Day of Forgiveness

On this 'kshamaapana'-day, the annual day of asking for forgiveness according to Jaina religion,

today I ask the forgiveness of all and any whom I may have intentionally or inadvertently caused any hurt, pain or offense.

The mantra is in the ancient Parkrit language ( sister of Sanskrit)

khAmemi savve jIvA savve jIvA khamantu me.
mittI me savvabhUesu veraM majjhaM Na keNa i

I forgive all living beings, may all of them forgive me,
I have friendship with all, enmity with none.

evamahaM AloiyaM nindiyaM grahiyaM duguNchiyaM sammam
tiviheNaM padikkanto vandAmi jiNaM chauvvIsam .. 

Thus, I truly reflect, reproach, censure and abhor (my wrong doings)
I atone threefold (for my acts of mind, speech and body) and pay obeisance to the 24 Jinas (Founding Masters of Jaina Tradition)

Again seeking your forgiveness,

Swami Veda Bharati

" You do not become or attain God, and even if you could become God, you'd be sorry, because if that happened, you would no longer be understood by anybody. Strive instead for one goal, and that is to understand your Self; know how to know the Self. If you do not know yourself and you are trying to know God, it is not possible to do so. Don't hanker after God; know about yourself first. You are fully equipped to know yourself; you have all the means and tools to do so. "
