Tirthankar Parmatma Shri Simandhar Swami along with 20 other current Tirthankars reside in Mahavideh Kshetra, which lies in the north-east direction of Bharat Kshetra. We should bow down in reverence, offer prabhu vandana to these 20 living Tirthankar Parmatmas. Paryushan mahaparva is not only celebrated in 5 Bharat, but also celebrated in 5 Airavat and 5 Mahavideh Kshetra. During the auspicious days of Paryushan, there are spiritual practices being carried out in these other Kshetras also. We must offer our Prabhu Vandana in utmost reverence with the bhaav that even Tirthankar Parmatma would be engrossed in propounding spiritual practices during Paryushan and we wish to pay homage to their supreme sadhana and aradhana.
Prabhu Vandana helps us become humble and shed our ego. Humility is the foundation of our growth in all the spheres of life. VANDANA(Bowing down in reverence) gives rise to VINAY(humility) which inturn is instrumental in our VIKAS (progress). Vandana also inspires us and strengthens our will power to tread forward on the path of Prabhu.
We can offer Vandana 3 times, 27 times and during Paryushan we can also try to offer prabhu Vandana 108 times.
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
