Jainism teaches us to care for even the smallest living beings and micro- organisms.We must stay alert and ensure that we don’t hurt any living beings while performing any activity or tasks during the entire day
What about the mosquito and other insect repellents that we use? Applying these or using any kind of repellant leads to the death of numerous micro- organisms.
This Paryushan Mahaparva, let us extend our care and concern towards those living beings as well. During the 8 days of Paryushan, we can avoid using insect and mosquito repellants and ensure that not even the bhaav/emotion of harming another living being arises in us.
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
