JAIN MAP OF INDIA AND ITS HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE

FROM

JAINA SHRINES IN INDIA , O. P. TANDON,

MY MARGINAL NOTES MADE ON 20-11-1996

  1. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NORTHERN MOST CENTRE WAS DELHI AND THE SOUTHERN MOST IS KANYAKUMARI/NAGERKOIL AND IN THE WEST GUJARAT, MAHARASHTRA, RAJASTHAN AND IN THE EAST BANGLADESH
  2. ALSO NOTE MANY TIRTHANKARAS HAVE NATHA AS SUFFIX
  3. ENTIRE GANGES PLAIN IS COVERED. AND HISTORY OF JAINISM BEGINS IN RIG VEDA WITH RISHABA DEVA’S NAME THIS PROVES TWO THINGS VEDIC CULTURE WAS THROUGHOUT THE PLAINS OF GANGES DURING RIG VEDA.
  4. ALSO NOTE ALMOST ALL THE TIRTHANKARAS ARE FROM GANGES REGION.
  5. FIRST TIRTHANKARA BECOMES HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT FOR TWO REASONS. HIS EMBLEM IS BULL, WHICH IS MORE PREDOMINANT IN INDUS-SARASVATI CIVILISATON. THAT MEANS JAIN BUSINESS MEN WERE MORE IN INDUS VALLEY.
  6. FIRST TIRTHANKARA HAS BULL FACED GOMUKHA YAKSHA AS HIS YAKSHA, PERHAPS VAHANA. WE HAVE SUCH SEALS IN THE COLLECTION OF INDUS SEALS .
  7. VERY INTERESTING IS THE ATTRIBUTION OF 24 TREES AND PLANTS TO TIRTHANKARAS . THIS SHOWS THE GREAT IMPORTANCE SHOWN BY JAINS TO OUR ENVIRONMENT
  8. SYMBOLS  OF BULL, ELEPHANT, ALLIGATOR, SWASTIKA , RHINOCEROS, BUFFALO , FALCON, SERPENT TC ARE ON INDUS-SARASVATI SEALS.
  9. ACCORDING TO SVETAMBARA SECT , FIRST THIRTHANKARA WAS BORN IN KAILASA. THIS IS VERY INTERSTING. LIKE SAIVITES THEY ALSO BELIVED IN THE HOLINESS OF THE HIMALAYAS.

JAINS, BUDDHISTS, AND HINDUS MUST SIT TOGETHER AND COMPILE ALL THE SIMILARITIES IN THE AREAS OF GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, FAITH, FLORA, FAUNA AND SYMBOLS. THIS WILL HELP US TO REWRITE OUR HISTORY. NAMES LIKE ARISHTA NEMI ARE IN VEDAS AS WELL.

PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED MAP AND LIST OF 24 TIRTHANKARAS

is one of the oldest religions.
