Write in detail about Mahaveera’s life.

Answer :

Mahavira was the 24th and the last Tirthankara of Jainism. He was also known as Vardhamana. He was an Indian ascetic philosopher and one the principal figures of Jainism. He was born into a royal family of Kshatriyas in Kundala, which is present-day Bihar. He had a privileged childhood and grew up to be a brave man and is said to have been courageous. However, at the age of 30, he realized that his luxurious life did not satisfy him. He then renounced all worldly ties and embarked on a journey to seek the ultimate truth. He endured severe penance for 12 and a half years. Until he attained “Kevala Jnana”, the highest stage of Enlightenment. He spent the next several years traveling all over India and spreading his philosophy along with the rules of religious life for Jains.
