Artful Stories: Mahavira—The Hero of Nonviolence
Under the image of a painting of the Jain cosmic man, children will hear the story of Mahavira, the twenty-fourth spiritual leader of the Jain religion, who was born a prince in India more than 2,600 years ago. He gave up his earthly possessions and lived a life devoted to teaching peace, compassion, and forgiveness, inspiring Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and many others in nonviolence. Children will use beautiful papers to create cards to give as gifts in this season of peace and kindness.
For preschoolers and kindergarteners with an accompanying adult.
