Celebrated In: India in Rain Season
Celebrated By: Jain (Jainism)

  KSHAMAVANI PARVA (क्षमावाणी पर्व) is the function of forgiveness. Forgiveness is supposed to be the first and foremost virtue of ascetics and scholars. Forgiveness helps not only in pacifying anger and making us religious minded by removing all sins, but is also capable in keeping us hale and hearty. Forgiveness is a virtue of humility and an ornament of social courtesy.

   On this auspicious day of KSHAMAVANI PARVA every member of Jain community approaches his relatives, friends, colleague and begs pardon of them for all faults or mistakes committed knowingly or unknowingly. He or she confesses his/her wrongs and apologizes for these to every follower of his own religion or other religions. Thus he/she feels relieved of the heavy burden hanging on his/her head of the sins of previous years. By this act the person starts social life afresh living together in love and peace with all, following the noble principle of peaceful co-existence. On this auspicious day, every Jains dedicate themselves heart and soul to submit to their popular slogan Live and Let Live, for peace and happiness. Thus this annual parva is not merely a traditional ritual, but also a first step on the path to attain liberation or salvation.  
 
 Khamemi Savve Jiva, Savve Jiva Khamantu Mi
 Mitti Me Savva bhuesu, Veram majjham na Kenai.
