Focus on Forgiveness
The Young Jains Focus on Forgiveness – a virtual offering for those who can not take part in the traditional Paryushan activities and want to get as much benefit as possible from this period of reflection and repentance.
Dates: Monday 11th – Thursday 14th September 2023
Zoom details will be shared in due course.
Those not able to take part due to:
Looking after the young or the elderly
Not able to reach the venues
Not understanding the traditional ritual
The holiest Jain festival, Paryushan Parva, is a time when we reflect on the previous year, forgive others and seek forgiveness with a view of not committing the same errors again, thus improving our own lifestyle.
Dedicated YJ WhatsApp Group with sharing throughout the day to Focus on Forgiveness with:
Quote to contemplate on
Article, story, video, song
Awareness Action for 24 hours
4 virtual evening sessions (from Mon 11th September 2023) in English to capture the essence of Paryushan by sharing story and reflection in a peaceful, calm, reflective atmosphere.
