Today, marks the beginning of the 8 day most auspicious festival for Jain across the world – Parva Paryushan – The festival of forgiveness.
Today, I want to pray to God asking him to give us strength and wisdom. Strength to love and to forgive. Unshakable faith in his plans when things don’t go as per our plans. Courage to admit our mistakes when we are wrong and the ability to take risks and move out of our comfort zone.
O God, give us strength please, that the faith in our hearts is not shaken by the abrupt storms in life. Bless us with a soul so kind and pure to forgive those who sin against us as you forgive us unconditionally.
क्षमा वीरस्य भूषणम – Forgivness is the jewel of the brave
Forgiveness is the jewel of the brave. It takes a big heart to forgive. I request your forgiveness for any act of omission or commission, by thought, word or deed, that may have hurt you or your loved ones – Micchami Dukkadam
