What is aparigraha vrat?

Philosophy and Experience


  • Ankur Jain
    Aparigrah means material detachment. It means to live in the material world and still be detached. Vrat means a self imposed fast or pre decided restraint. So when one voluntarily gives up use of some material object it becomes an aparigrah vrat. In the short run this could mean giving up use of leather etc. Even the Jewish Tradition of Shabbat when they Restraint from using some material devices like electricity and or phone etc can also fall in this catagory
