Namotthunam
by Unknown, translated by Manish Modi
Namotthunam (meaning obeisance) also known as Sakra Stava is recited during Samayika being part of main Avasyaka sutra of Jain prayer. It is also known as Sakra Stava because it was receited by Sakra Indra, the king of the Gods in obeisence of the Omniscient Gods: The Siddhas and Arihantas.[1] [2]
