Jain Vidyaashram aims to promote compassion, kindness, love and respect towards all the living beings. The school has organised a meeting with Poonam Chandra Vijaya Swamiji on 16 th November 2019 and 22 nd November 2019. He preached karuna values to a group of teachers and students.
Karuna Club encourages values such as kindness and compassion towards animals. It motivates both adult and children to follow vegetarianism. He educated the gathering about the importance of animals lives and how we are depleting it. He interpreted that we get all essential nutrients for the body from the vegetarian food and the non-vegetarian food is only hazardous.
He demonstrated that non-vegetarians are violent and arrogant with an example of a lion and a plant eating deer. He wrapped up the session with a note that the non-vegetarians are inhumane.
Many students and teachers realised the advantages of vegetarianism and they took pledge to become vegetarians. Their transformation was appreciated and acknowledged with a certificate, cash award and a shield by the Vice – President of Karuna International Mr. SURESH KANKARIA on 29 th November 2019.
