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.

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