During the auspicious days of Paryushan Mahaparva, we can become instrumental in inspiring others to understand the practices of Paryushan, to attend discourses, and to make the most out of the knowledge bestowed upon us during this time.
We can essentially become a ‘Help Desk’, suggesting to others practices that can be observed during Paryushan Mahaparva.
At the outset of Paryshan Mahaparva, one thought must be very clear and strongly present in our mind, i.e Paryushan is for the purification of my vices and wrongdoings.
“When I am involved in the process of cleaning my vices, then why not motivate others around me to follow the same process of inner-cleaning?”
We can persuade others by explaining them more about Paryushan Mahaparva and actuating similar feelings in them. If possible, try to make them understand the true value of this Jain Festival of Paryushan.
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
