he died. This time it did not happen. The parents, overwhelmed with this fear, felt that this child would live. This made him very happy.
The child became longevity, for this purpose Subhadra threw him on a stare outside the city and then picked him up. He brought home a beautiful child care.
According to ritual, the parents spent generously and happily in the work of congratulating the son’s birth, sun-moon darshan, Jagran Utsav, etc. Thus eleven days were completed. On the occasion of naming on the twelfth day, the parents urged the boy to be named Ujhhitak, because she had thrown him on the stare at birth. All the present relatives supported it and accepted it with joy.
Laughing and playing in the lap of five-five goddess mothers, he grew-up gradually. One day Vijayamitra contemplated that Ujhhitak had become quite big and sensible. In trust, leaving home, I can go abroad for business. Thinking this, Vijayamitra took permission from wife and son.
Vijayamitra filled ghee, oil, jaggery, sugar, coconut, cloth, diamonds, emeralds, rubies etc. in his ship for sale in abroad. Departed at Lavanasamudra with the good wishes of wife and son in a good muhurta. Vijayamitra, dreaming of gold, was constantly moving with his ship into the sea.
Destiny’s games are unique. Vijayamitra’s fate was also damaged. The ship collided with an invisible sea rock before breaking ashore. All the goods merged into the sea. Passengers and sailors who walked together all drowned along with the ship. Trying desperately to escape, Vijayamitra went down the water in a state of helplessness. He died.
Within a few days, news of Vijayamitra and his ship’s accident spread in the town. There was no end to the Subhadra and Ujjitka’s suffering. ‘My husband drowned in the sea with salt and ships worth crores of rupees.’ While contemplating this idea, Subhadra drowned in an ocean of grief. She was out of her mind.
Just as the Champak tree collapses with one blow of the axe, similarly Subhadra fell to the ground with a bang. Relatives, friends and neighbors splashed water, fans fanned. Her consciousness returned after one hour. Everyone tied her up.
But thanks to the strangeness of this selfish world! Whatever material, jewelery, etc. kept by the trustworthy officers, nobles and sarthavas of the city, they all took their goods and went to some unknown place outside the town.
Subhadra performed her husband’s temporal-deceased work with her family. After completion of all the work, relatives went to their respective homes. But, the ocean of tears coming out of Subhadra’s eyes were unstoppable. Many days passed while remembering her husband, but Subhadra could not accept the truth.
She would remember her husband who had gone abroad, remembered the money of crores of rupees, remembered the strait of the ship, then the memory of her husband’s premature death would have been refreshed. Thus, one day crying, she went on her husband’s path. Subhadra died.
News of Subhadra’s death spread throughout the city with the speed of wind. When the city guards got this news, they entered Subhadra’s house. They first drove Ujjitka out of the house. After that they called all the creditors of the Vijaymitra from whom he had borrowed money and handed over the house in exchange for money.
In this way, the Ujjhitaka became completely orphaned. First, father died. A great deal of money went with the father. Then mother also left. Whatever was left with the mother, the house etc., all of that also went away. Now it has become like earth below, sky above. In these circumstances neither the relatives supported him nor the friends.
Lonely, orphaned, destitute, helpless, the ardent wanderer wandered the streets and squares of the town. Sometimes in shelters and sometimes on highways. Just as a house without a roof is not safe, in the absence of parents, the child becomes autocratic. There was no one to stop even the Ujjitak. He became completely free. After this, he found bitter friends.
Due to all these reasons he became fully involved in the miseries like theft, gambling, prostitution, adultery. Whatever money he got from theft and gambling, he would rob him of prostitution. Because of this, he had become an insane lunatic behind the prostitute named Kamadhwaja of the city.
Kamadhwaja was a very beautiful courtesan of the city of Vyaparigram. She was replete with 72 arts of femininity and 64 qualities of courtesan. Every element of her body was attractive. When she entered her building with sixteen adornments, the arrival of Rati, the wife of the dejected Cupid, would be felt. There was no other court in the entire town equaling her form, beauty, dance and song.
A high flag keeps waving at her building, which was a silent invitation to thousands. The value of spending a night with it was one thousand gold-currency. Kamadhwaja had a chariot named Karnarath with beautiful figurative horses for movement in the city. There were thousands of courtesans under her patronage, who worked under the direction of Kamadhwaja. The king of the city was pleased and presented her with umbrella, etc. In short, Kamadhwaja was a royal courtesan.
Ujjitaka remained mad at the feet of this Kamadhwaja prostitute, day and night. He could not live a single moment without her. He used to keep enjoying the joys of divine happiness while living in the human world with Kamadhwaja. For this, the public had spent thousands of gold coins.
Vijayamitra was the king of this town. King Vijayamitra was a powerful and rich. His wife’s name was Sridevi. Sridevi was a renewable store of form and beauty in itself. There was an infinite amount of love between the king and queen. Thus, time was passing in the joy of enjoyment.
