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 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.
