Michhami Dukkadam

Michhami Dukkadam meaning ‘My bad deeds be fruitless’. Jains at the end of festival of Paryushana, ask for forgiveness for anything wrong that I have done or caused any harm to anyone.

This is not to just follow the tradition, but I really mean it and ask for forgiveness if I have hurt someone.

mann vachan kaya se jaante hue ya ajante hue dil dukhaya ho to aapse Michhami Dukkadam

Translation: If I have caused you offence in any way, knowingly or unknowingly, in thought word or deed, then I seek your forgiveness

    means may my bad deeds be forgiven. Michchhami (Mithya) means fruitless /
    forgiven and Dukkadam (Dushkrit) means bad deeds. Thus, by forgiving

    definition defined in the first line and translation done in the last line is contradicting.  In the first line it is defined as MY BAD DEEDS BE FRUITLESS.   THe same Michami Dukkadam is translated as I SEEK YOUR FORGIVENESS.  according to me.. THe meaning of MICHAMI DUKKADAM is I BEG YOUR PARDON FOR EVERY THAT DEED WHICH HAS HURT YOU.  ME means I, Chami means  FORGIVE and DUKKADAM means IF I HURT YOU.
