Second Day of Sukkot, Ksamavani, Dashalakshani-parva ends

When:
Tuesday, September 25, 2018 (all day)
Description:

Second Day of Sukkot: September 24 - 30: A pilgrimage feast and a time of thanksgiving, it celebrates God's presence in creation and among the Jewish people.

On Ksamavani, Jains ask forgiveness of others for wrongs committed during the previous year, and likewise forgive those who caused them suffering.

The Digambara sect celebrates Dashalakshani-parva for ten days (until July 31) by fasting, worship, meditation, confession, and by dedicating each day to a virtue: forgiveness, humility, honesty, purity, truthfulness, self-restraint, asceticism, study, detachment, and celibacy.
