In Jainism, a Tirthankar is a human being who achieves enlightenment (perfect knowledge) through asceticism and who then becomes a role-model teacher for those seeking spiritual guidance. A Tirthankar is a special sort of arihant, who establishes the fourfold religious order consisting of monks, nuns, laymen and laywomen after achieving omniscience. Every thirthankar revitalise the Jain order. A Tirthankar is so called because he is the founder of a Tirth (literally, 'ford'), a Jain community which acts as a ford across the river of human misery. After achieving enlightenment, a Tirthankar shows others the path to enlightenment. The Tirthankar's religious teachings form the Jain canons. The inner knowledge of all Tirthankars is perfect and identical in every respect, for the teachings of one Tirthankar do not contradict those of another.Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
