Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind took to Twitter to greet India on the occasion.

Here are some of his teachings to live by- 

Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being. – Lord Mahavir

Kill not, cause no pain. Non-violence is the greatest religion. Lord Mahavira

Attachment and aversion are the root cause of karma, and karma originates from infatuation. Karma is the root cause of birth and death, and these are said to be the source of misery. None can escape the effect of their own past karma. – Lord Mahavira

Live and allow others to live; hurt no one; life is dear to all living beings. – Lord Mahavir

A man is seated on top of a tree in the midst of a burning forest. He sees all living beings perish. But he doesn’t realize that the same fate is soon to overtake him also. That man is fool. – Lord Mahavir

In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self. – Lord Mahavira

Start the practice of self-control with some penance; begin with fasting. – Lord Mahavir

Soul is the central point of spiritual discipline. – Lord Mahavira

Happy Mahavir Jayanti to all!
