Resurrection of Lord Chandraprabha
Lord Chandraprabh was brought up in a royal way but he always remained apathetic towards the ordinary delights and princely grandeur of life. When he attained adulthood his father crowned him and he thus ascended the throne. Chandraprabh was a kind hearted and pious king who successfully ruled for some time. After a short time he left his kingdom and became an ascetic in the prime of his youth. Within three months of dedicated divine practices he gained much knowledge. For a considerably long period he proceeded to enlighten the people and spread the true religious faith. Gradually when his end approached he went to Sammetshikhar and after a month of long fasting and meditation got enlightened and achieved nirvana.
