SCVP Jain School, run by Veerayatan UK, were invited again this year by Oshwal NW to deliver Paryushan4Kidz at Harrow Leisure Centre after last year’s successful event. The session spanned the morning from 10.00am to 12.30pm and the theme for this year was twofold. The first was to communicate to the children their identity as a Jain and the second was to explore Mahavir Bhagwan’s message of friendship, love and respect for all.
An expectant group of seventy plus children arrived, ranging in age from 5 to 12 years. It was very encouraging to see so many children participate and parents making the time to bring their children to this activity.
The morning started off with prayers such as navkar mantra and logassa, a few stretches, and some meditation as a whole group. This was followed by some ice breaking and bonding time activities which were led by our very motivational Shaileenbhai.
