Art Of Enlightenment 37 Surimantra Pata

Surimantra is generally worshipped by monks who aim at attaining the spiritual heights of Gautamaswami, who was one of the main disciples of Tirthankara Mahavira. There is a big lotus mandala encircling 24 Tirthankaras. On top of this circle is the sacred syllable "Hrim". Just below that panel are 16 petals containing different mantras. The second circular panel depicts images of legendary figures worthy of worshipping. Several rows of gods, and goddesses are shown in four corners, and worshippers - all are present.
