About

5th Ganadhara of Tirthankara Mahavira

Sudharmaswami gained omniscience in 515 BC and attained Nirvana in 507 BC at the age of 100.
After gaining omniscience, the religious order was entrusted to his principal pupil, Jambuswami.
During the period of his stewardship, Sudharmaswami composed the Lord's teachings in 12 parts, which are known as the 12 Jain Agamas.
Many of the agamas are composed in the form of questions asked by the disciple Jambuswami and the replies given by Sudharmaswami.
