“Jinke Sudh Asim Gun , Teen Bhuvan Mein Vyapt
Un Prabhu Ki Vandana Karu, Ho Gun Mujhko Prapat”.
I worship the Tirthankars, who are builders of the Universe. They are Omnipresent, omniscient, spiritual teachers of the Jains. I wish to follow their footsteps. There is a Rajgrah town in Magadh region. There lived a brahaman named Shandil and his wife was Parasiri.
That soul of Marichi was born to Parasiri and he was named as Sathaver. When he grew up he became the master of false granths. He became sage and started meditation. Then after his death he was reborn as deity in Mahander heaven.
He enjoyed his life for seven sagars there. After his death he was reborn to Vishavbhuti king and his queen was Jaini and he was named Vishav Nandi. Vishavbhuti was having one younger brother named Vishakhbhuti and his wife was Lakshmana.
They were having one son named Vishakhnand. Vishavbhuti realised that life is like a bubble of water. It is as short as cloud in the sky. One can die any time; hence he decided to give up the worldly possessions and became a saint.
He handed over the kingdom to his younger brother Vishakh Bhuti and gave the status of the king to his son Vishvanandi. He took Diksha from Shridhar muni. He became muni alongwith three hundred kings. He started meditation.
Once Vishvanandi was enjoying with his queens, Vishakhnandi reached there. Vishakhnandi demanded the garden of Vishavnandi from his father. He threatened his father and said that in case he could not get the garden he would go out of the house.
Vishakhbhuti assured his son that he would try his best to give him the garden. Once Vishakhbhuti told his nephew that he wanted to handover his kingdom to him and he would face the crises of other kings. Vishav Nandi replied his uncle that he may continue with his kingdom and he would face the crises of other kings.
After this, Vishav Nandi left out to fight with other kings. In the absence of Vishvanandi, Vishakh Bhuti handed over the garden of Vishvanandi to his son Vishakhnandi. When Vishvanandi came to know that his uncle played a trick with him and decisively gave his garden to his son, Vishakhnandi, he was pained to hear about this cheating.
He thought that his uncle should not deceive him. He got red with rage and attacked on his cousin, Vishakhnandi. He uprooted the tree and beat him badly with tree. After sometime Vishvanandi saw his cousin in miserable state.
He took pity on him. He realised that he should not beat his brother just for a garden. He gave that garden to him. He thought that he should give up all his worldly possessions and become a saint. He gave up his kingdom and took diksha from Sambhat Muni.
Snatching of Vishwanandi’s garden proved blessing in disguise to him. After sometime king Vishakhbshuti also realised his mistake and foolishness. He gave up all the worldly possessions and became a saint. He took fast and started meditation. After sometime he died and became celestial in Mahashukra heaven.
Muni Vishwanandi travelled from one place to another. He kept fast for so many days. His body became weak and powerless. He reached Mathura town. Vishakhnanadi started taking non-veg, drink and fell in wrong company.
He started going to prostitute. Once he was sitting on the roof of a prostitute’s place, muni Vishwanandi was going through the street. A cow kicked him with its horns and Vishwanandi fell down. Vishakhnandi started laughing at him and remarked, “Where have your strength gone ? Now you look like a dead body”.
Vishvanandi could not tolerate his unwanted remarks. He said to Vishakhnandi, “Due to effect of my meditation, you will face the result of your enemity.”After sometime Vishvanandi muni died and born as celestial (dev) where Vishakhbhuti was born.
He enjoyed the age of sixteen sagars. Both of them travelled in their planes to Sumaru Mountain, and Nandishwardeep. They worshipped the Arihant Bhagwan and they enjoyed the life with their wives. There is a Podanpurtown in Jambu Deep.
Prajapati was the king of that city and his queen was Jaivati. Vishakhbhuti was born to them and was named as Vijay. He was Bal Bhader. The life of Vishakhnandi was born as Triprishth to the same king Prajapati with his second queen Mrigawati.
He was very strong Narayan. Both the brothers acquired deep knowledge of Granths and they were experts in all types of arts. They were worshipped by the celestials. They got fame and reputation like the sun and the moon.
In Bharat region, there is a Vijyaradh mountain and in its north side there is Alkapuri city. King Myurgriv was ruling there. His queen was Nilanjana. Vishakhnandi was born to them. There is a Ratanpur country on the north side of Vijyaradh Mountain and there is a Chakerwalkpuri town in that city which was ruled by Jawalanjatti.
