The Beginning of Tirth

The life size statue of esteemed Lord Shri Parshwanath, the 23rd tirthankar of the Jain religion has been installed here. To prove its ancientness a few of the facts are as under: In the olden times the statues made out of precious and semi-precious stones were mostly preferred than the ordinary stone statues, according to the sayings this statue was also made of Markat Mani. The original life size statue (measuring nine hands length) of the same color, shape, pleasant facial expressions and action oriented pose, can be crafted only by some one who had personally seen the Lord. In spite of dreadful and torrential rain Dharnendra Dev continued Lord’s devotional bhakti for almost three days, in it’s memory the Lord’s statue was crafted. The example of which has been described in Shri Parshwanath Charitra, Parshwanath Panch-Kalyanak Pujan and various other treatise related to Jain Religion. After Diksha the roaming area to the Lord remained in and around the surroundings of Varanasi. Related to the same are Ahichhatra tirths where perhaps Meghamali continued it’s upasarga towards the Lord and Dharnendra Dev Crafted Lord’s Statue. After a long time the same was brought perhaps by the angels at it’s present site of Unhel. In the second century old jain Stupas situated around the stony Hillocks near Mathura’s stone inscription there are represences about some eleven Hundred years old jain building’s and statues, wherein there are deiscriptions of statues installed by angels and among them there is also a represence of a life size statue made of Market Mani. Perhaps this statue of Lord Shri Nageshwar Parshwanath may be the same one. There is a reference in the old treaties about creations of statues of the great saint by persons during their life time and hence this may not be improbable or surprising. The sacred special light marks on pedestal of the statue also proves this and the experts of statues have also endorsed there facts. Considering the above points and the history of Shri Nageshwar tirth, without any hesitation this can be inferred very well that this statue is 3000 years old and that there cannot be two opinions about it.

Started Dancing

In the month of Shravan it was a Krishnasthmi day in the Vikram Samvat of 2026. A black cobra had bite the son of a drum beater (Dholi) of the Unhel village. The boy fainted due to the poisionous effect and appeared proceeding to meet the death. Throughout there were lamentations, Mantra-Tantra and Jhad-Phook, every try was proved to be useless. The family members of the victim remained distressed and hopeless. On some one’s suggestions the boy was being taken at the Nag Temple of nearly ‘Sevara’ village but the ‘Dev’ (the power which enters into someone’s human body and shows its influence) ordered them to take the boy into the shelter of the Lord Nageshvar Parshwanath at Unhel it self. All the gathered people playing dhol, manjire and kartal and singing bhajans brought the effected boy to the Teerth place. The boy stoodup within some time strechling his body and twisting the limbs, as if he was just awaken from a deep sleep. And after this he started dancing whith the tunes of the kirtans.

Two and half feet long

on the very night of the above incident at about 1.30 a.m. a boy named Bhera started creating disturbances and nuisances in the bhajan’s programme. Due to loud shouting and nonsense ulterances his throat started drying and at last he has to go out for drinking water. After drinking water when he was returning to continue his nuisance he found a cobra at the gate hissing in anger. It appeared that the Cobra king had arrived to punish him for his crime. He prayed to the cobra to forgive him but the cobra did not move from there. The participants of the kirtan then came out and prayed for the life of Bhera. Only then the Nagraj gave him the passage to enter into the Temple. After reaching inside Bhera devotedly prayed to the Lord and vowed not to repeat such disturbances in future. Next morning the other day the sweeper found a white slough (cast skin) near the feets of the Lord, which was some two and half feet long. Being Heard During the Shravan month of Vikram Samvant 2026, when the Muniraj was in deep devotion of Atamkalyank-Sadhna a Dev told: “Belter you go to any such Teerth place of Lord Shri Parshwanath and continue your Sadhana there-where there is all around greenery, Rivers are flowing, there are Bavadees, Gardens, Water-Pool, water falls and where there is action-oriented green coloured standing grand statue of lord Shri Parshwanath, at such place. you will succeed very early in your sadhna”. Next morning after getting up, Muniraj started inquiring about such Teerth Place. After being infrormed about Lord Shri ‘Nageshwar Parshwanath’, he wrote a letter to the Teerth Pedhi and obtained further detailed informations. After finding all those symptoms, which the ‘Dev’ has described in the dream are virtually existing there at this Teerth Place, there was no limit of joy for him. Definately he will be reaching soon to the Teerth Place and shall succeed in his Sadhna ! Due to there righteous-values the fortunates even get the advance information about the Teerth in their dreams.

