Mahavir Jayanti or Mahaveer Janma Kalyanak marks the birth anniversary of Lord Mahavir - the 24th and the last Tirthankara in Jainism. Mahavir Jayanti will be observed on April 17 this year and is considered a sacred day for the Jain community. Lord Mahavir practised and promoted non-violence and preached love and respect for all living beings. On these values, he later found a new religion - Jainism. Jains steer clear of all non-vegetarians dishes and follow the path of non-violence or ahimsa. Mahavir Jayanti is a reminder of these virtues.
Here are some messages, images, photos and greetings you can send to your friends and family wishing them a Happy Mahavir Jayanti:
"Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being." - Lord Mahavira
He practised non-violence. Mahavir Jayanti is a reminder for us to practise non-violence, lead a virtuous life. Happy Mahavir Jayanti.
“Kill not, cause no pain. Nonviolence is the greatest religion.” ― Lord Mahavira
