Shubhachandracharya, quoted in, The Essence of Jainism
O Soul! Drink the ambrosial nectar of spiritual knowledge to remove the suffering of the world, and take the help of the ship of meditation to cross the ocean of worldly existence. Liberation is attained by the destruction of karmas. Karmas are destroyed through right knowledge, and that knowledge is obtained through meditation, i.e. knowledge realized through meditation. For this reason, the ultimate good of the soul lies in meditation.
