In this very state of
Bharat, there are two cities with the same name Mathura. One is in the
north and the other is in the south.
Then a certain rich traders
son from the northern Mathura set off on a pillgrimage towards the
This trader's son found a
friend in a wealthy man in the southern Mathura. So he invited him for
food as this is the first rule to maintain and increase friendship.
Now when the traders son
sat to have his food the wealthy man's sister named Aanni arrived there
with a fan to fan him and to serve him appropriately.
This trader's son could not
control his amorous descres when he manifested the mind - blowing beauty
of Aani from her head to her feet.
So the traders son asked
for Aanni's hand in marriage. At this proposal her brother replied that he
would allow her to go along with him on a condition that he would have to
stay there tell her first son is born.
This condition was accepted
by the trader's son so they were married. The trader's son began having a
peaceful life at his brother in law's house. One day due to his presence
in a family life, his wife became pregnant.
Here he received a letter
from his mother and father. Which said that the continous flow of tear
from the eyes has complelled blindness to inflict pain upon their eyes.
So adderssing him as their
son asked him to return back home at once if he intends to see them alive
the son read these lines with tears burimming in his eyes.
Aammi manifesting the
forlorn tearful sight of her beloved asked him the reason for this
sadness. But she did'nt get any reply. so she herself read the letter and
said to her beloved to keep aside his sadness as everything would be fine
in no time at all.
Then Aanni mentioned this
matter to her parents. So they send Aanni along with him to her in laws
place, when on the way itself Aanni gave birth to a baby boy.
She knew that his parents
would name the child so she didn't name it because noble son's speak only
according to their father's will.
The servants used to call
the child as Aanikaputra. so when they reached home, the parents too named
the child as Aannikaputra.
Aanikaputra began growing
up in his father's house as the growing phases of the moon. So He began
growing up as an intoxicated boar enters a forest of youthood.
Having committed a few
vinyl sins, Aanikaputra in his youth itself renouncited his desires of
passion and thus attained monastism. He then became an Aacharya and began
wandering about on this earth.
One day as he was wandering
about, he happened to come on the banks of river Ganges where a city named
Pushpebadra had taken its place in its laps. Here a king named Pushpeketu
and his queen named puspevati used to reside.
This queen pushpevati gave
birth to twin a boy and a girl at the same time who loved each other a lot
as the kids of a gamini (yuglic) would love eacho these.
So manifesting this unusual
sight the king thought to himself that if he separates them then they are
bound to die so he decides to the tie a matrimonial knot between the two
so they can start a family life.
So once the king puspetetu
called an assembly of his subjects in order to escape from their
slanderous criticism and questional them as to whose at would belong if
ever diamonds were to be found.
The whole assembly answered
that the diamonds would belong to the king so the king then said that he
would make them tie a knot of matrimony who are just like gold and
diamonds blended together.
Even after the queen's
reluctance, the king had a grand marriage ceremony of the twins, pushechul
Pushechul and pusphechula
who loved eachother a lot began living a life of happiness. The lay woman
pushpevat, who began nuturing desires of monastism, attained nunhood and
then was incarnated as a very wealthy (parmadhrick) god in heaven after
After the death of king
pushpekete his son puspechul ascended the throne then his, mother who had
become a very wealthy god in heaven manifested that pushechula loves her
husband abundantly through her Aavdi gyan.
The king pushpachool having
been detached to avoid the hell sufferings used to show the hell sufferers
hence afraid of the seene pushpachoola said to him.
At dawn the king questioned
the buds. The reply that was given was the same as what the Aachaya
Aanikaputra had said.
He said that hell is always
dominated by darkness. It is an utterely dangerous place of hunger thirts
disease and of possessed souls. The mere thought of this ask some sight
would send a chill of fear into our spines.
Then pusphechula asked the
acharya s to what you seen in her dream as he knows the actual meaning of
the dream. At this he replied saying that he speakes as a mere mouthpiece
of the lord Aarihant.
The mother who was a very
wealthy god showed pushpechula after some lapse of time the devlok
(heaven). The buds were questioned again. At this they gave a very
Then Aanikaputra Aacharya
gave them a whole discription of devlok (heaven). Then pyspechula sked the
acharya the way to attain this heavely bliss and as to how one does not
easily go to hell.
At this the acharya told
her about the regulations of a nun. Then the queen asked her husbands
permission to attain monastism. At this the king replied that she will
then have to ask for food (bhiksha) athis house.
Having accepted the
condition of the king the pushpachula attained monastismm then the
Aanikaputra acharya send his disciples ahead of him and he stayed along as
he began loscing the stamina in his thighs.
Pushechula used to bring
the food from the king's residence and the with a clear consience used to
offer it to her spiritual instructor then after a lapse of time she
attained kaval gyan.
Even after attaining
keyalgyan, one should not forget the manners and respect one should bestow
on others so keeping this rule in mind puspechula began offering proper
food for that moment to the acharya after a little thought.
Addressing her as a
daughter Aanikaputra acharya said that she happened to know the way to
destroy cough whenever it starts harrescing so in the same way he asks her
whether she happens to know the right food to be given when a person has a
certain ailment and at the right time.
When other monks said,
"Guru deva! when the clouds were raining this nun has brought food and
water on this Gurndeva asked, 'Oh nun! what is it ?' she replied," I have
brought quiet acitt water.'
Oh sadhriji? how can you
differentiate pure or not when the clouds are in the say? she replied, "I
know it because of having absolute knowledge.
He exclaimed with
lamentation that he had insulted a kevalgyani this thought made him all
the made results then the nun said that as and when the river Ganges will
settle down he too shall attain kevalgyan.
Having heard the words of
the nun the acharya stood up at once as it is not appropriate for a person
to be lazy when he is about to attain something marvelous. He than sat in
a boat in the ganges that was decorated by the people.
Now when the acharya
anikaputra sat in one corner of the boat thus the boat began to sink
people through acharya in water.
Antikaputra acharya a foe
of the past- birth had borne (held) a nailed weapon in water. He having
been injured by the said weapon through the spiritual contemplation
acquired the exeranla truth.
Having attained Kevalgyan
the acharya became a siddhe the gods began giving ample of reverence and
respect to the body of the acharya. This place in the state became a very
famous pilgrim spot named prayog.
In the waters of the Ganga
acqua- creatures bit up the body. His body was drawn by the waves to the
banks of the river.
By chance a seed of patil
tree stuck to his right gum (tooth). That seed in the course of time
penetrated the top part of the head and grew into a tree.
The king - Udayi having been dejected because of the
sad demise of his father - kunik established a city named patil putra in
place of the tree in ever lasting memory.
In this way over prosperous Antikaputra Acharya
according to the need got incarnated for the
interest of the blessed souls.
