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.
