JIVA Campus turns into a Home away from home for 56 Children – Summer Camp ends with great zeal and departing hugs amongst new friends …
20 days ago, children came to the campus with puzzled minds and were not happy leaving their parents. But today, they all found a home away from home and went back with sweet memories, improved intellect, peaceful state of mind, a clear thought and most importantly – with divine blessing of the great, Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji.
56 children from various schools including JPHS, Chirec International, SR DG and others have come to JIVA, campus for a fully residential summer camp. They have learnt to live together happily by accepting differences and encouraging togetherness. They have learnt to understand various sects of knowledge ranging from authentic and root Vedic scriptures to Geograhy and even enjoyed Robotics and Virtual Reality shows. They have learnt to pay namaskars to Sun by thanking him through not only slokas, but also surya namaskaras. They learnt to keep the surroundings clean by directly involving themselves in cleaning efforts. They played in the evenings in serene parks around the campus. They made new friends, and are waiting to come back to this camp even before next summer.
One of the students expressed her happiness about HH Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swami’s classes and told that His classes are a bliss, an amazing experience that will be remembered for her lifetime. All parents thanked organisers for arranging such a beautiful show on the last day.

Next was the stories session. On the first day, Sri Ramanujacharya’s life and teachings were narrated as it was the Avathara Thirunakshatram day. A handbook of the biography of Sri Ramanujacharya written by Srimathi Sumithra Potha Razu was distributed to the children. A quiz competition was announced and the kids were asked to read the book for the quiz. From the second day onwards, Vighna Nivarana Chathurthi, Dasara and Little Heroes stories were discussed.
Besides this we had bhajans and the yoga session was handled by our yoga master.

PSN Rao and family from Sharjah visited JIVA campus recently. They visited the Statue of Equality site and felt elated seeing the onsite progress. They donated 2 Lakhs for the SRS project and received the mangalasasanams of HH Sri Swamiji. Sriman PSN Rao ji is a very active member of JET and is actively involved in Prajna activities.
Prajna in UAE started in 2012 when HH advised Sriman Ramesh Reddy garu to begin Prajna with a view to benefiting children by empowering them with vedic culture and providing them safe guards in terms of true knowledge to face the challenges in life and equip the kids with positive outlook and universal friendly stature.
Sriman Rameshgaru with the help of Sriman Mepperla Srinivas Ramanujam garu initiated the Prajna set up and formed a core team subsequently with the induction of Sriman Anand Kanduri,Ranganath,Bhanu Kumar and PSN Rao to reach out to all Bhagavad bandhus and parents residing in UAE.
Prajna made a modest beginning with a handful of kids and few gurus under the kind guidance of Prajna coordinator Prapanna Sarada mathaji, who visited Dubai to train Prajna gurus and continues to play the role of constant guiding force. Since inception, Prajna UAE has seen a steady growth with enthusiastic Parents and well wishers joining the divine mission.Today Prajna has about 20 learning centers across UAE with a Kids strength of over 150 and about 20 gurus.
