Forgiveness and the Dalai Lama

Forgiveness and The Dalai Lama

I have had the good fortune to have met the Dalai Lama and interview him for my book on Finding Forgiveness. If anyone knows the history of His Holiness and what he has done for the Tibetan people, it becomes very clear that he is the embodiment of compassion and forgiveness. Living in exile, His Holiness who has suffered himself has campaigned for forgiveness and taking social responsibility for our actions. He teaches us that in order to forgive we need to become aware of our thinking. He teaches us the importance of looking at our anger and analyzing it. By doing this we realize that our anger is not getting us what we want. He teaches about patience as being a very important component of forgiveness, something all of us need to develop.
