Bhatti abheysingh was the ruler of sindh province in the 12th century. There were 1000 villages in the province. In V. 1185 Acharya shri jindutt suri was rambling in the forest of sindh. In the noon a monk of the Acharya’s group went out in search of alms. As soon as the monk entered the city, he found that a procession of king was passing through the gate. They were going for hunting. The king thought that meeting a monk was a bad omen so he shot the monk dead. But it was a miracle that the bullet became a flower and fell at the feet of the monk. The king exclainmed at this wonder. He fell at the feet of the monk. The monk said, “This magic is my Acharya’s who is sitting in the jungle, so please go in his shelter.” The King was more delighted to hear this. He thought that when the disciple was so wonderful, then his teache should be just marvelous. He immediately went into the jungle and met the Acharya and requested him to forgive him for the wrongful act. Acharya reacted to him the point that hunting is a sin. “ It is not the duty of a Kshatriya to give trouble to any creature and hunting is a sin.” The King was surprised and he wondered as to how the Acharya had come to know that we were going for hunting.
At that time a furious storm came. It rained heavily. Those were the symptoms of heavy floods in the areas adjoining the river Sindhu. It was a dangerous sign of ruination of the whole Sindh Province. The King was frightened. He requested the Acharya to do something for their safety.
The Acharya placed the condition that if all the Bhatis of Sindh Province left their cult of violence and their caste of Rajputs and became Mahajan, only then he could do the needful. The Acharya named their gotra ‘Aariya’, as he uttered word “aya hrahya” in his mantra.
In the sventh generation of King Abhaysingh was a king who agreed to the proposal of the Acharya. Then the Acharya uttered some Mantras. All were surprised to find that there was no sing of storm any more. All the Bhatis of Sindh became Mahajans. Acharya named their gotra ‘Acharya’
