Celebrating Mahavir Bhagwan’s Life – 6 April 2020

Mahavir Janma Kalyanak is one of the most important festivals for our Jain community. It is when we, Jains, celebrate the birth of our 24th Tirthankara, Bhagwan Mahavir.
He inspired us to seek out our divine nature, the soul. Many of us would know the following quote:
Just as a mighty mango tree is hidden within the stone of the mango, so O man, divinity itself is hidden within you. Rest not until you uncover it.”  Lord Mahavir.Considering the current circumstances and respecting the restrictions imposed by the UK Government, Young Jains decided to organise this event online.

An estimated four hundred plus joined the event, making this event a memorable experience for all of us. This was way beyond what we had imagined.

Everyone was spellbound by the magical performance of singers and storytellers. This event was made possible only because of the enthusiasm shown by participants, singers, storytellers and organisers.
