  6. 6. But… we thought about it … why do these things happen?<br />
  7. 7. What are the heads of state <br />(prime ministers/ presidents etc.) <br />made of? <br />Why are most of them not concerned <br />like you and me…<br />

  18. 18. PRATI KRAMAN<br />Back<br />To Go<br />
  19. 19. PRATIKRAMAN<br />means to Go back<br />
  20. 20. <ul><li> This practice is especially followed each </li></ul> year during the festival of Paryushan<br /><ul><li>Paryushan is a special </li></ul> SPIRITUAL RETREAT taken by Jains each <br /> year for 8 days during which they do <br /> PRATIKRAMAN. <br />
  21. 21. If EVERYONE took<br />ONE WEEK<br />in the whole year <br />(just 7 days out of the 365 days each year!), <br />to introspect,<br />Don’t you think it will make the world a better place?<br />
  22. 22. DO<br />

  28. 28. It takes a strong person to say sorry, <br />and an ever stronger person to forgive.<br />
  29. 29. You reap what you sow… <br />Still, if we blame another knowingly or unknowingly for our sufferings,<br />be it from the tiniest ant <br />to ones closest to us... <br />then we must offer ourforgiveness to them<br />

  31. 31. …remember all those <br />times when<br />you could have been better…<br />more loving<br />more kind<br />more sensitive<br />more peaceful<br />more understanding<br />
  32. 32. …then with a heart filled with humility and love… <br />we seek forgiveness..<br />
