Adbout Lord Mahavir

Lord Mahavir was born to King Siddhartha and Queen Trishala in Kundalpur of Vaishali, which is now in Bihar. After turning 30, he renounced his crown and decided to spend years in exile, away from possessive things and worldly pleasures. Mahavir Jayanti or Mahavir Janma Kalyanak is one of the most prominent festivals of the country celebrated with utmost zeal. The day falls on the 23rd day of the Chaitra month of the Hindu calendar. 

Venkaiah Naidu Wishes

Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, the Vice President of India, wished the people on the eve of Mahavir Jayanti. He called Bhagwan Mahavir as one of the most charismatic spiritual leaders to have walked the earth and asked people to draw inspiration from his life in this time of crisis caused by COVID-19.

I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to the people of our country on the auspicious occasion of Mahavir Jayanti.

Lord Mahavir is one of the most Charismatic and prominent spiritual leaders who have walked the earth. Messages of Mahavir about nonviolence, truth, honesty, selflessness, and sacrifice are timeless and full of universal kindness. Mahavir preached the gospel of universal love and maintained all living beings, including plants and animals, are equal and deserved to be treated with love and respect. We must pick inspiration from Lord Mahavir’s life, the practice of austerity, his stress on the need to adopt a positive attitude towards life and messages of love, tolerance, and peace.

When humanity is facing a challenging health crisis of the spread of COVID-19, in the face of this daunting challenge, we must remain united and endeavor to protect and heal not just ourselves but the entire world. Let us endeavor to help those less fortunate than ourselves to overcome the crippling effects of this crisis. Let us help spread the message of fraternity and humanity and, through compassion and empathy, pay tributes to the great Bhagwan Mahavir.
