Lesson 15 Jamboodweep
Q.6. Where is Himvan Mountain in the picture ?
The first island of Middle Universe (Madhya Lok) is one lack Yojan (40 crore miles) in circumference and looks like a round plate, which is known as Jamboodweep.
It is surrounded by innumerable islands and seas.
Where are we in this Jamboodweep? We are just in the Southern corner of this island. Listen! this island is divided in seven regions known as Bharat, Haimvat, Hari,Videh, Ramyak, Hairanyavat and Airavat.
These regions are partitioned by six mountains known as Himvan, Mahahimvan, Nishadh, Neel, Rukmi and Shikhari.
Bharat Kshetra is equal to one hundred & ninetieth part of Jamboodweep i.e. 526 Yojan. It is again divided in six parts, one part is called Aryakhand; Bharat Varsh (i.e. our country INDIA) is situated in the centre of Aryakhand; we & you all the people live in it. Today’s whole world is situated in Aryakhand.
The symbolic structure of Jamboodweep has been built at Hastinapur (Meerut-U.P.) in 1985. Sumeru Mountain of 101 Ft. height is situated at its centre. Tourists and devotees from all over the country and abroad come to visit this heavenly structure and understand the essence of Jain-Geography. U.P. Tourism has defined this Jamboodweep as the index of Hastinapur along with calling it as 'Man Made Heaven' with 'Unparallel Superlatives'.
