Mahavira and Jain Religion

Mahavira and Jain religion are two names that go hand in hand with each other. Mahavir Swami was the last Tirthankara of the Jain religion. Also known as Arihants or Jinas, these Tirthankaras are said to be the Gods of Jains. They are just like any other human being who is born on this earth. But, the difference lies in the fact that, they attain enlightenment through self realization and meditation. Read on to know more about Lord Mahavira & Jain religion.

Lord Mahavira made an incredible contribution in laying down the right code of conduct for Jains. He taught people five main ethical concepts, which are as follows:

  • Nonviolence (Ahimsa) - he taught his people to follow the path of non violence and live harmoniously with each other.
  • Non-attachment (Aparigraha) - he asked people to completely detach themselves from the worldly materialistic life.
  • Truthfulness (Satya) - he always preached people to speak the truth and not to deceive anyone.
  • Chastity (Brahmacharya) - he taught people not to indulge in sensual pleasure.
  • Non-stealing (Asteya) - he taught people not to keep an eye on other's property.
