During the Jain festival of Paryushan, we should immerse ourselves in reading our Jain scriptures, known as the Aagams. For the 8 days of Paryushan Mahaparva, we should decide to atleast start with reading one of our Aagams. Paryushan is the perfect time to gain more knowledge about Jainism, familiarize yourself with the Jain principles and rituals and dive deep into Bhagwan Mahavir’s teachings.
This Payushan Parva 2021, let us make a firm resolution of reading our Jain Aagams for 1-2 hours daily.
You can download e-books and pdfs of all the Jain Aagams here.
Paryushan Parv – the 8-day Jain Festival of Forgiveness is an occasion to eliminate the impurities that pollute the soul – such as anger, ego, greed, jealousy, deceit, attachment, hatred and much more. It is a period of emotional cleansing and becoming light and relaxed from within.
From a karmic perspective, it is said that during these 8 days, the magnetic frequencies in the entire universe are the highest. As a result, the soul vibrates the most and may even bind the karmas that determine his next birth. And therefore, Jains observe maximum sadhanas, spiritual practices, penance and fasting during these days to make the most of this auspicious period.
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, Jains make an effort to realize, repent and seek forgiveness for mistakes made during the entire year by performing Pratikraman, Alochana fasting, taking small Pachkhan vows, etc. The last day of Paryushan, known as Samvatsari, is the day when everyone performs the annual practice of Samvatsari Pratikraman and says sorry or ‘Michhami Dukadam’ to every living of the universe for having hurt them knowingly or unknowingly through their mind, body and speech.
