Over the next few months, community activist Ajay Jain Bhutoria and his team plan to reach out to Congressmen and lawmakers at the State level, along with policy makers, non-profit bodies, academics and think tanks with its action plan to seek their support for the ‘digital detox’ movement.

Washington: The small Jain community in the US has launched a digital detox movement urging people to stay away from the digital screens for some time at regular intervals.

In today’s fast-paced world, where screens dominate our lives, taking a break from the digital realm can be a game-changer,” he said, adding that the move is inspired by the vision of ‘Anuvrat Anushastha’ and its leader Acharya Shri Mahashraman.

‘Anuvrat Anushasta’ is a term that comes from Jain philosophy. ‘Anuvrat’ refers to small vows or commitments, and ‘Anushasta’ refers to the one who enforces or prescribes these vows. In Jainism, Anuvrat Anushasta is someone who guides individuals in adopting Anuvratas.

Over the next few months, Bhutoria and his team plans to reach out to Congressmen and lawmakers at the State level, along with policy makers, non-profit bodies, academics and think tanks with its action plan to seek their support for the ‘digital detox’ movement.

“We have a solution for the same, and that is ‘Anuvrat Digital Detox,’ which means small (anu), vows (vrat) towards digital detox. It means taking a break from using an electronic device or being online for a scheduled amount of time to spend more time strengthening relationships with family and friends, relieving stress, and improving sleep,” he explains.

Anuvrat Anushastha is spearheading a movement to reclaim our time from the digital realm and rediscover the beauty of life beyond screens, Bhutoria added.
