Today is Mahaveer Jayanti.  So here comes the description of Jain community’s most important festival – Mahaveer Jayanti. Which is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Vardhman Mahaveer, who is 24 th Thirthankar of Jain religion. Holy Insight of Lord Mahaveer “treat people like you want to be treated by them”. “Ahimsa generates Ahimsa”. “But one should be so balanced and strong by mind, that even if someone hurts you by thoughts, you should give back just love which can be called motherly concern or the love for humankind.” These messages are circumvented by Jain Community’s last thirthankar Lord Mahaveer. The fiesta is celebrated with all grand preparations with a holy cradle procession of Lord Mahaveer, who propagated non-violence & spread the message of “Live and Let Live.” On the 13 th moon of Hindu new year (chaitra month), Mahaveer jayanti is celebrated, which is also called “Mahaveer Janma Kalnayak”. There are two groups of thinking caps who claim their own estimated dates about the birth of this great yogi.  According to the Digambar section of Jain community (the whole community is divided into 2 sections – Digambar & Shwetambar), Mahaveer was born on 615BC & Shwetambar part says its 599 BC in a district  Kundalagrama , Vaishali (Bihar) Holy Insight of Lord Mahaveer The mythologic legend says that Devnanda, the original mother of Mahaveer conceived him, but God transferred the embryo into Trishala. Shwetambar sect of religion says that mother of Mahaveer had 14 auspicious dreams before the great man came into the world, where as Shwetambars vouch for 14 dreams. The list of dreams along with the interpretations is given below. (source: jainuniversity.org) 1. Elephant: says that her son will establish a spiritual reign. 2.
