Paryushan Parva Coloring Pages

The Jain community like other communities throughout the world celebrates many social and religious functions annually. The Jain festival popularly known as 'Paryushan Parva' organized every year in the auspicious month 'Bhadrapad' (Mid-August to Mid-September) of the Hindu calendar extends from the fifth day to fourteenth day of the bright fortnight. The festival ordains the Jains to observe the ten universal supreme virtues in daily practical life.

Besides assuring a blissful existence in this world and the other world for every living being, it aims at the attainment of salvation–the supreme ideal for mundane soul. The non-Jains also express high reverence for this Jain festival.

All members of Jain community–high and low, young and old, and males and females, participate with full vigour and zeal in the various religious rituals and cultural programmes. They listen with rapt attention to the holy sermons of the saints and learned Jain scholars arranged during the ten-day festival.

In these celebrations lie dormant the seeds of the well being, peace and happiness of the common man. On the eve of this festival all activities, which add to social discord or bitterness are declared taboo from the temple pulpits. These celebrations harbinger social harmony and amity and preach the lofty Jain motto 'Live and Let live'.
