If you are here, you might be looking for Jain religious history. Deceit, ego, anger, and greed that are coming from the aversion and attachment are considered as the impurities of the soul. In order to remove the impurities, Jainism has allowed six important practices known as Ävashyaka to be completed of which Pratikramana is defined as the 4th Ävashyak to be performed every day.
In the last few years, studies of Jain literature show that the word “Pratikraman” is used as a common noun for all important acts known as six Ävashyaka. It is even meaningful as during the way of time the Pratikraman ritual has been boosted to comprise all six Ävashyaka.
It is strongly considered that the Jain Pratikraman must be completed according to the original vidhi classified in our scriptures with suitable sympathy to find the maximum benefit. However, this is not promising for the English speaking group in the western world. Therefore, it is a humble attempt to call together an easy Pratikraman ritual for the English speaking community.
Both Sthänakaväsi and Murtipujak branches of the Shvetämbar sect carried out the six essential practices on a regular basis. Nuns and Monks are devoted to the Jain laymen (Shrävaks and Shrävikäs) who loyally observe these rituals while some carry out them occasionally. The year Pratikraman that all Jains should strive to take part in is known as Samvatsari Pratikraman, which is carried out on the last day of Paryushan.
