Mahavir Janma Kalyanak, also known as Mahavir Jayanti, is the auspicious celebration of the day when Trishla Mata gave birth to Lord Mahavir, over 2600 years ago.We celebrate it on the thirteenth day of the bright half of the Indian month Chaitra. It’s rather like Christmas for Jains in that both Mahavir Jayanti and Christmas celebrate the birth of people that have inspired many spiritually.
Mahavir Janma Kalayank is a celebration of the life of Mahavir Bhagwan, who is our teacher, a guru in his time. He is a Tirthankar, showing us the path to liberation from the cycle of Life and Death and how to “walk” on this path, to find the hero within ourselves, to attain Self-Realisation and eventually to attain Moksha – Abundant, Infinite, Eternal, BLISS.
