Life[edit] Abhinandananatha or Abhinandana Swami was the fourth Tirthankara of the present age (Avasarpini).[1] He is said to have lived for 50 lakh purva.[2] He was born to King Sanvara and Queen Siddhartha at Ayodhya in the Ikshvaku clan.[3] His birth date was the second day of the Magh shukla month of the Indian calendar.[1] He attained Kevala Jnana under priyangu tree.[4] According to Jain beliefs, he became a siddha, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its Karma.[citation needed] According to Jain tradition, his height was 350 dhanusha (1,050 meters).[5] Adoration[edit] Svayambhustotra by Jain monk, Acarya Samantabhadra is the adoration of twenty-four tirthankaras. Its five slokas (aphorisms) adore the qualities of Abhinandananātha.[6] One such sloka is:

“ By constantly feeding the body to subdue inflictions like hunger, and by indulging in transient pleasures of the senses, neither the body nor the soul remains unscathed. Such deeds thus benefit neither the body nor the soul; O Lord Abhinandananātha, you had thus expounded the true nature of reality.[7] ”

Abhinandananatha is associated with Ape emblem, Piyala tree, Yakshesvara & Nayaka Yaksha and Vajrasrinkala & Kalika Yakshi.[8]
