First, we should take Samayik. We get up and bow down three times to the monks or nuns or to Lord Shri Simandhar Swami in the direction of North-east corner and seek the permission for Pratikraman.

During whole Pratikraman, depending on time and occasion, “day time” word may be replaced by “ night time” if you are doing in the early morning or “fortnightly time” if you are doing every 15 days, “four monthly time” if you are doing it four months, or “yearly time” if done once a year on SAMVATSARI DAY.
