2021 Program Summary:
In 2021, JAINA created The Ahimsa Meals and Fasting Committee with 3 primary goals in mind:
  1. Serve 100,000 animal-free meals to those in need on Ahimsa Weekend, Oct 1-3, 2021 (and/or on Thanksgiving Day if possible).
  2. Host a global Zoom webinar on Ahimsa Weekend to educate the American public about Thanksgiving history, purpose, animal cruelty, etc. with speeches by speakers from inside and outside of Jain community. We will also encourage people to sign-up to celebrate Thanksgiving in a non-violent way.
  3. Commit at least 1,000 people to fast on Thanksgiving 2021, the 400th in US History.
     
We are currently seeking support from all JAINA centers, temples, and other allied organizations to contribute toward reaching these goals so that we can spread the message of non-violence and non-violent diet leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday.
 
Animal-free diets cause extraordinarily less harm to animals, the environment, and human health. Help us share this universal message.

Paryushan & Das Lakshan Do's & Don'ts Worksheet Update!

posted Sep 7, 2021, 4:08 PM by JCNC Technology


Paryushan & Das Lakshan Do's & Don'ts Worksheet

Pranam and Jai Jinendra, especially to our young Sadharmiks,

We announced the Paryushan activities worksheet a few days ago to inform our young Sadharmiks about the format this year. If you already printed out a sheet, please make a new copy from this link. When you submit the worksheet, you will be submitting based on this new format.


Please note that a small number of changes were made to the worksheet based on the review of JCNC Religious Committee. These changes are aimed at helping you do more activities such as samayik, swadhyay, kesar puja, and navkarshi. This will also clarify how many namokar to do in your jaap such as doing 7 Namokar Mantras at bed time to address our 7 fears and 8 Namokar mantras when you wake up for achieving the goal of 8 gunas of your soul and getting rid of 8 karmas.


Also, please save the date - Sep 25 - for Tapasvi Bahuman and for the prizes based on this activity worksheet.


For questions/further information please reach out to Worksheet Coordinators, Mitesh Sheth & Jayshree Sheth @ email specialactivities@jcnc.org
