Parvadhiraj Paryushan Mahaparva is almost here which will be followed by Das Laxna Mahaparva. Paryushan is the time to stay close to our aatma, perform introspection, kshamapana, shed karmas and engage in purification activities.


At Jain Society of Houston, we have many virtual religious programs and activities planned for our community to participate in and take Dharma Laabh and make Paryushan spiritual and most rewarding.
