Munisuvrata Swami (Munisuvratanath) (मुनिसुव्रत स्वामी) was the twentieth Jain Tirthankar of the present age (Avasarpini).[1] According to Jain beliefs, he was born around 1,184,980 BCE. He became a siddha, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of his karma. Munisuvrata was born to King Sumitra Raja and Queen Padmavati Rani at Mithila in the Harivansh clan.[1] His birth date was the 15th day of the Shravan Sukla month of the Indian calendar.
