School will observe holiday on Tuesday 03/09/19 on account of Sambatsari. Samvatsari is the last day of Paryusana -the eight or ten day festival of Jains. It is the holiest day of the Jain calendar.
Paryusana is one of the most famous festivals of Jain religion. Most Jains observe a complete fast on this day. The whole day is spent in prayers and contemplation. A yearly elaborate penitential retreat called samvatsati pratikramana is performed on this day.
After the pratikramana Jains seek forgiveness from all the creatures of the world whom they may have harmed knowingly or unknowingly by uttering the phrase- Micchami Dukkadam.
As a matter of ritual, they personally greet their friends and relatives Micchami Dukkadam.
