Shri 105 MuktiLaxmi Mataji's Vihar

What a starting of the day, almost woke up at 4:15 AM...and then at 4:20 .. and eventually at 4:45 ;-). Followed by a run-for-life chase to catch the 5:00 AM bus at the temple. Narrowly escaped an head on collision on the way….but somehow managed to reach temple at 5:10 AM. Thankfully there was a vehicle to take us to "Sarita Vihar' at that time. 

Joined mata jee's vihar near Jasola and then a brisk 8 km walk with Matajee's Sangh is really memorable.. Over 15 JYN members and other jain samaj people joining us in chanting namokar-mantra, singing bhajans and shouting slogans. 

We reached temple at 6:45 AM followed by a good discussion with Sangh on JYN activities and future plans.

Thanks everyone who joined us for this event and made it a grand success.

Diksha Divas of Acharaya Shri Vidhya Sagar ji Maharaj

On the auspicious occasion of Diksha Divas of Acharaya Shri Vidhya Sagar ji Maharaj on 24th June, JYN conducted Pooja of Acharaya Shri followed by Kids Pathshala & Dharmik Discussion.

First class of Baal Pathshala

On the first day of "Baal Pathshala" when I reached mandir there were only two kids sitting in the class, I was shocked that how will the first class of pathshala will proceed if the count is so less ... 
Then after 10-20min count started increasing and finally at 9.00am it was abt 28 students.
class started with Prarthna,then icebreaking session by Anant i.e. introduction of students and teachers, roll no. distribution.
Further class was proceeded by Rahul and Parul with topic "Namokar Mantra" and its importance followed by story of "Anjanchor" which was very interesting and students enjoyed a lot.
Last part was the quiz and 1-minute game in which students participated very actively and enjoyed also. They were very eager to give answers of the questions.

Class ended with gift and snacks distribution. I was very happy to see small kids learning and actively participating in the various activities of the class with a great smile on their faces .
All credit goes to jyn efforts and teachers of the class to make this event a great success.
cheers for JYN

JYN members looking so cute while handling kids :P Amazed to see 25+ kids now :) Manglacharan in a sweet voice by Varsha Bhabhi .. She was also wearing a badge :P Then the kids volunteered to sing a beautiful Bhajan :)
Program was followed by Deep Prajwalan by Pradhaan Ji and an Overwhelming JYN appreciation speech by Pradhan Ji :)
 Then JYN gifted 'Shashtra Ji' and 'Shri-fal' to Elacharya Shri :) followed by Aashir Vachan
