Jain’s believe in soul, salvation the other world, good deeds, sins, action and religion. They admit that good deeds lead to happiness and sins to misery. So every soul should store Punya by performing good deeds. Those who desire to become supreme-being Paramatma should devote themselves to sacred deeds and devotional worship of Vimsati-sthanaka. A would be Tirthankara attains sufficient Punya to be Paramatma by worshipping some of these twenty elements less or more with deep devotion in the third birth prior to his last birth. Assuredly a soul cannot become a Tirthankara without this worship.
