Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of the Art of Living, said that the universal truth of Lord Mahavira's philosophy and teachings have become applicable to the modern world as well. At the macro level, the prosperity of a country or community is based on the pillars of sustainable development, preservation and promotion of cultural values, protection of the natural environment and establishment of good governance. This environment can be created by following the teachings of Lord Mahavir. Sri Sri said that being honored with the Ahimsa International Award has increased more responsibility towards the society.
Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan said that the Jain community, which is non-violent and peace-loving, has a special contribution in society and nation building. There is an example in the field of social service. Mahavir's Anekant Darshan creates a feeling of harmony in the society by eliminating religious intolerance, which is more needed at present.
