About The Book

Mahavira is the name, most commonly used to refer to the great sage Vardhamana, who established, what are today considered to be the central tenets of Jainism. According to Jain tradition, he was the 24th and the last Tirthankara. His courage and bravery earned him the name Mahavira. Mahavira`s preaching and efforts to spread Jain philosophy are considered the real catalyst to the spread of this ancient religion, throughout India and into the mainstream. Vardhaman`s birthday is celebrated as Mahavir Jayanti, the most important religious holiday of Jains, around the world.
