It needs to be recalled that Mahatma Gandhi had once said so on Jainism and non-violence,"No religion of the world has explained the principle of Ahimsa so deeply and systematically as discussed, with its applicability in life, in Jainism. As and when this benevolent principle of Ahimsa will be sought for practice by the people of the world to achieve their ends of life in this world and beyond, Jainism is sure to have the uppermost status and Bhagwan Mahavira is sure to be respected as the greatest authority on Ahimsa."
Acharya Tulsi was quite influenced by the principle of non-violent resistance used by Gandhiji in public life. He was remembered as prodigious visionary and who authored a number of books in Sanskrit, Hindi and Rajasthani related to Jainism at the function.
Jain vows (vratas) govern the activities of both the Jain monks and followers, which related to non-violence; abstention from lying and stealing; chastity, and renunciation of possessions. The first five small vows or anuvratas are the promises to abstain from violence, falsehood, stealing; greed; and hoarding.
Acharya Tulsi (1914–1997), the ninth head of the Svetambar Terapanth sect of the Jains, stressed spirituality through revitalization of the Anuvrat Movement and Preksha Meditation. In order to spread the Anuvrat Movement globally, Anuvrat Vishva Bharati, was established in 1983 at Rajsamand near Udaipur in Rajasthan as a global institute for the study and promotion of nonviolence.
In another event, Digamber Jain monks concluded their celebration with Vishava Shanti Maha Yagya and taking out a chariot procession of Lord Adinath in Mansarovar locality of Jaipur to spread peace and non-violence.
