Description

The Jain religious tradition traces its origins to the first jina or conqueror, Adinatha, whose name means the original lord. Adinatha is accepted as the first of 24 tirthankaras, human beings who conquered desire and anger to reach a state of complete liberation. The 24 tirthankaras demonstrate that all beings have the potential to achieve liberation by following the path of absolute non-violence.
