Paryushan or Das Lakshan is the most important Jain religious observance of the year. Paryushan means, literally, “abiding” or “coming together“. During this festival the Ten Virtues are observed by all Digambar Jains in 10 days.
This is a grand Jain festival of self-introspection, self-enlightenment and self-achievement.
Its teachings and celebrations hold tremendous lessons for how we all, not just Jains, can live in better harmony with ourselves, all living beings, and the environment.
