ESSENTIALS OF JAINISM – diversiton

July 3, 2017

It was fun to do an occasional RE lesson about Jains – one of my colleagues went out with a Jain who wore something over his mouth to prevent him swallowing flies. (Apparently humans swallow a vast number unknowingly over a life time.)

Then there’s the ones who go naked (skyclad).

We didn’t want to poke fun at them – just to make lessons interesting.

I was overwhelmed when I visited the Jain temple at Leicester.

They go through life-stages like Hindus.

It’s online here

and there’s a very good website with quizzes, teachers’ notes, resources and stuff here
