Mahaveer Jayanti

Mahavir was born on the 13th day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Chaitra in 599 BC. Hence the followers of Jainism celebrate Mahavir Jayanti on this date, and this method is celebrated on 14th April. Mahavira is considered the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism. His childhood name was Vardhman. We will tell you about some special things related to the life of Mahavir.

When Mahavir Jayanti Celebrated?

According to the Panchang, this day is celebrated on the Trayodashi of Shukla Paksha, falling in the month of Chaitra. It is believed in Sanatan Dharma that he was born on this day. 

This festival falls in March or April, and it is celebrated as the birth of Lord Mahavir. On this day, a procession is taken out to please Mahavirji, worshipping him.

History of Mahavir Jayanti

Mahavir was born in a Kshatriya royal family. His father’s name was Siddhartha, and his mother’s name was Priyakarini. He renounced the extended life of the palace in his thirties. After that, he went on the path of spiritual training. 

He conquered all desires and diseases with his intense meditation. Later they started calling Vardhaman Mahavir. But his journey does not stop here. He contributed to the eradication of malpractices and superstitions in society.

Mahavira has three basic principles. It includes the first of non-violence and truth and the third of many virtues. These three principles represent the art of living. Not only who can achieve this, happiness and peace by following them in today’s stressful life. Mahavira’s non-violence is not only concerned with the body or the outside, and it is also related to the mental and inner life. Mahavir forbids mind-speech-actions and violence done by any media.

Mahavir Bhagwan said that non-violence is not only violence protecting living beings or harming animals. But if someone needs our help, then we can help him, but if he has not done so yet, that is also a kind of violence. So, if someone ever needs help, you can’t deny it.

Mahavira established four pilgrimages: Samu, Seventh, Shravaka, and Shravika, hence Tirthankara. Pilgrimage here does not mean pilgrimage to one’s soul by spiritual worship, but non-violence, the practice of helping others.

Importance of Mahavir Jayanti

Although people of Hinduism also make the festival of Mahavir Jayanti, Mahavir Jayanti is specially made by the people of Jainism. Talking about Hinduism, they were born during King Siddhartha and Queen Trishala.
