JAIN DIGAMBER DASLAKHAN PARVA – 2013
TIRTHANKAR MAHAVIR SWAMI
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 Monday, September 09, 2013 to Wednesday, September 18, 2013 for a ten days period followed by Kshamapana day on Thursday 19, 2013 the eleventh day. 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.
(11) The eleventh day of September 19th 2013 will be the day of Kashma Yachna this year.
