" ભૂતકાળમાં ગળીયા બળદને જોઇને જીવ વૈરાગ્ય પામી જતો. અને આજે? પોતે ગળીયા બળદ જોવા થઈ જાય તોય સંસારનો રાગ ઘટતો નથી. "

Gandhars

Gandharas (Main Disciples) of 24 Tirthankaras and Guru Gautam Swami.

What is a Gandhara ?

Gandhara means main disciple of Lord Tirthankaras. He composes the religion of Lord Tirthankaras in the form of ‘Sutra’ a formula. If Lord Tirthankara is maker of a religion, Gandhara is leader of four-fold Sangh and he is responsible for well being of the entire Sangh his own disciples etc.

Gandhara is next in order after Lord Tirthankara. That is why he is Tirth embodied. In no time, they can compose the Agama scriptures. And all Lord Tirthankaras _______ the Gandhara with the total responsibility of the religion whereas, Tirthankaras are 24 and twenty four only, the number of Gandharas are never so fixed.

For 24 Tirthankaras, the number of Gandharas have been 1452. Gandhara is one who holds the Gana – the group. Even for Ganpati, the same meaning is attached but unlike Ganpati, Gandharas not considered as God. At the best, they Guru of Gurus - A perfect Guru or the prime Guru.
