About the Book

Tainism is one of the ancient J religions of India and an integral part of Indian culture. Lord Mahavira was the twenty-fourth Tirthankara of this religion. His sermons have been extensively documented in the Jain Agamas. His powerful teachings shed light on the philosophy of Jainism as well as on the moral and spiritual values for everyday life. His teachings about compassion and non-violence can be a major driving force in the present times. In today's world, which is ruled by the hunger for power and possessiveness, Mahavira's teachings need to be spread far and wide so that human beings may be inspired with humanity and humane values once again.
