You can do any of above activities more than once in a day. For example, if you do ‘two’ Sāmāyika of 48 mins in 1 day (1 Sāmāyika=30 points) then you have earned 30x2 = 60 points for that activity in 1 day. So fill in as many activities during the 8 days of Paryushana & then add all the points in the ‘total points earned’ box.

There are two categories for entry:    Ages 5-15 years   &    16-25 years

Separate 1st, 2nd & 3rd Prizes will be given in both categories for achieving a total of highest points. Certificates will be awarded to all participants. Return the completed form to Archana Maru at JVB London Centre. Last day for submission:  7 September 2008.
