deeds that you do, which includes both, good as well as bad. The
philosophies and teachings of Lord Mahavira are universal truths that
are applicable even in the modern world that is plagued by corruption

following the path of non violence. Ultimately, it is Ahimsa that paves
way for maintaining harmony. So, if you wish to live your life in a
peaceful manner and if tranquility is what you are searching for, then
