Paryushan Mahaparva is an auspicious Jain Festival to observe penance and sadhana. During these 8 days, generally, the Namaskar Mahamantra is chanted by everyone. It is very beneficial to wake up early and do Pratikraman. Pratikraman is a process to purify your soul by remembering and repenting for the mistakes committed and seeking forgiveness. And if one is not familiar with the entire Pratikraman, he/she should engage in bhaav pratikraman. By performing morning Bhaav Pratikraman one can set himself free from the faults committed knowingly or unknowingly during the previous night. For instance, hurting a mosquito while tossing and turning in the bed while sleeping, inadvertently hurting living beings while walking in the dark, emotions experienced while dreaming etc.
Bhaav pratikraman thus gives us peace and happiness during the rest of the day as we set ourselves free from the heaviness of the misdeeds committed during the night.
Paryushan Parv – the 8 days Jain Festival of Forgiveness is an occasion to fulfill the responsibilities towards our soul. Paryushan parv is the time when our soul vibrates the most and thus during this time, a seeker should indulge in small small tasks that will make his spiritual journey all the more worthwhile. Rashtrasant Param Gurudev Shree Namramuni Maharaj Saheb profoundly enlists a detailed list of Do’s and Don’ts of what should be done and what we should refrain from doing during these divine days of Paryushan. During these Paryushan days, one should realize, repent and seek forgiveness for his mistakes by performing Pratikraman, Alochana fasting, taking small Pachkhan vows, etc. If a seeker is not well versed with the process and pronunciation of Pratikraman, he/she can purify his soul by also taking the support of Online Pratikraman Aradhana