He was very renowned king. On the same mountain there was Dutilok town and its ruler was Chanderabh who was ruling over Vidhiadhars. His queen was Superbha. A daughter named Vayuvega was born to them. When she became young she was married to Jawalanjatti.
They gave birth to a son Arkkirti and a daughter Swamprabha. She grew up. She was religious. Once Jawalanjatti called a learned person and asked him who would be the husband of his daughter. He told him that she would be the most fortunate and would be married to a Ardhchakri Narain (Triprishth).
That triprishth would help you in getting kingdom of both sides of Vijyaradh and you would become ruler of Vidyadhars. King wrote a letter and sent to Triprishth through his minister. Minister reached in Ramyak forest of Podanpur by air.
Triprishth already came to know the incident through some learned person. He was already aware about that minister. When the minister reached Triprishth, he bowed and paid his best regards to him. Triprishth gave him due regards and offered him proper seat to sit on.
The minister produced the letter which was sealed and stamped. The kino ordered him to read out that letter. In that letter it was stated that Jwalanjatti, the king of Vidyadhars, who was from the dynasty of king Bahubali and the son of Rishabhdev of Podanpur, has requested King Triprishth Narayan to accept the marriage of his daughter with him.
Triprishth gladly accepted the request. The minister returned back to Ratanpur and he conveyed that Triprishth had agreed to marry with the daughter of Jwalanjatti. Their marriage was solmanised. The girl was beautiful, attractive, charming and having various qualities.
King Jawalan Jatti offered Singh Vahani and Guru Vahani Vidhias to his son-in-law. King Ashwagir could not tolerate their marriage. He reached in Ratanpur to fight with Triprishth. Triprishth also reached there after preparing his army.
There was a tooth and nail fight between both the kings. Triprishth won over Ashvagir with his bravery. Ashvagir threw his Ratanchaker on Triprishth but by the good luck of Triprishth, the Rattan Chakerwas caught on his right arm.
Triprishth also threw the Rattan chaker with a view to win over the three sided part of the region. Ashvagir died and due to his false karmas, he went to seventh hell. In seventh hell, there was nothing but sorrows and problems.
After winning over Ashvagir he got fame and reputation all over the world. He won over so many kings. They married their daughters with Triprishth and offered him valuable gifts. He offered the kingdom of two sides of the region to Jwalan Jatti and came back to his city with great pomp and show.
He was honoured with somany Vidhyadhars and became Narayan . He enjoyed his life with sixteen thousand queens and forgot about religion absolutely and started malpractices. He did not give any charity and his activities became vicious.
Due to his foul activities he died and was born in the seventh hell. When he was born in hell his body developed in no time and he fell down on the earth. He started crying and weeping. He felt as much trouble as if thousands of scorpions were biting him.
He jumped up about 120 kosh from the earth. When the Narkies came to beat him he thought that the earth was unwanted, where there was nothing but pain and sorrows. These narkies were experts in giving trouble to him.
The bad and corrupt acts he did in his prebirth, due to which he had to face the tortures. Then Triprishth came to know from his Avadhigyan that he had killed somany living beings, insulted and tortured so many bodies, kidnapped the others’ wives and girls, snatched others’ wealth, ate non-veg, drank the wine and went against the religion.
He further realised that he did not adopt Ahimsa. He did not give charity to the needy persons. He did not perform Devpuja and because of his bad deeds he had to face these problems. He was thinking how he could get the shelter.
In the mean time a group of narkies reached there having big sticks in their hands. They started beating him, some of them drew out his eyes some of them hit his body parts and boiled his body parts in boiling oil.
To get relief he went into the river but its water was salty and was giving bed smell. This gave him more trouble. Then he went under the tree in the forest. The leaves of the tree were sharp like sword. They also gave him more trouble.
The other narkies started eating him. He could not get a drop of water to drink nor could he get anything to eat. He suffered untold miseries for 33 sagars there. On the other side Balbahadur gave up all the worldly possessions and took Diksha and became Digamber saint.
He studied the books containing teachings of Tirthankaras. He himself gave preachings to so many persons which could lead them to Moksha. He travelled from one place to another in forests and on mountains to promote the religion.
