Bhaktamara pranata mauli maniprabhanam
uddyotakam dalita papa tamo vitanam
Samyak pranamya jinapadayugam yugada-
valambanam bhavajale patatam jananam

When the gods bow down at the feet of Bhagavan Rishabhdeva the radiance of the jewels of their crowns is intensified by the divine glow of the nails of his feet. Mere touch of his feet absolves the beings from sins. He who submits himself at these feet crosses the mundane barriers of rebirth into the state of liberation. I convey my reverential salutation salutations at the feet of Bhagavan Rishabhdeva, the first Thrthmkara, the propagator of religion at the beginning of this era.
