Sambhavanath was the third tirthankar (omniscient Jain teacher) of the present age (Avasarpini).[2] Sambhavanatha was born to King Jitārī and Queen Susena at Sravasti.[1][3] in the Ikshvaku dynasty.[2] His birth date was the fourteenth day of the Margshrsha shukla month of the Indian calendar. According to Jain beliefs, he became a siddha, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its karma.

Prayer

Svayambhustotra by Acarya Samantabhadra is the adoration of twenty-four tirthankaras. Its five slokas (aphorisms) adore the qualities of Sambhavanātha.[4]

O Lord Sambhavanātha! The worldly life appears to be transient, without a protector, sullied with the blemishes of pride and delusion, and tormented by birth, old-age and death. You had helped worldly souls attain ambrosial happiness by ridding these of the karmic dirt.

— Svayambhustotra (3-2-12)[5]
