Diwali And Bhagwan Mahavir
JAINs celebrate Diwali &  Mahavir Nirvana on the new-moon day of Kartik. Bhagwan Mahavir Nirvana in 527 BC. The festival falls on the last day of the month of Asho, the end of the year in the Indian calendar. But the celebration starts in the early morning of the previous day as Lord Mahavir commenced his last sermon (final discourse known as Uttaradhyayan), which lasted until the night of Diwali.

Lord Mahavira was 71 years and 6 and a half month of age. It was the rainy season and he was staying in Pawapuri, Bihar (India).
