Jai Jinendra,

Das Lakshan Maha Parva starts from Saturday, August, 26th to Monday, Sep 4th, 2017.

Daslakshan Parva or the Festival of ten virtues is the Paryushan festival celebrated by Digambar Jains annually for self-purification and uplift. This parva ultimately leads the soul to its true destination of ultimate happiness and freedom i.e nirvana or salvation or moksha.

Following are the ten universal virtues: 1. क्षमा 2. विनम्रता 3. माया का विनाश 4. निर्मलता 5. सत्य 6. संयम 7. तप 8. त्याग 9.परिग्रह का निवारण 10. ब्रह्मचर्य.
