Feedback we received

Many many thanks for 'Paryushan Meals'. It was such a boon. My husband works in NY and usually comes home @ around 8:30pm. It would not have been possible to do Chauvihar during Paryushan without this great facility. In these times of rush and hectic lifestyle, it becomes difficult to stick to certain timings.
Lots of Anumodna for people who volunteered to take out time out of their busy schedule to distribute food.

We would be interested in similar kind of arrangement in future - be it Tithi days or so.

And once again thanks for this wonderful arrangement.

- Purvi Mehta

Thank you for providing us with this wonderful service. Quality and quantity of food, and the kindness of the volunteers really impressed me. Keep up the great work!

- kejal Kothari

I am very thankful to you for all the efforts you are taking for us.

- Nikita Shah

This is an absolute awesome service during the holy festival of paryushan. I appreciate efforts and time of everyone who have participated in this event to make it a huge success. I have been receiving this service since last 2 years and I really appreciate those who are the plan makers for this event during paryushan. thanking you.

- Pratik Shah

This has once again been an excellent service. Thank you very much

- Monica Shah

Thank you so much. I just came to U.S a month ago. And for students like me, getting jain meals in paryushan is always a difficult task. We have to cook on our own which most of us do not know to. Thank you so much for your kind help to students like me. I really felt as if i was at home. The meal was very good. Thank you. Jai Jinendra.

- Saurabh Shah

THANK YOU very much for providing these meals! They helped me observe Paryushan with a complete Jain diet. Thank you!

- Sunish Shah

Great initiative and team work

- krunal Shah

This is truly a fantastic service! I really would like to donate to it if I could. I personally went to the 12th street location and every time I went, the volunteers were so nice and helpful! Everything was fantastic. The one and only suggestion I would have to improve this would be to add a vegan option if possible. Truly speaking, this is outstanding. Thank you so much for making this possible.

- Alok Lal

- Parsh Shah

This is really great that you guys help us to maintain Dharma Aradhana during paryushan parv.

"Paryushana Meals was started with the intention of providing fresh and pure Jain meals to those who are willing but are unable to follow such restrictions."

Overview of Jain Education and Empowerment Trust
About Paryushan Meals
Paryushana Parva is the most important festival for Jains; a festival through which we celebrate the qualities and essence of the Soul. These auspicious 8 or 10 days offer us an opportunity to focus on our spirituality with the hope that we will live a Jain Way of Life for the rest of the year. Disciplining oneself for these practices is a difficult task.
