Global Forgiveness Day
Global Forgiveness Day 2020: In 1994 the organization, ‘The Christian Embassy of Christ’s Ambassadors’ hung a single banner proclaiming National Forgiveness Day in downtown Victoria, British Columbia. As the annual celebration progressed, overwhelming media attention required that National Forgiveness Day be renamed Global Forgiveness Day. This was done to spread the message across the globe. Global Forgiveness Day 2020: Why would anyone forget someone who wronged him or her in the past? Do you think sticking around for past maltreatment from anyone is worth it? No. Forgiveness is the key to wash away all the painful past and start a new journey. But if you want to forgive someone for any kind of misbehaviour and harm they did to you in past, what could be a better day than Global Forgiveness Day. Celebrated on July 7 every year, Global Forgiveness Day aims to spread awareness about the healing power of forgiveness and make the world a happy place to live in. Forgiveness is choosing to be free from past pain or hurt and permitting ourselves to experience happiness again. In Jainism, every year they observe 8 days rituals and on the last day, which is called “Samvatsari”. On samvatsari they say “Micchami Dukkadam” i.e please forgive me if I have hurt you. It’s a day to forgive and to be forgiven.
