Excerpt: In Jainism, Rishabh Dev ( ) or Adinatha ( ) (other names used: , Rushabh, Rushabhdev, Adinath or Adishwar or Kesariyaji- Sanskrit meaning best, most excellent) was the first of the 24 Tirthankara. He belonged to the House of Ikshwaku, which was also known as the House of the Sun. According to Jain beliefs, Rishabha was the first Tirthankar of the present age (Avasarpini). Because of this, he had the name of ?din?th - the original lord. He became a Siddha, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its karma. Statue of Jina Rishabhanatha at LACMARishabha was born to King Nabhi Raja(kulkar) and Queen Marudevi at Ayodhya in the Ikshvaku clan. According to Jain beliefs, Rishabh existed before civilization developed. He taught people agriculture, tending of animals, cooking, and more. He had one hundred and one sons (main among them Bharat Chakravati and Bahubali) and two daughters, Bhrami and Sundari. His eldest son, Bharat, was a chakravarti king and the conqueror of the known world. In the later part he attained moksha (liberation). Because he became a siddha, he is occasionally worshipped. According to Jain beliefs, in India he was named Bh?rata-varsha or Bh?rata after him. His second son was Bahubali, whose statue stands at Shravanabelagola, Karnataka as well as at Karkala. When Bharat was to become a chakravati (kings of kings) he asked his younger brother Bahubali to accept him as his king and protector. Bahubali refused, and both kings faced each other in battle.
