Bharat – Bahubali

Bharat   Bahubali
The idol of Bharat Chakravarti standing in deep meditation,

Bahubali’s idol is also visible here with long beard and moustache, he remained so still that birds mistook him for a tree and they built their nests in his long beard. His whole body was covered with bushes.

While doing single-combat war with elder brother Bharat, Bahubali renounced the world, but pride overtook him. ‘‘If I shall go near Lord Adinath now, I will have to bow to 98 younger brothers. So let me achieve Kevalgyan first’’.

Sadhvi Brahmi and Sundri came near him and addressed. ‘‘O, Brother ! Dismount from the elephant, if you wish Kevalgyan.’’

Hearing these words from his own sisters he was taken aback. ‘Elephant’! which kind of elephant ? Oh I am mounted on elephant of pride’’

Becoming modest, he shook off his pride and took a single step, wishing to bow to 98 younger brothers. And at that very moment, he achieved Kevalgyan. This incident is shown here in marble statues.
