In Jain tradition anyone has the power to be a god, but every now and then there are a few special gods that are born into this world.
These are known as the Tirthankars. They spread their knowledge and wisdom around the world, so that many others can follow their path to true happiness.
This is the story of the twenty-fourth and last Tirthankar of this time cycle –Lord Mahavir.
£1 from every Mahavir book bought from the website goes to the Anthony Nolan trust.