Come with Me

A group of eighty devotees reached to Nageshwar ‘Parshwanath’ from Ratlam on 15-9-70, while returning some 60 persons proceeded towards Thuriya station which is just two miles away. Mathura-Baroda local is available at 8.00 p.m. for going to Ratlam from Thuriya. The manager of the Teerth accompanied the group upto the bank of the river Kshipra. Busy in discussions the group strayed from the path. The devotees were afraid and also disappointed because being late they may not be able to catch the train. Being frustrated they all started praying lord Shri Nageshwar Parshwanath collectively. At this time some villager coming from the narrow valley side of the river approached them and asked the devotees – “You wants to go to Ratlam by Train, come with me. The train is late by one and a quarter hour today.” Charmed with incantation they followed the new comer and reached to the Railway Station within some ten minutes. The train was actually late by one and a quarter hour. The guide left. Devotees reached to their homes safely. Due to over joy the devotees forget to thank the guide and to ask his name. After they wrote a  letter to the Teerth Pedhi narrating the entire episode.

Name in the Dream

When a big wealthy industrialist was sleeping deeply, he heard the name of Lord Nageshwar Parshwanath in dream, suddently he got awaked and started think where is this Teerth. How to reach there ? Till morning he continued thinking about it. After surfing so many jain newspapers and magazines he got detailed information about this Teerth in a magazine named ‘Sughosha’. Straightway he reached to Indore by airoplane and proceeded towands theTeerth by boarding a car from Suvasara-Mandi. The road was unmettaled. The car was entangled in bog of the river on the way and could not proceed further. Disappointed the wealthyman returned to Suvasara-Mandi walking and passed night at a Guest House there. Remebering continuosly the Prabhu he proceeded again towards the Teerth. Due to lord’s blessings and kindness all the time and resourses turned fovourable and at about 9.30 a.m. He reached at the lord’s  feet and obtained the benefit of the Darshan. He spent the whole day delightfully rendering Bhakti and Pooja of the lord. By leaving his mind at the feet of the lord in the evening the wealthy man returned to his city, resolving to serve the lord throught out his life. This episode is of December 1970 not very old. To listen the name of the Teerth in the dream, to keep it remembered and finally get the dream turned into a reality is actually very astonishing and wonderful.

Door was knocked

One day when the entire village of Unhel was in deep sleep and the darkness of the night was dreadful, all of a sudden the doors of the Teerth started knocking. Being suspicious the muneem and watchman of the Teerth inquired the visitor, who he is-what his name. Greeting Lord Nageshwar Parshwanath with Jai-Dhwani the visitor indentified himself as the Station Master of the nearby Thuriya Railway Station who being inspired by some unknown power had come with his family for the Darshan of the Lord. The door were opened. After Darshan and praying the lord the Station Master vowed that now onwards he will provide the best of facilities to the devotees, all the time. The Station Master now had been transffered. The new one, who has come in his place is also deeply impressed by the glory of the Lord. He too had visited the Teerth place so many times with family and friends. He had planned a beautifiul scheme for the betterment of the road reaching to Unhel from Thuriya, so that the devotees may reach the Teerth place conviniently. The service-oriented residents of Thuriya village always accompany the devotees, guiding there in reaching the Teerth place. This all is the effect of the Lord’s devotion.

