why schools have a greater roll in forming habits and right personality...

If u cant read the meaning of the letter of Yugrajji then I need not even attempt to explain. 
Man is known by the company he keeps. And to get a right company a school with a difference is required as most part of innocent  young minds r spent in a school and that is where if atmosphere is different then development is different. 

In ancient times children were not allowed to be influenced by parents or neighbour so they were sent to Gurukul and they developed a unbiased personality. Presently the schools are giving an environment where rich and influential get different treatment, where sanskar is fogotten, eating habits r not as per Jainism , personality is developed to compete and not to be a good human.....and so on.....but wasted ur and my time .....bye .... 

Thanks and Regards,

Dear Tholiya ji,

Jai Jinendra,

I was in Podar (santacruz),

The moot point here is the moral and values instilled and regularly demonstrated by the parents & relatives and the community in which the the child lives. We as a community owe a lot to the new generation. Just by pointing our fingers at Schools (could be a convent) we cant shun our responsibilities. As you are also aware, you can have some schools in some areas but we cant have all schools built by jain and which propagate Jainsm. That could be a near to immpossible task, better and easier way is to teach our kids at home and in community. I am not aware of other sects but in some of the shwtambar sects samaj operates special classes which impart knowledge about religion. Further, we must keep good books at home so that kids are inspired to read them. We can also launch CD roms, DVDs and comics on religion and morals. I am sure, if kids read good stuff they will imbibe the good values in them.

I do not completely agree with him. Schools are built to impart knowledge of subjects like maths, science, history etc. They do very little to instill culture and religion. Being a secular state, schools are not suppose to impart religious knowledge as students of all religion do attend the same and its very difficult to teach religion. However, schools do teach good things said by all religious leaders. To sow the seed of jainism or for that matter any religion is basic responsibility of parents, relatives, community and dharmagurus. We must teach our kids to read learn and understand all religions. On attining right age he will be able to find his own path. You would agree that we cant force anything on new generation kids.
We are also undermining the influence of media and information network also known as internet. Kids are getting all sorts of information from internet, some are use full and some are not. However, it would be difficult to stop that as it has become essential part of life and with advent of mobile phones it has become even more difficult to police what kind of information the kids are accessing from web.
I am a ardent believer of jainism and i am sure jainism has the power to retain its glory. I have no doubt in saying that jainism is the right way of living and only jainism has solution for all kinds of problems we are facing in present world. There is no danger to jainism and any ways we as a ordinary human beings cant do much to save it except for following it in true sense.

Various sects of jainism believe in building temples and there are religious as well as non religious reasons for having such a large number of temples or derasars. Building of school and college has nothing to do with building of temples as you are also well aware that many people who donate in name of temple will not even pay a single penny for building of school. Further, running of schools requires a professional setup and is governed by regulations made by the statute.

As a follower of jainism it is our primary duty to follow the religion in true spirit and make our children understand that they are reallly fortunate to have born as a janmana jain. They will become real jain only if they follow the lifestyle of jainism.

I would therefore request that we stop complaining and start living like a true jain. Probably, this would guide our kids to learn and understand the right things incl religion.

Hope, I have not hurt sentiments of any one.

Jai jinendra.

With regards,
