Mallinātha (मल्लिनाथ) is another name for Malli, the nineteenth Tīrthaṅkara (Janism recognizes 24 such teachers or Siddhas). Her colour is blue (nīla), according to Aparājitapṛcchā (221.5-7). Her height is 25 dhanuṣa (a single dhanuṣa (or, ‘bow’) equals 6 ft), thus, roughly corresponding to 46 meters. Her emblem, or symbol, is a Kalaśa.

Mallinātha’s father is Kumbha and her mother is Prabhāvatī. It is an ancient Jain practice to worship the Tīrthaṅkara’s parents in various rites, such as the pratiṣṭhāvidhi, according to the Ācāradinakara (14th century work on Jain conduct written by Vardhamāna Sūri).

context information

Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
