Lord Mahavira’s life is an inspiration for all.
During his lifetime, he taught the virtues of non-violence, truth, chastity, non-attachment and leading a moral and principled life.
Lord Mahavira’s childhood name was Vardhamana. He was born in into a royal family in present-day Bihar.
On Mahavir Jayanti special programmes, prayer meets, processions are organised as a reminder to follow the lessons he preached during his lifetime.
Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being.
Anger begets more anger, and forgiveness and love lead to more forgiveness and love.
Do not deprive someone of his livelihood. This is a sinful tendency.
All breathing, existing, living, sentient creatures should not be slain, nor treated with violence, nor abused, nor tormented, nor driven away.
Kill not, cause no pain. Non-violence is the greatest religion.
In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self.
Live and allow others to live; hurt no one; life is dear to all living beings.
Start the practice of self-control with some penance; begin with fasting.
The soul is the central point of spiritual discipline.
Happy Mahavir Jayanti to all!
Moovit wishes you happy and safe traveling!!
