Meaning of word Jai Jinendra
Jai Jinendra !
I was very happy to know that you wanted to know the meaning of "Jai
Jinendra". The word Jain came from "Jin". We are the followers of
"Jin" so we are called Jain. "Jin" means one who have achieved Jeet
(Victory) over internal and eternal enemies including Karmas. They are
the Enlightened Souls who have achieved Omniscience (Pure and complete
knowledge - all knowing, all seeing, can observe past present and future
of the entire universe).
They have showed us the true path to achieve salvation. By saying Jai we
are praising the glory of those great Souls (Tirthankaras) and by doing
this indirectly we are trying to internalise and imbibe their greatness in
ourselves. By Jinendra we are saluting and appreciating the virtues of
tose Jins who also have achieved full control over their Indriyas
(Senses). Every Jain or on fact everyone should always start the
communication (both written and oral) with "Jai Jinendra". By admiring
the greatness of these Emancipated Souls we get benefitted and feel more
purified at the same time achieving further victories over our Karmas.
Thats all for now, I hope this helps.
