Jai Jinendra children. Today, we are going to tell you the very interesting story of Lord Bahubali. Today we are going to tell you the very interesting story of Lord Bahubali. Lord Bahubali was very brave, strong and handsome. Lord Bahubali was very brave, strong and handsome. Bharat and Bahubali were brothers. and their father was king Rishabhdev. Before becoming a monk, King Rishabhdev made his elder son- Bharat, the king of Ayodhya. and made the younger son Bahubali, the king of Podanpur. and made younger son Bahubali, the king of Podanpur. After becoming the king, and after some time, Bharat Kumar received three good news First news was – Lord Rishabhdev achieved supreme knowledge (keval Gyan). Second good news was – One special, powerful and divine wheel of gems had appeared in his army’s arms and weapons store. What is “divine wheel gemstone”? (Divya Ratna Chakra) Divine wheel is considered as a very powerful weapon. and whichever king has this, that king is known as “Chakravarti” (supreme Leader) That king becomes super powerful. Rest of the kings accept him as their king And what was the third good news? The third good news was – A very beautiful baby boy was born in his family. Okay, now tell me which happy news was celebrated first by king Bharat? king Bharat first celebrated the religious news. king Bharat first celebrated the religious news. First he rose from his throne and moved 7 steps ahead and bowed in front of Lord Rishabhdev. Then, he went to Lord Rushabhdev’s samosharan (divine preaching place). and did grand worship(puja). with what? With eight types of materials After that, he returned to his kingdom. and went to the weapons store. which is also called armamentarium. (armament) where the divine wheel appeared. and then, he celebrated the birth of his baby boy. After that Chakravarti king Bharat started off for the greatest victory in all directions (Digvijay) “Digvijay” means “Dig” means directions and “Vijay” means victory. means all the kings in all the directions should accept Bharat as their king or be ready to fight with him. All the other kings accepted Bharat as their king. All the other kings accepted Bharat as their king. After winning all the states, when Chakravarti Bharat came back to his own state Ayodhya, then, his divine wheel stopped at the door of his palace. It was not entering inside the palace. Because there was one king, who had not accepted Bharat as his king. who had not accepted Bharat as his king. All the brothers of Bharat had taken “Diksha” and had became monks. But his younger brother, King of Podanpur Bahubali had not accepted Bharat as his king till now. because of this, the divine wheel didn’t enter inside the palace. Bahubali said that his father king Rishabhdev has given equal reign to all the brothers. give equal reign to all the brothers. Then, it is is very unfair that Bharat becomes the ruling emperor and other kings should be under him. Because of this, the army of Bharat and Bahubali got ready to fight with each other. the army of Bharat and Bahubali got ready to fight with each other. But the intelligent ministers of both kings suggested that, There would be lots of violence if there is a fight between both the armies. Only the two brothers should fight and take a decision between themselves. and not involve the armies. Everyone decided that there would be 3 kinds of fights between Bharat and Bahubali to decide the winner. First fight is “Water Fight” They were going to have fight in the water. Second, “Eye fighting” means they were going to look into each other’s eyes and the one who blinks first, would loose the fight. and third will be “mallayudh” means wrestling. To see the fight between two super powerful brothers, lots of people and kings gathered there and voice of “Jai Jai” “win win” rose from both sides. and voice of “Jai Jai” “win win” rose from both sides. Everybody was wondering who will be the winner? You are also thinking like that! Aren’t you? Health and Height of Bahubali is far more than universal king Bharat. Health and Height of Bahubali was far more than the Chakravarti king Bharat. Because Bahubali had very good deede in his past life. When they started the water fight in the big pond, Bharat was shorter than Bahubali. and he was not able to throw water on the face of Bahubali. and Bahubali was repeatedly splashing water on Bharat. In this fight, Bahubali became the winner. and then, it was time for the sight competition. Here also Bharat was not able to look at Bahubali by keeping his eyes upwards for a long time Because Bahubali was taller than him. and in this fight also, Bahubali won. Now it was time for the final power fight That was wrestling. That was wrestling. King was super furious with his defeats and he wanted to defeat Bahubali at any cost. In wrestling both were trying very hard to defeat each other. But Bahubali was more powerful. He lifted king Bharat up in the sky in his hands. Every one was chanting victory for Bahubali. Bharat was very ashamed and angry with this defeat. In anger, he threw his divine wheel towards Bahubali. Every one was shocked by this and thought that this wheel would kill Bahubali now. But! That wheel, after moving around Bahubali came back to Bharat and stopped. You know why? Because this divine wheel never works on family members. Then Bahubali started thinking, What did my big brother do to get the kingdom? Because of this kingdom, two brothers fought with each other Kingdom brings suffering. All the sensory pleasures, status and kingdom, all are temporary. All are transient. And Bahubali felt detached towards all the worldly attachments Bahubali wanted to go in the search of real peace. and real duty where he could win over his anger, his greed , his ego He felt detached from this world For the purity of his sole, he removed all his clothes and ornaments and left behind his entire kingdom and became sky-clad (Digamber) monk. and become sky-clad (Digamber) monk. and started practicing austerity and meditating about the soul For one whole year, he practiced severe austerity by standing on his feet. During this period, many vines wrapped around his body. Birds created their nests on his head. Birds created their nests on his head. Dust stuck around his legs. and snakes and ants made houses in his body. and snakes and aunts made houses in his body. But Bahubali steadily went on with his meditation. In this way by practicing austerity and meditation He achieved supreme knowledge (kewal gyan) and he destroyed all his karma and became Siddha Bhagwan So, all of us will also leave the worldly riches and make liberation as the goal of our lives Like Bahubali did. Jai Jinendra.
