The Physical Power of a Tirthankar: A Mythical Compilation

A Tirthankar is the exposition of all dormant powers in a being. He is infinitely powerful. In the mythological literature of Jains, this power has been calculated as follows-

  • A bull is as powerful as 12 warriors.
  • A horse is as powerful as 10 bulls.
  • A bufallow is as powerful as 12 horses.
  • An elephant is as powerful as 15 bufallows.
  • A lion is as powerful as 500 elephants.
  • An octoped is as powerful as 2000 lions.
  • A Baldev is as powerful as 1 million octopeds.
  • A Vasudev is as powerful as 2 Baldevs.
  • A Chakravarti is as powerful as 2 Vasudevs.
  • A king of serpent gods is as powerful as 100000 Chakravartis.
  • An Indra is as powerful as 10 million kings of serpent gods.
  • The power of innumerable Indras is significant as compared to that of the small finger of a Tirthankar.
