5. इरियावहिया सूत्र (Iriyävahiyä sutra)

5. iriyävahiyä sutra Introduction
આ સૂત્રથી રસ્તામાં જતાં-આવતાં થયેલી જીવોની હિંસાનું પ્રાયશ્ચિત કરવામાં આવે છે. કયા કયા જીવો માર્યા હોય? અને કઈ કઈ રીતે માર્યા હોય? તેનું વર્ણન કરવામાં આવ્યું છે. થયેલી હિંસા બદલ હૃદય અત્યંત દુઃખી થયું છે તેવી સંવેદના વ્યક્ત કરવામાં આવે છે.
