Paryushan Prayers-Fasting During Paryushan Parva

Paryushan Prayers

Khamemi Savve Jiva I forgive all living beings.
Savve Jiva Khamantu me May all souls forgive me,
Mitti me Savva Bhooesu I am friendly terms with all,
Veram Majjham Na Kenvi I have no animosity toward any soul.
Michchhami Dukkadam May all my faults be dissolved.

Fasting During Paryushan


During this festival, most of the Jains observe fast and Ekasan (having meal once in a day). The span of the fast could be anything between a day and 30 days or even more. People who are fasting consume only boiled water and that too only between sunrise and sunset.
