Forgiveness power - Dalai Lama
The passage below is from the Book "beyond Religion" written by Dalai Lama, and it explain his concept of forgiveness:
"...If, on the other hand, you are able to overcome your feelings of hostility toward wrongdoers and forgive them, there is an immediate and perceptible benefit to you. By leaving past actions in the past and restoring your concern for the well- being of those who have done you wrong, you gain a tremendous feeling of inner confidence and freedom, which allows you to move on as your negative thoughts and emotions tend to dissipate."
May be it is hard to reach that level of being in peace with someone who hurts us, but , it is so beautiful and humble, a new form of love in accepting others with their mistakes.
