Level 5B - Oct 2010 class

Posted By Yogendra K. Jain, Sunday, October 3, 2010
Class: JCGB Level 5B Pathshala
Teacher - Yogendra Jain
Material Used - Jain Way of Life Book

I asked the Level 5B kids - what they want to do this year:
- less theory
- more applications
- how religion has started - phenomenon about
- why we have to do puja and rituals
- how to talk about Jainism

My Feedback:
- Good feedback
- We need to review fundamentals also

What we did in Class:
- Meditation for few minutes with all Pathshala students
- What is our goal - to be happy, healthy, content and others around us also be happy, healthy, and content
- What prevents us - Our Kshayas (passions) -  Krodh (anger), Maan (Ego), Maya (Deceit), Lobh (Greed)
    - we must manage our passions - to do this
        - we must have awareness
        - must have knowledge
        - must change our behavior / conduct
- Non-Violence - self, family, friends, enemies
- Non- Absolutism

We had a guest lecturer - Dr. Manoj Jain from Memphis - he explained the deeper meaning of NV - Non Violence, NA - Non Absolutism, NP - Non-Possessiveness;
- he gave an example of a patient who was coming out of illness and Manoj asked her - what is the date today, what year, who is the president - and her response to the last question was quite reveling.  What was the NA view of the patient (Absolutist) , what was the NA view of nurse (Acceptance).

- Non-Possessiveness - Needs and Want..
- Reviewed the homework
- Reviewed the elevator pitch and discussed how to give simple elevator pitch

Homework for November 2010:
- Write a simple elevator pitch
- Read chapter in JWOL - Treasures in Jainism - page 9  (we calculated that by the time one graduates from high school - a typical JCGB pathshala student has had 10,000 hour of learning in math and sciences and only 200 hours in Jainism; Does this strengthen your faith in Jainism?
- Read Chapter in JWOL on 24 Reasons to Believe in and Live a Jain Way of Life - and be ready to give a 2 min. talk on what three reasons appeal to you the most
