Yesterday, Jains all around the world celebrated Mahavir Jayanti – an important religious festival of Jains marking the birth of Lord Mahavira, the last Tirthankara. Following this occasion, I am posting here a moral lesson preached by Lord Mahavira. Times of India (TOI) also published this thought in an editorial column, dated March 27, 2010 (Link).
“A living body is not merely an integration of limbs and flesh but it is the abode of the soul, which potentially has anant darshana or perfect perception, anant jnana or perfect knowledge, anant virya or perfect power and anant shukla or perfect bliss.”
– Lord Mahavira
