Who is Padmavati Mata

 

Padmavati Mata is a Yakshni of 23rd Thirthankar Bhagwan Parsvanath.

Bhagwan Parsvanath is worshipped the most in Jain folks, and since Dharnendra and Padmavati played a very important role, hence they are also worshipped. According to Jain ideology, “Puja” is done only for Tirthankar, their sermons, and monks who follow their path. But, then also all Jain folks, address Yakshni Padmavati as “Mata” and worship her with equal respect, and just to mark the same, the idols of Bhagwan Parsvanath are made with snake hood on top, to represent Dharnendra and Padmavati. Few places even have a separate idol and Temples of Mata Padmavati, and on top of Padmavati fangs, there is always a statue of Parsvanath Bhagwan.

Whenever any disciple is in trouble, they remember Mata Padmavati and do worship and do pooja in her name. All these sacred books are very famous and available in Sanskrit and prakritik language. On the same basis Acharya Kunth Sagar ji and Yuva Acharya Shri Gundhar Nandi have also edited and compiled sacred text on Mata Padmavati.

It is believed that who all worship Mata Padmavati, gets himself free from all miseries and sorrows. There are lot of stories which reflect the miraculous power of the idols. There are lot of stories and incidents related to the same.

   

Who are Yaksha & Yakshni

 

Jains pay their respect and worship idols of Jinas for three reasons:
He has liberated Himself and attained Moksha
He expounded the path of Liberation
To get an inspiration to become like Him

The only goal of Jainism is to free ourselves from the worldly sufferings and attain liberation. Jin is a liberated soul, freed of its material body and resides in the top of the universe, called Siddha-loka. The images of Jina's are intended to serve as reminders to the faithful of the possibility of liberation; i.e., they served as role models for both the Jain laity, guiding their ethical code of living, and for the aspirant, Jin providing inspiration and a reminder that spiritual liberation is an attainable goal. As a detached soul, removed from this world, the Jin is incapable of responding to a devotee's prayers or requests.
