We are always working on our toes round the year either for our own business or as an employee for a company. However, being followers of Bhagwan Mahavir we must try to take leave from work in advance during the 8 days of Paryushan.
We must set ourselves free from business and office and delve more inwards, towards religion in order to initiate Karma Nirjara (shedding Karmas)
Paryushan Mahaparva is an opportunity for us to give up on our interests behind materialistic financial matters and involve ourselves in philanthropic initiatives. Every day amidst Paryushan, we can make different kinds of donations such as – donating clothes, vessels, spectacles, notebooks, pencils, or if possible, even a watch, etc.
Donation is the process to reduce our comfort and instead help those around us. Bhagwan Mahavir has said that giving up your own conducive environment in order to make the situation more beneficial for others is the actual process of sacrificing your possessions. (Parigrah Daan)
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
