Siddhartha Gautama budda and Mahaveer

The Śvētāmbara tradition believes that Mahavira was born in 599 BC and died in 527 BC,
and the Digambara tradition believes that he died in 510 BC.
The controversy arises from efforts to date him and the Buddha;
according to Buddhist and Jain texts they are believed to have been contemporaries,
and (unlike Jain literature) much ancient Buddhist literature has survived.
A member of the Kashyapa gotra,Mahavira was born into the royal kshatriya family of King Siddhartha and Queen Trishala
of the Ikshvaku dynasty.This is the dynasty in which Hindu epics place Rama and the Ramayana.
