41. Even Bhagavan Mahavira Who Has Fulfilled His Duties Moves Round The Holy Tree

This picture shows three incidents.

(1) The first incident above introduced for the first time. In this incident Bhagavan Mahavira before sitting on the throne moves round the holy tree under which he had attained absolute knowledge-Kevala Jnana in order to respect it. It is a great pleasure to see Bhagavan even in a picture moving round the tree. Then he bowed to Sri Samgha Tirtha by repeating ‘Namo-titthassa’ to respect it before delivering his sermon.

(2 & 3) After delivering sermon for three hours Bhagavan Mahavira got down from the throne and returned to ‘Devachanda’ a place in a Samavasarana. Then his chief disciple Gautama Swamiji delivered a sermon not from the Bhagavan Mahavira’s throne but from the place reserved to keep feet in front of the throne of from the other throne brought for him by god. We are wonder-struck to see Tirthamkara Bhagavan moving round the holy tree.
