The Three Jewels of Jainism

- April 6, 2020


Born a prince, Mahavira renounced his worldly titles and possessions to become an ascetic. He wandered everywhere with not even a tiny piece of cloth to protect from the elements. His followers were many, including royalty. Mahavira is the founder of Jainism, built on the core principle of ahimsa or non-violence. This principle is not restricted to man alone, but to every living creature on the planet, be it fauna or flora.

On the occasion of Mahavira Jayanti, let us all try to inculcate these pearls of wisdom from the great monk.

Amar Chitra Katha’s ‘Mahavira’ is available on the Amar Chitra Katha app as well as Amazon, Flipkart, and other major e-tailers.
