Seeking salvation

The Digambar are one of two Jain sects that live in Gujarat.
Daslakshna parva–the Digambar Jain festival of 10 virtues–is observed for 10 days. This year the festival is held from 2-12 September. During these 10 days, Jains will strictly observe 10 virtues and seek to rid themselves of dharma. Dharma, as used in this instance,is the weight of all hateful emotions. Instead, Jains are encouraged to seek forebearance, humility, right conduct, purity, etc. as the path to salvation. PRAY for Digambar Jains over the next 10 days as they observe this holy time. Pray that, as they are meditating and focusing on right, the Spirit of God will speak to them. Pray that they will be receptive and will turn to Jesus, who is Righteousness and is the only path to salvation.
Act 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
