Jain Festivals
Dev Diwali Mahavir Jayanti
Jainism doesn`t have a single founder. The truth has been revealed at different times by a tirthankara, which means a teacher who `makes a ford` i.e. shows the way. Other religions call such a person a "prophet".

As great omniscient teachers, Tirthankaras accomplished the highest spiritual goal of existence and then taught others how to achieve it.

In what Jains call the "present age" there have been 24 tirthankaras - although there is little evidence for the existence of most of these.
