DEDICATEDToAcharya Shri Hemchandracharya
(1089 AD to1173 AD) Acharya Shri Hemchandracharya's life was a living example of compassion and love. During his life he touched the lives of manyand one of them was King Kumarpal of Gujarat. His teaching of  Ahimsa and compassion towards all living beings was a turningpoint in the life of the king. He came to understand that by thepower of refusing to harm any living creature, one could gather strength to dispel much pain and suffering from the face of theearth. Acharya Shree Hemchandracharya convinced the king to issue anorder to all his people to stop animal torturing or killing for food,sport or fun. Thus for many generations the State of Gujaratbecame vegetarian and no one engaged in any kind of animalkilling or torturing.This is a most unusual and hopeful incident for mankind that for acertain period in its history a whole state came to observe theancient principle of Ahimsa.
