American President Obama's Diwali Message states:-

"On behalf of the American people ...In Jainism the occasion celebratess the Nirvana of Lord Mahavira, one of a long line of spiritual leaders known for achieving enlightenment by freeing themselves of base human impulses and emotions. ..."

Incidentally in the video at :-
