Going to school with The Jai Jais

Children’s life in school has changed so much during this Covid climate.  During lock down parents all over the world, had to take on a new role as teachers.  I know from my personal experience with my boys it definitely had its ups and downs!... but we all came through it, and it just brought us closer together.

So children.. why not take The Jai Jais with you to nursery and school, for fun and adventures in your day.

A Bond between Generations with The Jai Jais. One from the heart

A Bond between Generations with The Jai Jais. One from the heart

One things that has been absolutely magical and so precious to me has been testimonials of parents that have said how their children have always taken the books to share with their grandparents.  What a perfect way to bridge a generation gap and let those stories live on through generations. One parent told me she had to buy extra sets to keep at each of the grandparents houses!  One of my most cherished moments is when my eldest son sat and did Jai Jai with his great grandfather and they spent time laughing, talking and reading my books.  It was amazing to see a 100 year old great grandfather and his 3 years old great grandchild have something in common, sharing the most treasured times and beloved memories

Being the last of the 24 Tirthankars, Mahavir’s teachings are those that are followed by Jains today. However, the teachings are no different to those preached by all of the other Tirthankars that preceded Mahavir. Why do Jains celebrate Diwali?

Interview with a Hindu Priest Sagarbhai Shukla

We have been so lucky with ‘The Jai Jais’ that our paths have crossed with the wonderful Sagarbhai Shukla, Hindu priest, Wembley.

His understanding of Hinduism and scriptures make it so relatable to the modern generation. We have been so blessed to spend time with him, and understand how our generation, and our children can continue to maintain and grow our cultural and religious roots.

He explains so well the reason behind certain poojas, vrats and festivals and you will see his wisdom in our joint blogs. 🙏🏼