The Labourer Devotee

A poor, childless labourer couple of Jodhpur heard from some one that so many people have been blessed with child, just by visiting the Lord Nageshwar Parshwanath. This poor labourer and his wife proceeded towards the Teerth place from Jodhpur doing odd jobs on the way. Ultimately they reached at Unhel. After devotionally having the Darshan of the Lord they returned back. Within a year they were blessed with a son. The labourer being emotionally sentimental resolved that he will not have food till he again go to Unhel to offer his gratitudes at the feet of the lord, he again reached Unhel from Jodhpur. Due to the delivery of the child his wife remained at home. The labourer took meals after having the Darshan of the Lord, such true poor labourer devotees are really blessed one.

Strange Dream

The proprietor of one of the firm of Indore – Daumal Hastimal and main Trustee of Shri Arbudgiriraj Tapagachchha upashraya, Shri Balubhai who were escorting oli observer Bhakta’s to some temple place every year, one night had the Darshan of Lord Nageshwavr Parshwanath in dreams. Next day he put forward the proposal before the observers of chaitri-oli of Vikram Samvant 2026 to visit this temple, but the journey could not be comenced being unconvinient to some of them. Seth conducted the Upadhana Tap and wore mokshamala at Sabarmati in Ahmedabad. On sixth day night of Margshirsha Krishna of Vikram Samvant 2027, he had a dream that he is silting in a car and is proceeding towards the journey of Lord Parshwanath. Due to failure of the engine of the car, in which he was sitting stopped on the way in dense forest. He started remembering and praying the Lord. Suddenly a blue coloured divine person appeared before him and asked him to close eyes, while closing the eyes seth started praying the Lord. When he opened his eyes, he found himself alongwith the car in the premises of the Teerth Place. After reaching before the feets of his revered Lord he started observing Pranipaat. At this time he got awoke. On the last day of Paush Krishna in the Vikram Samvat 2027, he alongwith some one Hundred and fifty devotees reached to the Teerth Place and participated in the Janm Kalyanak Mahotsava of the Lord there at. During the various functions he felt himself obliged by appering Bolis (bets) and motivated his friends in offering considerable amount towards the development activities of the Teerth Place.

Dry Hairs of the Girl

on Fourteenth day of Vaishakh Krishna Chaturdashi of Vikram Samvant 2027, some 800 devotees of Piplon Shri Sangha visited the Teerth, under the guidance of Respected Manoharshriji Maharaj Saheb’s deciple Sadhvi, Shri Indu Shriji Maharaj Aadi Thane 15. After participating in Poojan-Darshan Bhakti and Swami Vatsalya programmes etc., were just moving here and there, suddenly the only doughter of Agar resident Shri Vardichandji fell into the well by slipping her feet. There was total uproar. People started praying the Lord. The girl was rescued safely from the well. The persons who jumped into the well to save the girl were completely damped, but surprisingly the girl’s boday above the neck was fully remained dry. Being astonished with the miracle every one who were present there started chanting Jaighosh of the Lord Parshwanath.

Unfortunate priest

This is an incident of some thirty-forty years ago, when the management of Teerth was not in the hands of Jain Community. A priest of this Teerth fall into the habit of consuming liquor, one day when fully drunked he was entering the temple, a snake bite him. Instantly he fell unconscious. People started praying the Lord. Due to the divine grace of the sitting Dev the poison of the Snake’s bite descended and after obtaining consciousness he vowed not to drink in future. Breaking the pledge he a again started drinking and fully drunked entered the temple. Under the toxic effect he started creating nuisances, A snake bite him once again. Due to prayers of his family members he got the gift of life again. He recovered and repeated vows not to drink again. But the resolution of the drunkard are never  permanent, Third time one day he created ruckus situations being drunked, Surprisingly this time again the snake bite him but his life could not be saved. He could not obtain forgiveness for his crimes and he died.

