6. GIRNAR SERIES

Story #7: Acharya Shantisuri

It was an auspicious dawn that winter. The Jain monk, respected Acharya Shantisuri maharaj saheb on his way to Tharapadpur had reached a village on foot. Due to entreaties from the village householders, a sermon was arranged. During the sermon, a celestial being named Nagini started dancing. Acharya saheb put some scented sandal dust hallowed by holy incantations (vasakshep) on her in order to make her sit at an appropriate place. She settled down thereafter. Thus whenever this celestial goddess used to start dancing, Acharya saheb used to put the sanctified sandal dust on her to make her move from the inappropriate to appropriate seating place.
