Story #11 Vastupal & Tejpal


In the glorious country of Gurjar (Gujarat), King Veerdhaval ruled the state of Dholka. Aashraj, a minister in the court of King Veerdhaval, was a follower of Jain religion. He lived with his family in the village of Sunhalak. His wife was Kumardevi and together they had three sons and seven daughters. Amongst his children, due to the pious deeds in their previous lives, Vastupal and Tejpal had built righteous merit which was instrumental in bestowing on them great intelligence and virtues, right from childhood. Such was their love for each other and their unwavering faith in the religion set forth by the Lord, that they became a cause of envy for everyone.