Effect of the Teerth

Somebody in dream on 15-10-70 told to Shri Shantilalji Surana, the convener of ‘Special Teerth Yatra Bus’ to arrange pilgrimage tour of Nageshwar Pashwanath this year. The very next day he received a letter from shri Ganivarya shri Abhay sagar Maharaj (the renovator of this Teerth place) Saheb’s disciple revered Upadhyay Shri Dharam Sagarji Maharaj intimating that this year Paush Dashmi’s festival is being organised at Nageshvar  Parshwanath and he should come here with the special pilgrimage bus on the occasion. After the announcement very soon the bus was being booked fully. When the bus was just to start some one approached and warn the devotees not to proceed for the Teerth via allot route, else the bus will entrapped in the way. On enquiry it was confirmed that the way was actually not good and roadable. A car is already entrapped there and the occupant devotees have to complete their journey by Tonga, Bullock-cart and even on feet at about 1.30 a.m. in the night. The bus carring some 130 devotees left Indore. It was early morning time of the dawn, suddenly the Bus stopped before some 2-3 miles away from the Teerth place, the condition of the road was in very bad shape, the passengers have to reach the Teerth place by walking on feet and carry accompanied belongings over their heads. It was most surprising that when they reached the Teerth after some time their bus and previously trapped car also reached there. The devotees had darshan, offered puja, attended the lectures and enjoyed. performance of the drama, ”Meruparvat par Dig-Kumariyon ka Janmabhishek” played by the students of Indore’s Sangeet Shala. Afterwards they boarded for return. Everyone was suspicious that bus may not entrapped again but having trust into lord shri Nageshvar Parshwanath they proceeded further what a wonderful effect of this Punya-Bhoomi that their bus crossed the entire 15 miles distance smoothly, as if it is plying on a concreted tar road. In return when they reached Ujjain the devotees wanted to visit Avanti Parshwanath and the glass temple. The doors of the temple were closed at 9.30 p.m and it was about 11.30 p.m. But due to the strong devotional spirit and desire of Darshan, they could gain entry and obtained the privilege of Darshan at such an odd time, when the devotees reached Indore it was 1.30 a.m. on the previous night they started their journey at this very time. The similarity of the beginning and ending time are experienced only by those who are vertued one.

Absence of Greediness

Some 3000 devotees were gathered at the Teerth Place on Tuesday the 22-12-70 to participate in the tenth day festival of Paush. The place was fully crowded. By chance one hundred and sixty five Rs. felled some where from the pocket of shri Omkarlalji Choradiya of Indore. It was announced on the public address system. Immediately a young lady came forward and gave the money to Shri Choradiya. This was the effect of the Teerth’s glory that greediness could not overlap the minds of the devotees.

Cycle remain secured

when Shri Chatarmalji of Indore were proceeding for the pilgrimage of lord shri Parshwanath, his son placed the cycle on the road near Ameeriya stores in Malharganj unlocked and entered into a shop to purchase some handkerchiefs. After the purchase when they returned from the pilgrimage they remembered about the cycle, they were fully afraid. With doubt in mind they reached the same spot. They found the cycle safe and secured in a city like Indore for such a long time, they bowed their heads devotionally remembering lord shri Parshwanath.

Departure of the fever

Test of Sacrifice

Seetabai, the wife of the chief of the Teerth Bhai shri Deepchandji one day in dream saw three one and quarter feet long golden colour snakes at he the gate, when she had the darshan of the lord, the snakes asked her in human voice: ‘time has come fullfil your vows.” Sita bahen told she had made no vows. got the reply that her husband Deepchandji had made the commitments. She asked her husband who was standing nearby. Seeta bahen then told, he also does not remember of any such commitments, please remind him. Nagraj told that after the successful completion of renovation work of the mandirji you had vowed to sacrifice your small son. the small boy was also seen with them in the dream. The couple offered their son to the Nagraj with pleasure. The serpent bite him and he felt unconscious. Couple felt that their vow had been fulfilled and starled walking. Their son who felt to death, regain life and started following them, just after that Seeta bahen got awaked from the sleep with great astonishment. (Some non-Jain or unmatured minded people or devotees should not consider from the above incident that during the construction  of a Jain Temple or for the fulfilment of any desires the creatures are being sacrified. This is a episode of a dream duly influenced by the effect and impact of the time. It will not be out of place here to mention that for the staunch belief of the religion the followers, such type of great sacrifices are being tested. The old treatise are proof this. In non-voilance oriented Jain Dharma there is no place for voilance or sacrifies.

