About Todi Fatehpur:

Shri Digambar Jain Atishaya Chamatkari Kshetra Todi Fatehpur is situated in Jhansi District of U. P. (India). This miraculous place is a vast beautiful temple in village – Todi Fatehpur; the temple has sky-high magnificent pinnacles attracting the pilgrims from a far distance. This Kshetra is about 600-700 years old. The principal deity Bhagwan Parshvanath’s miraculous idol is installed in this temple. This temple is known as Bada (Big) Mandir (Temple).

It is said that once upon a time Dharnendra & Padmawati appeared in this temple and made their symbol on a rock. After that they both come in this temple every month in Krishna Paksha (Fortnight without moon) from 12th day to 2nd day of Shukla Paksha (Fortnight with moon). For 5 days a Samavsharan Sabha is organized here. These days they deliver the precept of Bhagwan Parshvanath (as they heard in their Samavsharan) before the audience present there. Dharnendra & Padmawati also give the direction to get rid of worldly problems & to fulfill the dreams & desires according to Jain tradition & religious acts. They also show the ways of following/adopting traditions/acts of forth era (Chaturth Kal) in this modern age of fifth era (Pancham Kal). In this Samavsharan Sabha, for visitors/pilgrims, it is necessary to put on holy clothes of Cotton (Khadi). Only the person unknown to this rule is allowed only for first time, at the second chance this is a compulsion to wear holy Khadi.

About Dharnendra & Padmawati: - At the time of Bhagwan Parshvanath, once he was going through a dance forest, Parshvanath saw an old saint busy in Panchagni Tapa. Fire sticks were burning around him & he was sitting in the middle of fire. Shri Parshvanath at once came to know due to his eternal power of knowledge (Awadhi Gyan) that a pair of snake was burning in fire. Being merciful for burning snake pair, he told about the fact to that old saint. But instead of saving the lives of snakes he get angry on Parshvanath and he denied for the presence of snakes in burning wood sticks. Then Parshvanath came ahead & they separated the particular burning stick from fire and show him burning snakes. Shri Parshvanath recited ‘Namokar Mahamantra’ to snakes, due to the effect of ‘Namokar Mahamantra’, snakes pair felt eternal peace and after death they became Dharnendra & Padmawati in heaven. When the Parshvanath attained ‘Keval Gyan’ & became god (Arihanta Parmeshthi), in the Samavsharan, Dharnendra & Padmawati came there for worship & prayers to show the gratitude and heard the precepts (Divya Dhwani) delivered by Bhagwan Parshvanath in Samavsharan.
