In this whole year if knowingly or unknowingly with my deeds, words, or behaviour if i had hurted u, then I am folding my hands 4 forgivenes…MICHCHAMI DUKKADAM..
Michchhami means, “to be fruitless (forgiven)” and Dukkadam (Dushkrut) means “ bad deeds”. Therefore the meaning of Michchhami Dukkadam is:
“My bad deeds (with you) be fruitless“.
So concept behind saying or writing someone “Michchhami Dukkadam” is that
If I have done any harm to you then those bad deeds to be forgiven (to be fruitless).
What do we mean when we “ Michchhami Dukkadam”?
“I forgive (from the bottom of my heart without any reservation) all living beings (who may have caused me any pain and suffering either in this life or previous lives), and I beg (again from the bottom of my heart without any reservation) for the forgiveness from all living beings (no matter how small or big to whom I may have caused pain and suffering in this life or previous lives, knowingly or unknowingly, mentally, verbally or physically, or if I have asked or encouraged someone else to carry out such activities). (Let all creatures know that) I have a friendship with everybody and I have no revenge (animosity or enmity) toward anybody.”