It is as under, in her own words – “Before some four years when I was going to Mandsaur from Ujjain, some invisible power stoped me at Jaora in proceeding further and my internal inspiration was repeatedly directly me not to go that way, but to go this way. I asked the driver of the car to go towards the Nageshwar direction, although I was not knowing anything about Nageshwar at that time. The driver and other persons asked not to go on this way because onward the road is not concereted one and there comes two rivers in between where there are no bridges to cross them. By going you may be placed in very awkward situation and to face great inconvinience. But some invisible power was repeatedly inspiring me to proceed towards the Nageshwar way. When we reached at Unhel, we came to know that Param Pita Lord Shri Nageshwar is seated here. I felt fully blessed by having Darshan of the grand and unique statue of the Lord.” And suddenly I thought that lord sitting here had pushed me to visit the place. When other devotees heard Rajmata’s experiences they all were astonished.

The felicitation programme remain continued for about 45 minutes, till then the Nag Dev remained present sitting in the coil pose.

He told that one day when his son Gunvant was playing at the third floor premises of their Pavapuri building in the Byculla area, Suddenly the boy lost balance and fell on the ground from the third floor.

Various miracles

Shri Shantilalji Surana of Idore one day proceeded for the Nageshvar Teerth for the second time to obtain more historical facts and information related to this place. On the way he thought of leaving the train at Thuriya instead of Chaumahala thinking that being late he may not get the bus form there for the Teerth place. When he got down at Thuriya station, he was surprised to know that some one had given pre-intimation of his arrival. He met there 15 members of the Ujjain Sangh, who were already known to him and as such the entire atmosphere became favourable and full with pleasure. He continued talking and chating with the station master till 2.00 a.m. and after that when Shri Shantilalji went to sleep, in dream, he had discussions with a person wearing blue coloured cloths who told many facts about that Teerth in dream. When he asked his name the person after smiling suddenly disappeared. He got awaked with the sudden disappearance of the person. Next morning when he reached to the Teerth, Before the statue of Lord Nageshvar he saw one and a quarter hand sized brown coloured serpant. It is said that only the fortunates are being blessed with such a phenomenon. He collected so many historical facts about the Teerth and when he was about to leave the place, the 72 years old ex-surpanch of the village Shri Ratanlal Joshi told him that before so many years three burning forces were occassionally being seen in the fields of the farmers. sometime some invisible power was being felt crossing the roads, whose foot-steps were clearly audible. When some epidemic is being spread in the nearby area, a person wearing white cloths used to take rounds of the village ridding a horse and due to that this village never faced the fury of any epidemic. There is a small well, nearby the temple premises, which was known by the name of ghee ki Bavadi. The water of this well is clean and good for health and is available just five feet deep the ground level. It is so said that eyes of so many persons were corrected and they could gain visiblity using this water. So many lepers were being freed from leprosy by the use of this water. Previously this water was also being used as ghee. Centuries back the Uninterrupted flame of the lamps placed before the statue of Lord’s feet was kept burning by the water of this well. Whenever the devotees felt shortage of ghee, they used to fill their buckets with this water. The pilgrims were also using the water of this well as ghee for swami-vatsalya. On the occassions of Deepmalika and various other functions the lamps were kept burning by the use of this water. Althogh today these things may appeared to humorous but in the present time in the morning one can see inside the well some greesy substance floting over the water. probably this substance should have been like ghee in the previous time. Once a pair of anchor made of silver was seen floating over the water of this Ghee ki Bavadi. when the police took it’s possession it was turned into zinc. Even sometimes today also vessel and other things are seen floating and then disappearing after some time. Considering cleanliness and purity of the water, the village panchayat had closed the entrance of the well, since last so many years. Dearth of a child, diseases, snake bite and troubles of epidemics are being removed by taking a journey of this pilgrim and Darshan of Lord Shri Nageshvar Parshwanath. Various eye related diseases are being cured just by blinklessly seeing the green coloured status of the Lord.
