Sumatinatha was the fifth Jain Tirthankara of the present age (Avasarpini).[1] According to Jain beliefs, he became a siddha, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its karma.


In his previous incarnation, Sumatinatha was an Indra in the Jayanta Vimana.[2]

Sumatinatha was born to Kshatriya King Megha (Meghaprabha) and Queen Mangala (Sumangala) at Ayodhya in the Ikshvaku dynasty. His birth date was the eighth day of the Vaisakha shukla month of the Hindu calendar.[1]
