Tapasvi Bahuman and Sakal Sangh Kshamapana

Saturday, October 3rd, 9:30 AM

Jai Jinendra,

We ask Sukh Shaata of all our Tapasvis. Please note JCNC will be celebrating “Tapasvi Bahuman and Sakal Sangh Kshamapana” program on Saturday, October 3rd 9:30 AM (Program will start on time, so please arrive on time)

Please let us know about your major Tapasya this year, per qualifying criteria below by responding pr@jcnc.org If you gave your name for Samuh Parana on September 18th, we already have your name and you do not have to provide it again.

We are proud to announce that this year we had many Tapasyas in all age groups. Please join us to recognize everyone who did Tapasya and seek Kshamapana from Sakal Sangh.

Paryushan And Das Laxan worksheet:

We have received very good response from kids about Paryushan Do's and Don't worksheet. It was very touching to see the impact of this spreadsheet in creating an awareness in young children and motivate them to participate in the Paryushan religious activities. It was amazing to see how young kids were motivated to perform Tap, Upvaas, Ekasna’s, Maoun, do Pratikraman, attend lectures, give up their activities such as watching TV and manage their anger and behavior.

We will be recognizing these young children at our Tapasvi Bahuman. A first prize will be awarded for each age category and in addition a prize will be awarded to each of the children who participated.

JCNC would like to recognize each and every one who made an effort to do any Tapasya, however big or small.
