Abhati: The One Who Shines

This painting in its grandeur depicts the life of Mahaveer Jain, the twenty fourth Tirthankara of the Jain traidition. Though Mahaveer was born in a royal family but had left all worldly possession to be a monk at the age of 30. Tirthankaras are the ones who were born as human beings but have attained enlightenment through sacrifice, meditation and self realization. Mahaveer Jain's pursuit of the ultimate truth, knowledge and bliss had continued for 12 long years and his ultimate realization is known as the Keval-Jnana.
