Shri Osiya Mataji, Osiya


There was a Dhar state in Malwa. Prithvipal Pawar was ruling there. In his 16th generation there were two princes named Joban and Sachhu. Both the princes attacked Jalore. The king of Jalore took help of the Rathores of Kannoj, so the war became furious.

When there was no result even after a long time, Pawar princes became tired and began to think of a remedy. Fortunately Khartar Gachha Acharya Shri Jinvallabh Suri arrived near by village. On the request of the princes the Acharya charmed Bahufana Parshvanath shatrunjaya mantra. He gave the mantra to the princes. As instructed the princes charmed the mantra 12000 times, and then sat on their horses and attacked with full force. As a result the enemies fled away leaving the arms behind. The princes collected the arms and won Jalore.

When the king of Kannoj, Raja Jaichand heard about it, he called the princes, and appointed them as his Ministers.

On their return journey to Dhar, they searched the Acharya. They came to know that the Acharya had passed away and Jindutta Suri has replaced him so they went to him and adopted Jainism to become oswal. As they got success by charming Bahufana Parshvanath Mantra their gotra was named Bahufana, which became Bafna. It is also said that since the Acharya passed away they became fatherless (Bapna) so they were named Bapna.

It is also said that the Bafna who were among the 18 gotras of Acharya Ratnaprabh Suri amalgamated in this gotra. Joban and Sachhu had 37 sons, and the separate gotras were named as per the names of the princes.

King Joban's son Sanwat was a great warrior, and became the commander-in-chief of the Prithviraj Chauhan's army. The emperor of Kabul attacked Prithviraj 6 times and each time Sanwatji defeated him and the sixth time he brought all the Muslim arrested army in female dress. So Prithviraj Chauhan honoured him with the title of NAHATA, and it became his gotra.

Ahaipal was the son of Sanwat. He was also a great warior. Fatehpur Navab honoued him with the title of RAIJADA, and it became the gotra.

The sons of Jobanji settled in the villages Maroth, Mithadi, and Kuchera so they were named Marothia Mithadia, and Kucheria.

Kuldevi of these gotras is Shri Osiya Mataji, Osiya.
