Forgiveness

How often did Buddha, Mohammed, Shankara, Jesus, and other enlightened teachers smile forgivingly at the actions of others? How often will we all err at some point as we work through the lessons we must learn?

 

Forgiveness fosters a channel of love and understanding in the heart. It creates a pocket of tranquillity in the world. Years of religious observance cannot cultivate our spirit as much as a moment of forgiveness. Only when we practice forgiveness can life blossom into the fullness we desire.

 

The most beautiful thing that a person can do is to forgive. -Judaism

 

Then Peter asked of Jesus, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven." - Christianity

 

Recompense injury with kindness. - Taoism

 

Never is hate diminished by hatred; It is only diminished by love - This is an eternal law. - Buddhism

 

Where there is forgiveness, there is God. - Sikhism

 

Those who forgive and make peace shall find a reward for it is from God. - Islam
