E is for Evening prayer
Evening prayer should remind us to
think on what we did today and should try to di better next day.
Prayer can be done in the morning and in the
evening. In the picture, the boy and the girl are doing the evening prayer.
The most important prayer in Jainism is the Navkar Mantra*. We should
say the Navkar Mantra at least five times in the morning and five times in the
evening before going to bed. Another prayer we, as a Jain, must do is called
Pratikraman. We say this prayer to remember all the bad things we've done
during day, apologize for them and promise ourselves to be more careful.
Prayers purify our soul, and we should
always do them in the morning and the Evening.
