In the Mombasa Jain Dersar there are pratims (idols) of 5 Tirthankar bhagavn namely:
Rushabhdev (1st), Shntinth (16th), Neminth (22nd), Prshvanth (23rd) and Mahveeraswmi
(24th). The following 5 stutis are for each of them respectively:

dimam prithiveentham dimam niShparigraham


dimam teerthantham cha ruShabhaswminam stumah
We worship Bhagavn Rushabhdev, who was the first king of the planet earth, who was the first to
renounce everything (became a sdhu) and who was the first Tirthankar (of the current
descending time cycle)

We worship Bhagavn Shntinth (whose emblem is a deer), whose speech is sweet like nectar,

the whole world clear like the full moon

ariShtanemirbhagavn bhydvoriShtanshanah
We worship Bhagavn Neminth who was born in the ydav family. He was for them just like the full
moon which enlightens the sea in a powerful way. May Bhagavn Neminth, who is like the fire
which destroys all karmas, destroy all problems and be auspicious to all

marvelous wealth (i.e. not monetary, but that wealth which no one but Tirthankars have) and who is
worthy of worship and is like a royal swan in the ocean of peace

Jineshwara is an ocean of nectar of love and peace. He is the purest of the pure. He is the
repository of great (jewel-like) qualities. He is the sun who makes the lotus of prosperity bloom. I
offer my prostrations to Jineshwara every day

Kamath was a mendicant. Parshvanath saved a snake (nag) from Kamaths sacrificial fire. Kamath was
reborn as Meghmali (lord of rain) and to take revenge he disturbed Parshvanath who was in meditation.
The snake was reborn as DharaNendra and came to the save the Lord from Meghmalis actions. The
Lord maintained perfect equanimity and showed no hatred towards Kamath (Meghmali) and no
affection towards DharaNendra (who was the snake in the previous life)
