Mahavira Nirvan Diwas also known as Mahavir’s Nirvan Kalyanak Divas commemorates the day on which Lord Mahavira, the 24th and last Jain Teerthankar attained the soulfull bliss of Nirvana.
Mahavir Nirvan Diwas is celebrated on the amavasya of the Ashwin month of Hindu calendar, hence coincides with Diwali day.
On the dawn of Ashwin amavasya Lord Mahavir attained his nirwan in 527 B.C. Bhagavan Mahavira discarded the body and the bondage of all Karmas on that night of Diwali, at Pavapuri and attained Mukti or deliverance.
On this day many Jains visit Jain temples in the city on the occasion. You can also send these Happy Mahavir Nirvana Diwas Messages to all and spread preaching of Lord Mahavira.
In 2017, Mahavir Nirvan Diwas will be celebrated on 19th October 2017.
