Paryushan

8–10 Days of Living a Jain Way of Life

Paryushan Parv/Das Lakshan are festivals for celebrating the qualities and essence of the Soul. These auspicious 8 or 10 days offer us an opportunity to focus on our spirituality with the
hope that we will live a Jain Way of Life for the rest of the year.

Disciplining oneself for these practices is a difficult task. The following activity recommendations are for people of all ages along with point incentives. A family can print this page and give one copy to each member of the family to fill out and add up the points at the end of the festival. A gift can be offered for achieving a certain point target. Each family member should encourage and help others to achieve their best.
