Mahavir Jayanti commemorates the teachings of Lord Mahavira. He was a symbol of non-violence. He showed us the path of right faith, knowledge and conduct to realize liberation. He preached non-violence, honesty, chastity and detachment from material things.


हमे ना तो सर पे ताज चाहिए, ना दुनिया पे राज चाहिए
हमे तो बस आने वाले भगवान महावीर
जन्मकल्याणक में सारें जैन एक साथ चाहिए !!
जय जिनेन्द्र 🙏
