The great piece of a immortal art. One can feel the love and wisdom, radiating from the face of Lord Mahavir. one wonders whether the great Tirthankara himself has blessed the picture to this perfection. Transferred from the womb of Brahmini, by lord  indra, to the womb of Kshatriyani Trishala, Vardhamana was born in Royal Palace of King Siddhartha at midnight on the thirteenth day of the brighter half of the month of Chaitra in 599 B.C. the birth of future Jina was foretold to the mankind by the 23 Tirthankaras, preceding Lord Mahavir.

After the renunciation of Royal Comfort, that transformation of Vardhamana Into Mahavir took twelve painful years of tolerance and search for knowledge . At the end of thirteenth year of his wandering, mahavira attained ultimate knowledge while meditating under a Shala tree and became Omniscient. The essence of Lord Mahavir's teachings is - "the way to salvation is through self- discipline, mediation and ascetic practices". The divinations are the blessings to all creatures in the world. The picture of also contains miniature paintings of events in the life of  Lord Mahavir.

The Jain epic - Kalpa Sutra - relates a tender and magnificently great soul's Journey towards the truth and by that to the emancipation of mankind. This heart-rending story with high human drama, originally drawn in Gujarati style of the western India, is reverentially reproduced for the connoisseur's collection.

This painting recaptures  the story of Ahimsa and cruelty to none. Neminath, in his bridegroom's robes, along with Balaram and Shamkumar leads the marriage procession.As the pomp and pageantry unwinds itself, Neminath notices a herd of goats and deer, tied  up for Killing for the weeding feast. and the meat to be served to the bridal party in their honour. Neminath is pained at such cruelty and forthwith renounces meat eating.

As the pomp and pageantry unwinds itself, Neminath notices a herd of goats and deer, tied  up for Killing for the weeding feast. and the meat to be served to the bridal party in their honour. Neminath is pained at such cruelty and forthwith renounces meat eating.

A great moral outstandingly told in a great story. The gold, blue, red and green  combination leads the mankind towards softer and higher planes of thinking - vegetarianism as a cult and religious principle. This miniature is an artistic salute to Sri Neminath and his great principle. This painting by a great soul and sensitive artist, is a befitting tribute to Neminath - who renounced this colourful world and a became a Jain Sanyasi.

Reproduced from the 15th century Jain manuscript this reprint is serigraphed on Eco- friendly recycled handmade paper. A centre-piece for a thoughtful rasika's room - drawing, pooja or officer room.
