Shevana Bala Gola, Sravana Belgola. The Jain Statue. I found the image while searching THE ONLINE GALLERY of The British Library httpwww. bl. uk. The full title of my etching is BAHUBALI AWAITS HIS NEXT SACRED ANOINTING IN 2018. Bahubali was the first Jain Saint to attain enlightenment, and this shrine is sacred to the followers of JAINISM. Jainism is traditionally known as JAina dharma, an Indian religion that prescribes a path of nonviolence towards all living beings. The Shravanabelagola temple is located in the Hassan district on top of Vindyagiri Hill, about 50 km Southeast of Hassan, and about 150 km Southwest of Bangalore. It is a famous pilgrimage site and contains a massive statue of Bahubali, the first Jain Tirthankara to have gained salvation. The statue is more than 1000 years old and was erected in 983 AD by Chamundaraya, a general in the army of King Rachamalla. Shravanabelagola literally means the white tank of the ascetic. Shravanabelagola temple is approached by climbing more than 600 steps, which were carved out of the rocky surface of the hillock. On entering the temple, visitors are usually awestruck by the towering statue of Bahubali, who is also known as Gomateshwara, depicted unclothed in the standing position. The 58 foot statue is considered to be the largest monolithic structure in the world, and is sculpted out of grey granite. It dominates the landscape around the area and devotees come to visit Shravanabelagola temple from near and far. Interestingly, the temple is also popular with Hindus as well. But the biggest event at the Shravanabelagola temple is the Mahamastakabisheka, an anointing festival that takes place every 12 years when scaffolding is erected to bathe the statue of with blessed holy water, milk, curd, honey, ghee, turmeric paste, sandalwood paste andother ingredients. The sculpture is then showered with silver and gold coins. The next Mahamastakabisheka is scheduled for 2018.
