After 2 months of diksha and worldly life abandonment Lord Shreyansnath attained (kevalgyan) salvation on 15th day of the dark half of the month of Magh and constellation of Sharavan.

On the third day of the dark half of the month of Shravan, Bhagwan Shreyansnath, along with other 1000 saints was liberated and attained nirvana on Sammet Shikhar (mountain).

Shreyans Kumar was born on the twelfth day of the dark half of the month of Bhadrapad.
He had a normal princely life and ascended the throne when Vishnuraja retired. After a long reign Shreyans Kumar became a Shraman and within a short span of two months attained omniscience on the fifteenth day of the dark half of the month of Magh under a mango tree.
