Long Description

Mother of Ṛṣabha, the first Jina of the present age. A kṣatriya woman, she has the auspicious dreams that indicate the birth of a future Jina while she is pregnant. Śvetāmbaras believe that she was the first person to be liberated in this era but Digambaras hold that the first liberated person was either her son Bāhubali or one of her grandsons.
