Sambhavanath was the third Jain tirthankar (omniscient teaching god) of the present age (Avasarpini). Sambhavanatha was born to King Jitārī and Queen Susena at Sravasti. His birth date was the fourteenth day of the Margshrsha shukla month of the Indian calendar. Like all arihant (omniscient beings), Sambhavanatha at the end of his life destroyed all associated karmas and attained moksha (liberation).
