Michhami Dukkadam

It’s Paryushan time again… For Jains worldwide, it’s a time for fasting, prayer, and forgiveness. Family members and friends wish each other with the phrase Michhami Dukkadam: “If I have wronged you, knowingly or unknowingly, by thought or word or deed, please forgive me.”

At around this time of this year, Jews celebrate Yom Kippur also as an occasion for atonement. Asking others around us for forgiveness is part of this observance.

Guruji has spoken very beautifully on forgiveness. Do spend five minutes and watch the following video.

On this day of forgiveness, from both of us (Anoop and Shraddha) to all… Michhami Dukkadam. 🙂
