Mahavir Janma Kalyanak is the auspicious day of the birth of Lord Mahavir who was born into this world more than 2,600 years ago. Born as a Prince into the Ikshvaku Dynasty in Present day Bihar (and by the way Lord Ram also belonged to this same dynasty), he abandoned all the luxuries of royal life and at just 30 became a Jain monk in search of spiritual enlightenment. After 12.5 years of rigorous penances and meditation, he attained Kewal Gnan (Omniscience) and there after through his selfless compassion, he spread the wisdom of Jain philososphy, enlightening thousands of Indians on the attainment of one’s True and Divine nature and the transformation into eternal blissful and pure Consciousness…the essence of Jainism as we know it today.
