CELEBRATION OF PARYUSHAN PARVA
TIRTHANKAR LORD MAHAVIRA
This year Paryushan Parva begins from Monday 2nd September 2013 till Monday 9th September, 2013. The day of Samvatsari is on Monday 9th, September 2103.
The paryushan parva is generally celebrated by daily meditation, prayer, religious education and practices. During this period fasting and study of Holy Scriptures is performed. Shwetambara Jains celebrate an eight day festival. Starting from the fourth day it is customary for the Shvetambars to read the Kalpa Sutra the Holy Scripture which recounts the life of lord Mahavira. The book recounts the fourteen dreams of Mahavira’s mother before his birth, followed by the story of his birth and his life as well as his liberation. Final day of Paryushan Parva is Samvatsari Pratikraman. It is the time for confession and seeking forgiveness for all wrong doings they may have committed during the year just passed. One also forgives all the other life forms of their wrong deeds which may have been done to one’s own self.