The predestined Asata Vedani Karma emerged. Rani Sridevi suffered from a vaginal disease. She started living in constant pain due to the disease. He could not enjoy any happiness in the world. In this state of anguish, King Vijayamitra could not have sex with the queen. The king was not even disinterested with worldly pleasures, but his desire for pleasures was becoming stronger. It was impossible for him to get pleasure from Rani Sridevi.
Hence, the king was determined to go to Kamadhwaja court for work.
While entering the Ganika Bhavan, Raja got the news that Ujjitak remains mad after Kamadhwaja day and night. The king thought that this person would be a hindrance to my happiness. On the orders of the king, the bodyguards humiliated and drove him out of the building. The king felt peace when Ujithak left. He became relaxed with Kamadhwaja and started enjoying the excellent enjoyment of human beings.
In this way, the Ujjhitaka got away from the body from the Kamadhwaja, but the mind always continued to delight in Kamadhwaja. Day and night, he kept provoking the thoughts of Kamadhwaja. Without that Kamdhwaja, a single moment of life seemed worth 100 years to him. He lost his peace of mind in the face of Kamadhwaja. Like a madman, he would continue to grumble with the name of ‘Kamadhwaja’. It means that he was devoted to Kamadhwaja by mind, speech, body.
In such a situation, the same thought kept going in his mind, that what should I do, so that I can revive the subject-pleasures with Kamadhwaja again. He kept wandering around the Ganika Bhavan, hoping that the address would find a secret passage to enter the building and he could enter.
Finally one day he got the secret gate to enter the Ganika Bhavan of Kamadhwaja. When he entered the building from secret door, Kamadhwaja greeted him with a sweet gesture. Ujjitak again indulged in the enjoyment of subject-pleasures with Kamadhwaja.
When a person becomes blind in lust, he forgets his sorrows, enemies and even death. Big knowledgeable ascetics also become slaves to the subject-pleasures. Then what is the status of a foolish human! Staying here at Kamadhwaja, while enjoying the subject and happiness, the same was the situation of the Ujjhitaka.
Once upon a time. When Ujjitaka was busy with Kamadhwaja at Kamakrida, at the same time King Vijayamitra also arrived there. Vijayamitra’s wrath reached the seventh sky after seeing Ujjitak with his beloved courtesan together. His face turned red. Fuming with rage, he threw him outside the court house with the help of bodyguards. The king’s soldiers did not stop on this only.
They beat him fiercely with sticks and punches. Every element of the body became loose. The bones of the body started making noise. The soldiers tied both his hands behind and took him to the slaughter.
This was the same occasion when you saw him. Gautam! This is the sad story of him. Seeing this harsh culmination of the deeds of the benefactor, Gautam was filled with wonder.
Gautam asked- Bhagwant! Where will the Ujjhitaka die from here? And where will he born again? I said – Gautam! He will be dead today evening at the age of twenty-five. From here he will be born as Naraki in the first Ratnaprabha hell. After the Naraka-Ayushya, he will be born as a monkey at the foothills of the Vaithadya mountain.
With the arrival of puberty, the rites of previous occupation will rekindle in it. He will indulge in sexual conduct with the young monkeys. He will kill those who have children. In this way, he will get death by bonding with inauspicious karma while continuously committing misdeeds. He will be born again as a son in the house of a courtesan in Indrapur city of Jambudweep. With birth, parents will make him impotent. His name will be- Priyaseen.
With attaining youth, he will improve as a Priyaseen. He will be full of form, youth and beauty. Will become stunning with your intelligence and knowledge. Going forward, the king of Indrapur will subdue the superiority, commander, family, etc. through his knowledge and the inviting power, by subjugating them through invisibility, captivating, praising, and that man will spend his life enjoying all the material pleasures of the world. .
In this way, the life of Priyasena will be born in the first hell by completing the age of 121 years. From here, the reptile will be born many times in the form of a snake. Thereafter he will go to the seventh hell like Mrigaputra. After leaving from there, he will be born millions of times in the fish etc.
Then in Ursarisarp, Bhujparisarp, Khecher, etc. and will also be born millions of times in various forms. After leaving from there, that life of Priyasen will be attained many millions of times in the five types of single cell organism.
After repeated visits to numerous hells and Tiryanchagati, Priyasena’s life will be born as a cow in Champanagari in the Bharat region of Jambudweep. A circle of friends of that city will kill that cow. After getting death from it, he will be born in the same city as the son of a rich.
After entering into puberty, he will attain the right to a specific restrained stable monk and adopt an all-round life. From there, he will be born as a god in the first heaven. After fulfilling the life of god, he will take birth in a wealthy family in Mahavideh region and follow the Charitra Dharma and will go to Moksha only after attaining knowledge.
In the thick black night of Amavasya, the entire assembly was frightened by the sin-vipak while listening to the sin-vipak of the Ujjitaka mentioned by Lord Mahavira.
