13. The Parents Of A Would Be Tirthamkara Fondling And Loving Their Divine Child

The picture depicts the father Siddhartha and the mother Trisala loving and fondling their Tirthamkara child Vardhamana (Mahavira). Who will not like the child Bhagavan Mahavira the universal saviour, the incarnation of compassion? He acquired this siddhi by great spiritual apprenticeship and devotional prayers in his previous births. Which parents will not be joyful to see their divine child praised and worshipped by gods and Indra? Every one will like him. We have no tradition to draw the pictures of meeting child. Vardhamana with the mother Trisala. So I could not find the picture of household life of Bhagavan Mahavira. Hence I got this picture drawn. In the history of painting of Jaina Tirthamkaras this type of picture is presented for the first time. I hope people will appreciate it.
