In one kaalchakra there are two cycles – Avsarpini (regressive cycle) and Utsarpini (progressive cycle). This progressive and regressive cycle of
Jain Pad
time is applicable only to 5 Bharat kshetra (area) and 5 Airavat kshetra. We are currently in the avsarpini cycle. Every avsarpini and utsarpini
cycle has 24 different Tithankars. This cycle of avsarpini and utsarpini is continuous i.e. never ending and will be there for infinity. There have
been infinite Tirthankars in the past and will also be there in the future. As and when the dharma starts getting destroyed, a new Tirthankar is born
to revitalze the Jain dharma.

The inner knowledge of all Tīrthaṅkars, Siddhas and Kevalis is perfect and identical in every respect, for the teachings of one Kevali does not
contradict to those of another.
