ABOUT JAINISM

Jainism is the oldest living religion. It was originally founded by Bhagwan Rishaba in the pre-historical era. Rishabha was the first Jina hence he is often called Adi-natha, the first lord.He is mentioned in most of the Hindu Puranas, Markandeya, Kurma, Vayu,Garuda, Brahmanda, Varaha, Linga, Vishnu, Skandha etc.

He was the first Tirthankara (i.e. an omniscient founder), and was followed by 23 others. Bhagwan Mahavira who was the 24th and the last in the line gave shape to the present religion 2546 years ago.

The birth of Lord Mahavira was in 599 B.C. in a royal family of Vaishali. Mahavira renounced the worldly life and became an austere ascetic, practicing the five great vows of Non-Violence, truth, non-stealing, continence, and non-acquisitiveness.
