Chandkaushik, the snake had the power to burn anyone just through its vision. When Tirthankar Mahavir had to pass through the forest where Chandkaushik lived, He had no fear as He was at peace within himself and had no hatred towards anyone. Tirthankar Mahavir himself went and looked at Chandkaushik with Compassion and a sense of calm which changed Chandkaushik entirely.

This Mahavir Janma Kalyanak, let us PLEDGE to show Compassion to birds and animals by feeding them everyday and not hurting them in any way.
