I heard about a religious festival in Jainism called Paryushan . It is a very stringently followed festival by the Jains. Can someone please share any details about the worship and norms of this festival?

Paryushan is a Jain festival where Swetambar Jains follow Paryushan for 8 days while Digambara Jains follow it for 10 days.

On this day they also observe a unique custom where they ask every individual they may have offended during the year for forgiveness. Old quarrels are forgotten and friendships and relationships renewed as they fold their hands and ask for Micchamidukadam or forgiveness.
