Synopsis

Mahavira is a story of a young prince who was destined to teach peace and non-violence. He was born in India and his name was Varhhaman. As he grew he learned through books and wanted to become a monk. He acquired knowledge through his spiritual journey and achieved the three spiritual jewels. In the Jainism faith they were called right faith, right knowledge and right conduct. He loved all living things. He had no fear. Others in later years that practiced peace were Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King.
