Manibhadra Veer Sadhana


Manibhadra Veer is considered to be one of the most powerful Veers of Jainism. Many devotees worship him with utmost devotion and have had life changing experiences in their spiritual journey. He is considered to be a guardian deity of Jainism and was a Jain Shravak in his previous birth. He was a businessman named Manek Shah in his past life. Being inspired by the sermons of his guru he started a journey towards Shatrunjay and during this journey dacoits looted him and killed him in the forests of Magarwada. His body was dissected into three parts and in spite of this immense pain he was having an ardent desire to do Shatrunjay Darshan and yatra. This utmost devotion which continued till his last breath gave him a status of Indra of Vyantar Devtas.

It is also believed that after he became a Demi God, he helped his Guru who was being troubled by Ashthha Bhairavas (8 Bhairavas). Manibhadra ended this trouble by fighting these ashthh bhairavas and giving them guidance towards a right conduct. In his reverence the jainacharya established the first pind of Manibhadra Veer at Magarwada and consecutively other temples were constructed at Aglod and Ujjain as a symbolic representation of the body of his past life. In this blog we are going to talk about various information related with Manibhadra Veer that will help various sadhaks. Join us to inculcate spirituality in your life.

Manibhadra Veer Swarup

Manibhadra Veer’s idol are seen majorly in three forms. The first form is known as Pind Swarup where a simple stone is foiled with silver and vermillion and is consecrated as Manibhadra Veer. In many cases coconuts have also been found to be consecrated in such form. The second form is having a gaumukh (cow’s face) devta sitting on airavat. In his hands we get to see damru, trishul, dhwaja, bowl, japmala, sword, etc. His intrinsic form is of a Chaturbhuj dev i.e. a devta with 4 hands, but we also get to see him in forms till 16 hands signifying his vaikriya labdhi. In the third form the gaumukh is replaced by a human face and relates with his appearance in past life.

Manibhadra Veer Darshan

To be able to get darshan of Manibhadra Veer one needs to go through intense penance. However, many sadhaks and acharyas have accounted that his darshan is easy if one follows the rules of Jainism strictly. Many acharyas have done his sadhna with three days fast (attham tap) to gain his darshan. If not direct darshan many sadhaks achieve the capacity of getting his darshan indirectly with their devotion. In such cases many sadhak communicate with the veer through their third eye or get indications in their dreams. Manidhadra Veer also makes us realise his presence through the flame of diya and that of a havan. Manibhadra Veer’s sadhna makes you receptive towards other worldly entities, bhairavas and yoginis.
