He gave up riches
He slept in ditches

He didn’t eat cows
He followed
The five vows

He traveled
Thirty years
He conquered
His fears

Through meditation
And fasting
He reached happiness
Everlasting

Through peace
And love
He reached nirvana
Above

If you follow
His way
You’ll receive his blessings
On this day
 
Happy Mahavir Jayanti!
