The Key Endeavour of Jataka Tales - Sanvi Rai

The key endeavour of the Jataka tales is to teach people the value of a good life. Every jataka tale teaches the people the values of mankind and humanity in various aspects. The message conveyed by Buddha in these tales has great significance. 

From the story “The Fowler and the Quail” we can witness the power of unity and oneness the cooperation and the strength unity lies within is remarkably evident. Yes, the story did connect me today and taught a mesmerising lesson about being in a team and we should not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs. 

In essence, oneness is a feeling of interconnectedness and being spiritually related to one’s soul and heart. We gain the supreme power to see tranquillity and beauty around everyone and embedded in each soul. Religion is a complex system of beliefs and practices concerning the universe's existence, nature, and purpose. It typically involves devotion to a higher power.

Unity is Strenghth - Chitranshi Singh

Yes, the story connected with me because there is "Unity is strength.” When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. It has great value in all walks of life. When we are united then we can surmount any challenges and accomplish any goal. 

If we cooperate with each other, no one will be able to break us. But if we quarrel among ourselves, our enemies will take advantage of this and defeat us. 

This chapter, very beautifully, highlights the same fact likewise in this chapter, the leader of the quail told them to put their head through the net and told them to fly together with the net and go to the place which they liked.

All's Well That Ends Well - Shambhavi Nautiyal

I feel like I did connect with the story in some way as I could resonate with the goat when it felt happy for itself being freed and sorry for the person next in line for sinning. 

I too have been in a situation like that, where I did something wrong and realised it as soon as I had the asseveration of whoever I had wronged and just wished to be freed from that burden with the same thing happening to me. 

Soon the same scenario was created and I felt better that, at that time, I was on the right side but I felt bad seeing the other person going through the same thing I did years ago I tried convincing them at times and sometimes I did not. 

But regardless of the final story, it was all pre-destined, whether I was left disappointed, I enforced my boundaries and protected my energy or they listened to me and tried mending my ways, one thing holds absolute truth and It's that no one is indeed aggrieved. It is all fair, happening just the way it’s supposed to in line with those people’s past deeds.

Honesty and Self Respect - Disha Mewara

My grandparents
Honesty is always admirable in the family, civil society, friends and across the globe. A person with honesty is respected by all. Building the character of honesty entirely depends on his/her family values and ethics and his/her surrounding environment. Parents showing honest behaviour and character in front of their children create an impact on the children, and we say honesty lies in their genes. Honesty can also be developed practically, which requires proper guidance, encouragement, patience and dedication.

Self-respect refers to loving oneself and behaving with honour. An individual who has self-respect would treat himself with honour furthermore lacking self-respect. It is a matter of disgrace for an individual who does not respect himself; he should certainly not expect respect from others; nobody likes to treat such an individual with respect. Self-respect improves the morality of the individual who has good ethical nature. Hence, self-respect makes you a better person.

I have sweet and loving grandparents. My grandmother's name is Mrs Asha Mewara. She is 70 years old. She is very caring. Her hair has turned grey. Everyday she worships Mother Durga very sincerely. She gives me 'prasad'. She knows many fairy tales and stories of 'Ramayana' and ‘Mahabharata’. My grandfather is also sweet. His name is Mr.Om Prakash Mewara. He is 75 years old. He goes out for a walk every morning. He loves to watch news channels on TV. He is very wise. He teaches me many things. My grandparents are my guide, my teacher and my friends. I learn many things while enjoying their company. They love me deeply...I also love and respect my grandparents a lot. We play together in the evening. I am thankful to God for blessing me with such wonderful grandparents.
