Vardhamana, more famous as the Mahavira, was the twenty-fourth Jain Tirthankara. He was one of the principle figures of Jainism and a great philosopher. He was born into a royal family, but royalty and the luxurious life did not please him. He was in constant search for inner peace and spirituality so one fine day he left his home and materialistic possessions in search of spiritual awakening. Mahivira sought answers to questions that the religious practices and the gurus could not answer.
