Tirthankar Mahavir’s Journey towards Enlightenment & Moksha

Aug 22 | 6:30–7:30pm

Leslie Cheek Theater

Join us for a presentation of Indian Dances performed by local artists inspired by the life of Tirthankar Mahavir, born 599 BCE. Lord Mahavir was an enlightened being who practiced Jainism, an Indian religion teaching a path to spiritual purity and enlightenment through disciplined nonviolence. This original production combines Raas-Garba (an Indian folk dance style) and Bharathanatyam (an Indian classical dance form) and offers the opportunity for guests to pause from the clamor of daily living and contemplate and reflect on Lord Mahavir’s meaningful journey.
