$72.00

The beautiful brass figure of Bhagawan Mahaveer is given a splendid treatment. Plain but beautiful, the figure reveals a deep sense of austerity and simplicity. Some nice carvings mark the otherwise simple and plain brass figure. His elongated ears, sharp nose, even toes are given a minute and detail touch.


Bhagwan Mahavir's teachings epitomize quintessence of the culture of compassion, non-violence, equanimity and understanding the viewpoint of others.


Born in a Kshatriya family in B.C. 599 at Kundagram in the Republic of Vaishali (present Basadh in Muzzafarpur District of Bihar), his father Siddharth, a Kashyap Gotri, was a Kshatriya chief.


Vardhman, his original name, gave up the lap of royal luxury in search of the truth. He had a strong urge of renunciation of worldly attachments. On November 11, B.C. 570 at the age of 30, he left the palace and after stringent penance att the age of 42, he attained all knowledge-infinite knowledge (Ananta-Jnana), "knowledge free from Karmic interference" - Keval-Jnana, which has no limitations of time and space, dawned on him. He got solutions for all ills s connected with the life and the universe which occur to any inquisitive soul. He fully comprehended the Six Substances (dravya) and Seven Principles (tattva) whereby one gets explained the nature of all the objects and their activities.


After having attained popularity as a great spiritual teacher, Mahavir attained Nirvana (salvation) on October 15, B.C. 527 at Pavapuri in Bihar at the age of 72. The occasion was celebrated as the Dipavaii festival, and Vir Nirvan Samvat commenced from that date.


Mahavir's contribution to practice of Ahimsa (non-violence), compassion, equanimity, understanding the viewpoint of others i.e. Syadvad and Anekant and Aparigraha (non-possessiveness) is of paramount importance.
