What is The Importance of Mahavir Jayanti?

Mahavir Jayanti is considered very important for the people of the Jain community. On the day of Mahavir Jayanti, people of the Jain religion take out the Prabhat Pheri ritual and procession. Lord Mahavir has established five principles for man to attain salvation, which we know as Pancha Siddhanta, these five principles are non-violence, truth, Asteya, brahmacharya, and aparigraha.

Five Principles Are Given By Lord Mahavir

Jayanti is being celebrated on 4th April 2023 Lord Mahavir had told on five precious principles in which the secret of success is hidden know what are the five principles

Truth: This principle of Lord Mahavir teaches us to go on the right path. On the path on which the foundation of truth has been laid, some obstacles definitely come. But even a rocky path can be crossed with the truth. In the end, victory will be yours. Truth is the only true element.

Non-violence: Jainism is a fundamental principle of non-violence. According to Mahavir Swami, non-violence is the ultimate religion. Mahavir ji says that all the human beings in this world. Don’t do violence to them, don’t hurt them in any way, and don’t think bad about anyone, those who adopt non-violence are successful everywhere.

Aparigraha: Aparigraha means excessive attachment to something. Mahavir Swami ji tells that it can come from living or non-living and is considered to be the biggest reason for human sorrow. Lord Mahavir says that the same attitude should be kept in both situations when things are not available. Objects and humans attach more to him, the person deviates from the goal.

Brahmacharya: This principle of Mahavir Swami ji does not mean to remain unmarried. This means that one should recognize the Brahman hidden within oneself. For this, it is necessary to give time to oneself. According to him, celibacy is the root of good, austerity, rules, philosophy of knowledge, character, restraint, and modesty.

Asteya: It means taking the things of others without permission i.e. stealing. There is theft of material things and bad thinking toward others. One should never have the sense of ‘I’. People who have the spirit of ‘Hum’ always touch heights and God also helps such people.

Lord Mahavir is worshiped on the day of Mahavir Jayanti and by remembering the teachings given to him, efforts are made to follow the principles made by him, as well as many types of religious programs are also organized on this occasion.
