Paryushan Mahaparva is an opportunity to conquer all your senses and needs. We need food to survive. It is a basic need. But have we let this need remain basic after all?
We consume so many varieties of food owing to our sense of taste.
We desire to eat food that is tasty, spicy, or of a certain flavor and texture. We have surpassed the phase where food was just a basic need, which was consumed mainly to provide fuel for the proper functioning of our body. It is more about tasty food than just consuming food for basic survival needs.
However, during these 8 days of Paryushan, let us avoid a few items that we can easily live without. This Paryushan Parva 2021, let us all give up consumption of milk, ghee, oil, curd, sweets, basically avoid vigays (taste enhancers).
It is difficult to observe Ayambil, but we can gradually start by eliminating some of these items from our daily consumption.
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
