Uvasaggaharam Stotra is to pay respect to 23rd Tirthankar Bhagwan Parshvanath and seek his help in making all Upsargs vanish (In fact, the literal meaning of Uvasaggaharam is removal (har) of upsurges).
This Stotra was composed about 2,100 years ago by Shree Bhadrabahu Swami, a very powerful Jain monk.
Another powerful Jain monk was Varahmihir, could not bear to see his brother getting the Acharya position and getting more respect. Varahmihir became angry with Jains and the Jain religion on the whole.
It is said that Varahmihir after his death became a ‘Vyantar dev’ and started giving Upsarg (pain) to the Jains on earth. His actions born mainly out of jealousy and anger towards his brother Bhadrabahu Swami, brought a lot of ruin to Jains.
At such a difficult time the people approached Bhadrabahu Swami for help. Moved by their plight, Bhadrabahu Swami wrote "Uvasaggaharam.” This Stotra evoked demi-gods and they had to come to earth every time somebody read it with full concentration. This application is created from the perspective of providing the user the convenience of reciting the Uvasaggaharam Stotra while on the move.
