Bahubali Deva, a great Jain Saint

Bahubali was the son of Rishabdev, and similar to his father Sri Rishabadeva, he renounced his share of kingdom, and become a famous Jain Monk by following the principles of his father, and he was considered to be a very ancient Jain Monk. Bahubali was believed to have been born in the Ikshvaku dynasty in Ayodhya before few millions of years ago, and he was specialised in all kinds of arts, and his brother’s name was Bharata, who is believed to be the founder of Bharatam, the present day India.

Bahubali has performed severe meditation for more than a year in a standing manner, even without sitting for a single moment, and due to that,ant burrows were also formed on his body. He was praised by Lord Devendra himself, and he offered a beautiful flower garland to him as a token of love and respect, but the great Bahubali didn’t accepted it, by considering it as a luxurious item for him.

After the completion of rigorous meditation for one year term, Bahubali has attained spiritual enlightenment, and from then onwards, he was regarded as a “SUPREME JAIN MONK”. Bahubali is also called as Kammateswara and Gommateshwara, and a big statue for Bahubali was installed near Mysore, Karnataka as an honour to him. In an ancient Jain Purana, the details about Lord Rishabhadeva, and about his sons Bharata and Bahubali were mentioned, and It was composed by Jinasena, a famous Jain Monk, before several years ago.
