Happy Mahavira Jayanti

. Today we celebrate the birthday of the great Sant Satguru(and 24th Thirthankara in Jain tradition), Mahavira Bhagwan-
a true embodiment of peace and non violence (ahmisa)

"Can you hold a red-hot iron rod in your hand merely because some one wants you to do so? Then, will it be right on your part to ask others to do the same thing just to satisfy your desires? If you cannot tolerate infliction of pain on your body or mind by others' words and actions, what right have you to do the same to others through your words and deeds?

Do unto others as you would like to be done by. Injury or violence done by you to any life in any form, animal or human, is as harmful as it would e if caused to your own self."
- Lord Mahāvīra

"Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being."
- Mahavira Bhagwan
