History of Parasvanath

 

Parshva or Parshvanatha (parsvá-natha, occasionally spelled Parshvanath or Parswanath) is the twenty-third Tirthankara (fordmaker) in Jainism. Lord Parshvanath flourished in 9th Century B.C., (877 B.C.- 777 B.C.). He is the earliest Jain leader that can be reliably dated.

Parshva was the son of king Ashvasena and queen Vama of Varanasi. He renounced the world and became an ascetic when he was 30 years old. He achieved Nirvana atop Sammet Sikhar. Still in our times he is the most popular among the Jains.

Lord Parshvanath is always represented with the hood of a snake shading his head. The Yaksha Dharanendra and the Yakshni Padmavati are often shown flanking him. This is because of a famous legend.

In Jain canonical literature, Parshvanatha is represented in 'padmasana' (lotus) posture – both palms and feet, with auspicious lotus marks on them, placed upward. He has blue-black complexion – the color of the cosmos. The hooded serpent Shesh – umbrella-like unfurling its hoods over the deity.
