In Jainism, Puṣpadanta ((Sanskrit: पुष्पदन्त), also known as Suvidhinatha, was the ninth Tirthankara of the present age (Avasarpini). According to Jain beliefs, he became a siddha and an arihant, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its karma.
Puṣpadanta was born to King Sugriva and Queen Rama at Kakandi (modern Khukhundoo, Deoria, Uttar Pradesh) to the Ikshvaku dynasty. His birth date was the fifth day of the Margshrsha Krishna month of the Indian calendar. In the tradition started by Rishabha, the ninth Tirthankara who re-established the four-part sangha was Puṣpadanta.
