Paryushan Parv

Paryushan Parv will start from 16th August 2009 for some whereas for some it will start from 17th August 2009. This is as far as Sthanakvasi & Deravasi sects are concerned. For Digambars, it would start from 24 th August and last for not 8 but 10 days. This period is invariably looked up on as period of penance and meditation. This parv is celebrated in monsoon and monsoon is a season of diseases. With that thing in mind, we also have fasting as an important ritual during Paryushan. Shri Dinesh Shah has sent Routine to be observed during Paryushan.
