Forgiveness is the supreme act of courage!
It is an act of faith and humility. It releases both the parties to move on and build a new tomorrow.However, it is very difficult to execute. Equally difficult is forgiving oneself!
However, we need to start somewhere!
And nothing better than the holy day of Samvastari – the last day of Paryushan – the biggest Jain Festival. On this day, all Jains ask for forgiveness by saying – Michammi Dukkadam.
I ask for forgiveness, if I may have hurt you, intentionally or unintentionally, by Thoughts, Words or Action.
Micchami Dukkadam !
