Mahavira’s Quest To Find The Truth

At every step of his travels over twelve years, Sraman Vardhamana learnt a new lesson. There are unbelievable records of how he hardly ate, how he fasted for long periods, how his focus was only on finding answers. As he moved about in search of answers, his loin cloth, the only garment he was wearing, fell off sometime, somewhere and he did not even notice. He went about without any clothes, thereafter leading to a major contention that to achieve kaivalya one requires nudity.
