To Err is Human - To Forgive is Divine

In The Fast Paced Life and the Worldly desires, we simply forget that we are just mortal being and playing our part of the role in this grand drama. We start to take things to heart, too literally and too seriously. We hurt; we fight, get jealous and go through all possible negative emotions. On this auspicious occasion of Jain Festival 'SAMVATSARI' (where we fast to repent for our past misdeeds and vow not to repeat them), I sincerely apologise for everything if I have ever hurted you knowingly or unknowingly in any ways by my action, my talk or my thoughts. Please exonerate me with your full affection. From my inner heart, I ask your forgiveness for all the words, deeds & mistakes, committed by me willingly or un-willingly; mentally, verbally or physically which might have hurt you or your feelings in anyway. I sincerely believe that on this great Parv of forgiveness and forbearance you will forgive us and forget my shortcomings.


Forgiveness works like a dazzling jewel to dispel the darkness of wrong belief.

The word forgiveness ‘Kshama’ means patience, forbearance and pardon. To pardon an enemy or a friend both is the jewel of Yatis. Forbearance is the ornament of brave. Barambar Khamat Khamna to all of you. It is a Parva of Kshama & Maitry. This is the most auspicious day to do self- introspection and recall all our sinful activities. Also if our actions did hurt anyone, we should try to open the heart and ask forgiveness from them and forget without putting any knot.

Samatsavari is the Last day of this festivale & main Day. This day All Jains keep fasting.. On Next day they take breakfast which called as Parna.

Jain strongly believes in forgiving. On the Samatsvari last partikarman all person plead this message within them, & to all other person who are connected with them in past life in any manner. Jaines plead there forgiveness message to all person whom they know and does 'nt matter which sector or cast they belog. The forgiving plead is not limited into present life but also include there all previous lifes.


  • The meaning of forgiveness is tolerance.
  • To believe that tolerance is one’s responsibility and to oppose the negative forces of animosity is forgiveness.
  • Tolerance is to overlook the source of the negative forces of anger.
  • Forgiveness is the weapon of the strong willed.

To be able to keep a check on one’s power of destruction is forgiveness. The one who does not know to forgive is considered as lowly. The person who judges others and refuses to grant pardon is himself unpardonable. Strength lies with the one whose heart is full of benevolence. A person who can overlook the shortcomings, lapses and wrong-doings is a source of joy and peace. Great is the man who does not hesitate to ask for pardon for his own mistakes. The harbinger of peace is one who makes an attempt to alleviate the sufferings that have occurred due to his disregard.
