HARI - NAIGAMESIN TO TRANSPLANT THE FOETUS
It is a well-established convention that the Tirtharnkaras, being
supermen, are born only in the noble warrior (Ksatriya) caste. Bhagavan Mahavira was,however, conceived in the womb of a Brahmin lady at midnight on the sixth day of the
bright half of Asadha, as a result of his pride for superior caste in one of his previous
births. Saudharma (Indra), the Lord of gods, wanted to avert this and hence hecommanded god Hari-naigamesin to transplant the foetus from the womb of Devananda to the womb ofTrisala, the queen of Siddhartha, in the city of Ksatriyakunda audio do vice-versa.
