We should not use flowers during Parvadhiraj Paryushan Mahaparva, the leading festival of Jains across the world. Flowers are living beings and have sense, they also feel pain when they are plucked off the branches or trees.
Many people like to decorate their homes with flowers and also put floral malas in their hair. We should avoid the use of flowers of any kind and observe non-violence towards all living beings.
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
