JADA BHARATA

LONG BACK a saintly king by name Rishabha Deva ruled over this earth. He had a hundred sons. Of them Bharata was the eldest.

When Rishabha Deva became old he entrusted the rule of his kingdom to Bharata and retired to the forest to perform tapas.

Bharata on assuming rule married a girl named Panchajani and five sons were born to them. Bharata ruled the earth for a  long time in a just manner. He performed a number of yagas worshipped God in the prescribed manner and did many dharmic  acts. Thus he earned much merit.  At the forest he stayed in the hermitage of Rishi Pulaha on the banks of Gandaki river and by means of his austerities became a great sage.
