    Jain Tirthankar Santinath
   Symbol of Lord Santinath
   The sixteenth Tirthankara of the Jain religion, Santinath, was born to the King Vishavsen and Queen Achiradevi of Hastinapur. It is said that as soon as he entered the womb of his mother, incurable diseases were cured, and peace and happiness prevailed throughout the land. Because of this, he came to be called Santinath ('peacemanker').When Shantinath was very young, he became expert in the use of many weapons. These skills enabled him to become a king at a very young age. Eventually, he became known as Chakarvarti ('King of Kings'). He enjoyed his kingdom and its riches for thousands of years. One day, however, he saw his own aging reflection in a mirror and realized that this body was not as young and beautiful as it used to be. Thus he came to realize that all the riches and even man's body itself are not eternal. At that moment he was inspired to become an ascetic.
  He became enlightened on the eleventh moonlight night of Paush (Feb-March). For many years he traveled from city to city, spreading the message of peace, non- violence, and harmony. Finally, he achieved Nirvana on the mountain of Sammed Shikhar (Bihar). His symbol is a deer (Mriga). He is considered a god with powers to bestow peace and happiness.
  Lord Santinath
