Happy Mahavir Jayanti 2020 Wishes Images, Messages, Photos, and Status: The occasion of Mahavir Jayanti holds great significance for the Jain community in India and abroad. It is considered to be one of the most important religious holidays in the country. This year, it will be celebrated on April 6, which is a Monday.

It is said that Mahavir Jayanti is usually celebrated during the Hindu month of Chaitra which, as per the Gregorian calendar, coincides with the months of late March and early April. The Jain community celebrates the day which is believed to be the birthday of Lord Mahavir, a great sage or a ‘tirthankara’.

Mahavir was born in either 599 BCE or 615 BCE, as believed by the Digambar and the Swetambara schools of Jainism respectively, in Kundagram (Kundalpur in Champaran district in Bihar), to King Siddhartha and Queen Trishala. It is said that he was born in a place called ‘ahalya bhumi’ which had not been ploughed for hundreds of years.

The Jain community revers Mahavir as their key prophet, and celebrate the day by offering prayers and by fasting.

On this auspicious day, therefore, we bring you these cards that you can share with your near and dear ones, to keep the spirit and teachings of the great tirthankara alive.
