•Follow Riya & Rahul as they start their journey in Jainism, learning about the Navkar Mantra and its profound meaning. A beautifully illustrated prayer book that parents can read to their children daily, encouraging spiritual growth whilst opening their hearts & minds to its teachings. The authors, Meera & Shamil Rupani are a husband and wife team based in London. Together they have created Little Mantra Books which aims to educate and inspire future generations through beautifully illustrated pictures with powerful messages. Their first book Navkar Mantra For Kids ‘My Very First Jain Prayer’ teaches children to understand the meaning of this well-known prayer and at the same time opens their eyes to the world of Jainism. As parents of a toddler, every evening before bedtime they would recite this prayer to their little girl and as a family, they would use this time to stop and reflect on their day. When they have finished whispering these sweet little prayers, and once the endless bedtime routine finally draws to a close, they usually thank God for an early bedtime themselves!

•Have you heard of a Tirthankar? In Jain tradition anyone has the power to be a god, but every now and then there are a few special gods that are born into this world.
These are known as the Tirthankars. They spread their knowledge and wisdom around the world, so that many others can follow their path to true happiness.
This is the story of the twenty-fourth and last Tirthankar of this time cycle –Lord Mahavir.
