Jina Sasana Devatas

(Demi gods and godesses of Jains)

Jina Dharma flowed as Divyadwani from the face of the Thirthankara Parameshtin enshrined in the Samavasaran. Thirthankara Bagawan's primary desciples, the Ganadhara Parameshtin gave unto Acharyas the Agamas as propounded by the Thirthankara and Acharyas rendered then in scriptural form for the benefit of the future generations to come. Thus such Agamas are "Sasanas". Sasana Devatas worshipped and rendered services to the Thirthankaras at the Samavasaran and on Moksha of the Thirthankaras continue to serve Jina Dharma and its followers

Following pages provide images and descriptions for each of the 24 pairs of Sasana Devatas. Sasana Devatas are also called Yakshas and Yakshis.
