Virnath BhagwanI bow to tirthankaras who are worshipped by deities. They are the source of eternal peace. The life of Triprishth was born as lion on the bank of river Ganga in a deep forest. The forest was having high mountains.
As a lion he lived there for one sagar. He used to kill other animals and eat them. After the death he was reborn as lion in the mountains of Sindhu forest. It was a dreadful lion and had sharp nails and teeth. Once it killed a deer mercilessly and was carring it for eating its meat.
At the same time two munis named Jeasth and Amitej were going through the sky. They saw this lion. They got down from the sky and got seated on a beautiful stone. The appearance of these munis was undescribeable.The lion was also standing there.
After sometime, muni Amitej said to the lion, “Oh lion! Listen to my teachings carefully. When you were king Triprishth, so many kings were getting your shelter but now you have adopted the path of violence and crime.
Hence you went to hell and faced the untold miseries. Now you will be born in Bharat region and you will be the twenty fourth Tirthankara and I am telling you the same. Now you give up eating of meat and killing animals and adopt right belief and right religion.
Then you will not face the worldly problems and you will be a Tirthankar in your rebirth”. The lion believed on the teachings of the muni. It gave up killing animals. It worshipped both the munis and bowed in their feet. Thereafter, it started keeping fast and adopted religious path.
It tolerated thirst and hunger. The lion started thinking about the miserable condition of the world. It became merciful and kind to animals. Thereafter it died and was reborn as prosperous diety named as Singhketu in the first heaven of Saudharam.

The king was ruling on Vidhiadhar’s community and his queen was Kanakmala. Singhketu was born to this couple and was named as Kanakjawal. On the birth of his son the king went to the temple and performed his puja with great zeal and enthusiasm.
He gave charity to the needy persons. He arranged dances on his birth. The boy grew up like a moon. He studied the religious granths. He was married to the daughter of his maternal uncle named Kanakwati. Once he went to Mahameru Mountain and did his puja in the temple.
He saw a naked muni. He went around him three times and bowed his head in his feet.He requested muni to preach him with religious teachings which may be helpful to get Moksha. Muni told him that he would tell him about the religion.
The real religion is that which shows the path of Moksha to a person. He guided him to become a naked muni. The real religion is that which fulfils the desires of human beings and protect them from worries and sorrows. After following the religion one can become Chakerwarti, Balbhadur, Narain and Tirthankar.
