MAHAVIRA

Many great religious leaders have been born in our country. Of these Mahavira is one of the greatest.

He lived nearly 2500 years ago. He was born at Kshatriyakund, in Bihar State.

His father was a king called Siddhartha.  His mother was Trishala Devi. She was the sister of King Chetak of Vaishali.

When Mahavira was in his mother’s womb, the wealth of the family grew, So they named him "Vardhamana". This word means "growing".

Vardhamana was born on the thirteenth day of the bright half of Chaitra.

Very early in life he learnt all that a king should know.

He became not only learned, but strong of arms, too.
