Jain Daslakshan Parva or the Festival of ten virtues is the Paryushan festival celebrated by the Digambar Jains annually for self-purification and uplift. This year Dash Lakshan Parva will be celebrated from Wednesday, September 19, 2012 to Friday, September 28, 2012 for a ten days period followed by Kshamapana day on Saturday 29, 2012.

This parva ultimately leads the soul to its true destination of ultimate happiness and freedom i.e., niravana or salvation. All Digambar jains celebrate the Dash Lakshan Parva religiously, enthusiastically and devotedly.

The Das Lakshan parva is the Jain festival for the observance of ten universal virtues namely:

(1) Uttama Kshama - Supreme Forgiveness
(2) Uttama Mardava - Tenderness or Humility
(3) Uttama Arjaya - Straight-forwardness or Honesty
(4) Uttama Shaucha - Contentment or Purity
(5) Uttama Satya - Truthfulness
(6) Uttama Sanyam - Self-restraint
(7) Uttama Tapa - Penance or Austerities
(8) Uttama Tyaga - Renunciation
(9) Uttama Akinchanya - Non-attachment
(10) Uttama Brahmacarya - Chastity or celibacy

These ten Jain universal virtues aim at the uplift of the soul and are vividly preached, observed and practiced during the festival. The eleventh day of September 29th 2012 will be the day of Kashma Yachna this year.
